Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 315 PM PST Thu Mar 4 2021

SYNOPSIS. A slow moving frontal system just off the coast will move slowly inland through Friday. An upper level trough will move through the region Friday night and Saturday morning. Another weather system arrives Sunday. An upper level trough will remain just offshore during the first half of next week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. Rainy weather on tap as the front stalls near the coast tonight. The upper level trough just off the West Coast will send out a second frontal wave that will arrive Friday. The cold front will finally shift through the interior of Western Washington later on Friday and the precip will turn more showery. There's a Winter weather advisory for the Olympics with snow at the higher elevations and with a decent amount of rain in the lower elevations in southerly flow aloft. A flood watch is up for the Skokomish River in Mason county. After the front moves through, the air will destabilize for a chance of a couple of thunderstorms near the coast, and the upper trough will shift ashore on Saturday with showery weather over the weekend at times through Saturday and the chance for another frontal system Sunday. 19

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. It looks like an upper trough will be a fixture for the weather along the West Coast into next week. No doubt there will be showery periods, but also some sunbreaks at times. The air mass will be a bit cool and the snow level relatively low. The 6-10 day outlook is showing that about the western third of the country is likely to be cool--but especially as you go south toward southern California. Precipitation ranges from favoring somewhat drier than normal conditions across Washington State, to wetter conditions favored for the southern half of California. So, it would seem that weather systems are likely to be splitting with most of the action going in to the south of WA. 19

AVIATION. Southwesterly flow will persist aloft as an upper level trough digs into the northeastern Pacific and becomes the dominant influence across the Pacific Northwest. Radar this afternoon shows that the rain ahead of the frontal system has already made its way into the Sound at this hour. Expect periods of rain to continue for area terminals as the frontal system slowly progresses through the region through Friday. Ceilings and visibilities at area TAF sites are mainly a mix of MVFR and VFR this afternoon and expect that trend to continue into Friday, with lower cigs and visibilities possible in areas of heavier rain. Gusty conditions persist as well this afternoon, mainly for terminals along the coast (KHQM) and across the Northern Interior (KPAE,KBLI). Elsewhere, southerly surface winds primarily at 8-13 kts expected, shifting more southeasterly tonight.

KSEA . Southerly winds this afternoon, generally between 7-13 knots. Rain to continue into Friday. Conditions currently VFR, becoming MVFR in any heavier showers. 14

MARINE. A vigorous cold front will slowly move through the area waters through Friday. Gales will continue for the coastal waters through Friday night, with brief lulls in the winds at times. Gusty winds will persist across portions of the Eastern Strait and Northern Interior waters as well through Friday as the frontal system makes its way through the region.

Meanwhile, offshore swells will continue to build this evening and remain elevated, primarily between 13-18 feet, into early Friday morning before briefly subsiding ahead of another swell train expected to arrive overnight into Saturday.

A number of marine headlines are posted for area waters today and into Friday evening, including offshore gale warnings and Small Craft Advisories for much of the inland waters. In addition, a gale watch is in effect for the Northern Inland waters and the Eastern Strait for Friday as the front moves through the area. Additional marine headlines are likely Sunday into early next week as the unsettled pattern continues. 14

HYDROLOGY. Stalling front will keep rain focused in the Olympics in southerly flow aloft (with snow higher elevations). With 2-3" of rain for the Skokomish basin, a flood watch is up for that river.

SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WA . Flood Watch through Friday afternoon for Hood Canal Area-Lower Chehalis Valley Area-Olympics.
