Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 311 AM PST Sat Dec 4 2021

SYNOPSIS. Colder conditions will continue into next week. Multiple systems will make their way through the area in the next seven days. These will bring mostly lowland rain, mountain snow, and breezy conditions. However, there is the slight potential for some wintery precipitation at the lower elevations a few times in the next seven days.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH MONDAY/. The front is still approaching the area early this morning with more widespread echoes showing up on radar. However, the air at the surface is still rather dry and these echoes are primarily aloft with minimal to no precipitation hitting the ground yet. Precipitation should fill in closer to daybreak with more areas receiving rain and in places, potentially a rain/snow mix. Mountain snow is still expected across the Cascades.

The focal point of the near term forecast is still the possibility for colder temperatures and for wintry weather over the area. The biggest change from the previous forecast would be that dry surface air lingering, as well as mid level temperatures that have not cooled much more acting to preclude more widespread rain/snow mix at lower elevations. As the front nears, strong warm air advection is still anticipated, reducing the chances for nearly anything in the lowlands. A rainy and snowy mix is still possible today across the San Juans, northern Olympic Peninsula, as well as western Whatcom and Skagit counties. At this point, no accumulation is expected in these areas, but it may be enough to be visible on grassy surfaces for a short amount of time before the snow levels rise and rain fills in.

The heaviest frozen precipitation is still expected to fall over the Cascades and impact both Stevens and Snowqualmie Pass. Between 8-12 inches of precipitation is expected over the passes, which will impact travel today.

Colder afternoon highs in the low 40s are expected for Sunday with the chance for some lingering convergence zone activity north of Everett by Sunday morning. The rest of the day looks to be fairly dry before the next system arrives Sunday evening into Monday morning. That system will be stronger than the system moving in today and will bring breezy conditions and more widespread precipitation to the area. There is still some uncertainty relating to precipitation type in the hills, but the majority will likely fall as rain in the lowlands with another shot of mountain snow. Areas in the Cascade foothills could see another round of mixed precipitation or very brief and minimal accumulations.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Showers could linger in places on Tuesday as a weak attempt at high pressure is made. At this point, the reprieve does not look long lived as additional systems will make their way into the area through the remainder of the week. Snow levels may go back up to between 3000-3500 feet by Tuesday afternoon, decreasing to 2000-2500ft by Wednesday. This is still subject to a high degree of uncertainty. At this point, it could be yet another decent signal for more mountain snow.

Longer range ensemble analysis show the trough and colder signal remaining over the region through the rest of the week for additional chances for mountain snow and potentially mixed lowland precipitation. More details will resolve themselves in the coming days as for what to expect.
