Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 238 AM PST Sat Dec 14 2019

SYNOPSIS. Expect isolated to scattered showers today and Sunday as weak upper level disturbances clip the area. A warm front will brush the area on Monday. A more active weather pattern will potentially make a return mid to late next week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH MONDAY/. A weak upper level disturbance will trigger isolated to scattered showers across western WA today. Snow levels will remain low in the mountains, around 2500 feet, with a few inches of snow possible at the passes. A few more showers are expected on Sunday as another upper level disturbance tracks down from B.C. (although shower coverage looks less compared to today). Temperatures will be close to normal with highs in the 40s and lows dipping into the 30s.

A warm front will clip the region on Monday for a chance of rain. Rainfall amounts are generally light with just a few hundredths in the interior and around a tenth of an inch at the coast. This weak front will stall over southern B.C. as we move into Monday night, with light rain possible near the Canadian border. 33

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. An upper level trough will dig offshore Tuesday and Wednesday while a weak/splitting front clips WA. Rain will increase Wednesday night and Thursday as a strong jet steers moisture toward the Pac NW. We may see another period of heavy snow in the Cascades during this period as snow levels will remain low. The pattern will remain active toward the weekend as a stronger Pacific frontal system arrives. 33

AVIATION. Northwesterly flow aloft as an upper level ridge shifts into the coastal waters. The air is stable and moist with a few showers across Western Washington. Cigs are LIFR across the South Sound at KOLM, KPWT. MVFR/IFR cigs into central/northern Puget Sound with spots of LIFR. Expect MVFR/IFR cigs through the morning with LIFR for the current spots in the South Sound. Patchy fog across the South Sound as well, will monitor other locations for fog development, though may be limited with low clouds. MVFR/VFR for the afternoon. Winds light southerly through today.

KSEA . IFR cigs expected this morning. Fog development should be limited to the South Sound, especially with low clouds. Cigs should improve to VFR this afternoon, but it is possible cigs are MVFR this afternoon through tonight with low to mid level clouds. Light southerly winds. JD

MARINE. A weak disturbance has allowed for the continuation of scattered showers across the waters early this morning. With the disturbance lingering through much of the day today, think spotty activity will stick around, although coverage will not be all that impressive overall. Winds across all waters are light and will remain below headline criteria through the weekend.

The only remaining headline continues to be the small craft advisory for the Coastal Waters and the western strait of Juan de Fuca for hazardous seas. West swell of generally 11-13 ft can be expected through the morning hours before decreasing between 9-11 ft and eventually subsiding below 10ft this evening. The western Strait swell will subside a few hours before the Coastal Waters swell this afternoon , tho will keep expiration of the headline for both zones at 4pm this afternoon. Seas will then remain calm through the weekend.

The next notable frontal system will approach the area late Tuesday into Wednesday. Winds look to pick up back to small craft advisory levels for many of the marine zones beginning Monday well ahead of the front as warm air advection increases. Winds will likely remain elevated thru frontal passage and quite possibly for much of the remainder of the week given an active storm track.

Kovacik

HYDROLOGY. There are no flooding concerns at this time as shower activity will remain scattered and light. Generally quiet conditions will prevail through the weekend and into early next week before the next storm systems affect the region by mid next week.

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.
