Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 245 AM PDT Tue Sep 28 2021

SYNOPSIS. An upper level trough will keep showers and isolated thunderstorms in the forecast today, along with lower snow levels in the mountains. Another system will bring additional rain and wind to the region Wednesday night and Thursday before drier conditions return for the end of the week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Active weather will continue through the short term forecast across western WA.

The air mass remains cool and unstable today for additional showers and isolated thunderstorms. A surface trough is currently passing through the region early this morning (with scattered showers) and we'll see onshore flow increase behind this trough this morning. With strengthening onshore flow we'll likely see a Puget Sound Convergence Zone forming around the King/Snohomish line. This area within the PSCZ may see heavy showers, small hail, and cloud-to-ground lightning. It will be cooler today with highs only around 60 degrees. Up in the mountains, the cooler air mass will also bring snow levels down to around 5000-6000 feet with a few inches of snow possible on the higher mountain peaks. Showers will wind down this evening as the flow flips offshore. A warm front will clip the region on Wednesday with rain mostly along the coast and in the Northwest Interior. It will likely be windy in these locations as well, especially toward Wednesday night as SE pressure gradients tighten (S/SE gusts to 35-45 mph). In the interior, expect light rain from Seattle southward by the afternoon (less than 0.10").

Wet and rainy weather will follow on Thursday, the end of September, as a baroclinic band slowly shifts S/SE through western WA. Additional rainfall amounts will range from 1-2" along the coast to 0.50-1" in the interior. This system will exit Thursday night with steady rain tapering off. 33

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. The weather pattern from Friday through the weekend looks much quieter across the region with high pressure over the PacNW. The flow will turn offshore and we'll see temperatures gradually warming back up into the upper 60s to lower 70s. The ridge axis starts to shift east and farther inland on Monday with a slight chance of rain along the coast. Temps will remain mild across the interior. 33

AVIATION. Southwesterly to west-northwest flow aloft as an upper trough moves over the area. Mostly VFR to higher MVFR ceilings across the region, with pockets of lower flight conditions under the heavier showers. Will continue to see showers move across the region through the morning and while an isolated thunderstorm cannot be ruled out (especially near the coastal areas), probability and confidence both remain too low to warrant any TS inclusion in any TAF at this time. A Puget Sound Convergence Zone may develops this afternoon north of or near KPAE/KAWO and would will provide for lower flight conditions, heavy showers and possible thunderstorms. Other than through the Strait of Juan de Fuca and north of the convergence zone, expect generally southerly winds to prevail today.

KSEA . Expect mostly low VFR to increasingly MVFR ceilings toward daybreak, with ceilings generally lifting back to VFR this afternoon. Rounds of showers will likely continue this morning, becoming less frequent by late afternoon, though heavier shower could bring lower conditions at times. A PSCZ may form this afternoon but likely remains well north of the terminal area. Breezy southerly surface winds continue, but will be easing today. Cullen

MARINE. Breezy southerly winds continue through the inland waters of the Salish Sea this morning, with light flow through the Strait of Juan de Fuca. However, an onshore push to bring increasing west winds through the Strait this morning. Meanwhile, gusty winds associated with showers over the coastal waters continue through the day. Seas remain elevated over the coastal waters as a large west swell continues to move through, but will gradually ease later today and into Wednesday. All this to say that current advisories remain or will be in effect for all of the area waters as of this morning.

The next front will move through the coastal waters Wednesday and push inland through Thursday, with some gales likely to develop across the coastal waters and the northern inland waters and eastern Strait. As a result, a Gale Watch has been issued for this next system. Seas over the coastal waters may briefly drop below 10 ft for a short time, but will again become confused with a mix of the residual west swell and the large wind wave/fresh swell contribution ahead of the front. After the winds ease behind the front, expect another west swell to maintain seas near 10 ft through much of the week, before lowering more significantly over the weekend. Cullen
