Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 902 PM PDT Mon Jul 26 2021

SYNOPSIS. Continued dry weather with a warming trend is expected the next several days. A mid level ridge of high pressure will continue to build north into the area through the week, sending temperatures to above normal levels for the next several days. Skies will remain mainly clear in the daylight hours with some clouds appearing overnight.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Southwesterly flow aloft continues across the area around the western periphery of the pronounced upper level ridge of high pressure. This will contribute to some marine stratus overnight in favored areas. Of additional note is a thin layer of elevated smoke/haze appears to have drifted across the area but is not coming from the southwest. It was fairly evident on the last several visible satellite frames before sunlight disappeared. The HRRR smoke model this evening hints at some very thin coverage throughout the next few days as well but the more significant smoke will remain east and southeast of the area and fortunately the deep southwesterly flow will keep deeper smoke layers out of the area through the next few days. Temperatures will steadily warm through the latter portion of the week as mid level heights climb with the southwestern ridge building into the area. Temps will climb quickly above normal Tuesday and then well above normal by Wednesday and Thursday. Plenty of mid to upper 80s are expected with low 90s in the warmer spots. LJ

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. The upper level ridge continues to be the controlling feature through the weekend. Ensemble guidance continues to highlight a consistent westward shift of the ridge axis, with some variability in terms of the amplitude through Saturday. Expect warm temperatures to continue to trend warmer Friday and Saturday, solidly into the mid to upper 80s across the interior with some areas south of Tacoma, and perhaps some locations along the Cascade foothills east of I-405 reaching into the lower 90s. Low temperatures will dip into the upper 50s providing some overnight relief, however some locations through the metro area eastward into the Cascades could remain in the low 60s overnight which would be less of a relief. More enhanced onshore flow, and perhaps slightly cooler temperatures will return by the start of next week with a strengthening low off the coast of B.C. by late Sunday or Monday. The warm and dry pattern looks to continue through the 7 day forecast.

AVIATION. Generally quiet weather with mainly clear skies to start the period. Coastal stratus will roll in overnight with onshore flow and so MVFR/IFR cigs will occur at coastal terminals with just a brief period of clouds farther inland. This should dissipate all locales by the 18-20Z timeframe with clear conditions thereafter. Westerly winds at 5-10 knots will persist.

KSEA . Light northerly winds at less than 10 knots gradually becoming westerly overnight and persisting into Tuesday. Mainly clear skies will give way to some lower clouds 12-15Z Tuesday but not expecting reduced cigs at this time. Clear skies prevail after 17-19Z.

LJ/Butwin

MARINE. Onshore flow will prevail the next few days with nightly pushes of stronger winds down the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Expecting at least Small Craft Advisory conditions each evening with some brief gales. LJ/Butwin

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

Small Craft Advisory from midnight tonight to 5 AM PDT Tuesday for Central U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca.

Gale Warning until midnight PDT tonight for Central U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca.
