Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 245 PM PDT Mon Jun 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. Weak high pressure is over the region. A front will brush Western Washington Tuesday afternoon and evening. A more significant weather system will arrive for the end of the week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Weak high pressure will give way to a front Tuesday afternoon and evening. The front should only bring precip to the north part of Western Washington and the postfrontal showers dry up pretty quick Tuesday night. Wednesday and and Thursday should be dry--there will be a weak front dissipating near the coast Thursday afternoon and night but that should dry up with nothing more than clouds. High temps will be average with highs in the 60s to lower 70s and lows will be in the mid 40s to the lower 50s for the most part. 19

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. A new upper trough will work slowly east across the Northeast Pacific in the week ahead. The associated front should bring some rain to the area Friday night or Saturday and then cool showery weather will follow in the wake of the front. The upper trough axis will be moving ashore Sunday. High temps over the weekend should cool to the upper 50s to mid 60s and low temps will be in the 40s to around 50--so a bit on the cool side with a little snow on the mountain peaks. 19

AVIATION. An exiting upper trough is gradually being replaced by a short wave upper ridge this afternoon and is expected to pass over the area tonight. The flow aloft will be westerly. At the surface, onshore flow will continue with high pressure offshore and lower pressure inland. The air mass will be stable and relatively dry. VFR conditions present over all of W WA this morning and will persist into Tuesday although cigs are expected to lower down to around 10k ft for most TAF locations.

KSEA . VFR conditions in place with mostly SCT mid clouds in place over the terminal. Mid level cigs will start to develop late tonight . likely to be in place by early Tuesday morning with cloud bases around 9k ft. Westerly winds this afternoon becoming northerly this evening. 18

MARINE. Onshore flow will continue today with another round of small craft advisory strength west winds for the central and eastern Strait later today and tonight. Inherited headlines look good and will remain unchanged for the afternoon forecast package.

A weak front will move through the area later Tuesday. This will turn the flow more southerly with a few hours of small craft advisory strength south winds possible over the Coastal Waters. As current models suggest that these sort of speeds are not expected until Tuesday night . will defer any headlines at this time.

Onshore flow will resume on Wednesday and continue through the end of the week. Small craft advisory strength west winds are likely each evening in the central and eastern Strait. There could also be small craft advisory strength northwest winds in the late afternoon and evening hours each day for the Coastal Waters. 18

HYDROLOGY. The daily hydrology discussion has ended until the start of the next rainy season; it will only be updated as needed until then.

SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WA . None. PZ . Small Craft Advisory until 5 AM PDT Tuesday for Central U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca-East Entrance U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca.

Small Craft Advisory from 6 PM this evening to midnight PDT tonight for Northern Inland Waters Including The San Juan Islands.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
