area forecast discussion

858 pm pdt Tue aug 20 2019

Synopsis A cold front will bring rain to the region tonight and
Wednesday. Expect dry weather by Thursday afternoon with a weak
high pressure over the area. A series of systems will pass
generally to our north Friday into the weekend keeping
temperatures near normal and bringing a chance of showers mainly
to the coast and northern areas.

Short term tonight through Friday Dry weather tonight for the
interior but klgx shows showers over the coastal waters
approaching. This is due to a cold front that will move inland on
Wednesday. The current forecast is on track. 33
previous discussion... A fairly potent weather system near
45n 132w will move northeast and track into the central b.C. Coast
tonight. The front will slide onshore a bit quicker than expected
with showers chances along the coast tonight pushing eastward
into the puget sound area by daybreak. Models still fluctuate on
qpf amounts, but most generally in the range of a quarter of an
inch to possibly a half inch in spots around the sound with around
an inch along the coast. The front will move quickly through
western washington and weaken over the cascades by evening.

Mesoscale models highlight the possibility for the development of
a convergence zone over snohomish king counties Wednesday night
into early Thursday morning. Drier weather expected with some
sunshine by Thursday afternoon as a weak area of high pressure
builds over the area. Temperatures will be cooler on Wednesday
with highs in the 60s with temperatures into the mid 70s on
Thursday.

The upper level ridge over the area Thursday will become flattened
by Friday with the approach of another upper level trough.

Although the bulk of the energy with this system will generally be
north of the area, there will be a few showers possible across the
northern tier on Friday. Temperatures on Friday will be in the mid
60s to mid 70s across the area. Jd

Long term Saturday through Tuesday Previous discussion... Another
weather system north of the area looks to bring a chance for pops
on Saturday with the GFS being a bit drier than the ecmwf.

Onshore flow expected through the weekend with temperatures near
normal. Guidance does suggest high pressure aloft building into
the area on Monday. Pattern change is possible heading into the
middle of next week if the current trends are maintained with
higher amplitude ridging over the pacific northeast and warmer
temperatures. Jd

Aviation A cold front will approach western wa tonight,
spreading rain to the coast. Rain will spread to the interior
Wednesday morning with possible MVFR conditions. Expect post-
frontal onshore flow and showers in the interior and cascades
Wednesday afternoon and evening. The flow aloft is southwesterly.

33
ksea... Mid and high level clouds withVFR conditions through
tonight. Ceilings will to MVFR levels after daybreak with rain as a
cold front moves into the central puget sound. Southwesterly winds
to 12 kt. 33

Marine Winds will increase tonight as a cold front approaches
western wa - small craft advisories are in effect for all waters.

Expect post-frontal onshore flow Wednesday afternoon and evening
with small craft advisory winds continuing through the strait. A
weak front will brush the area later Friday and Saturday with
minimal affect on the winds. 33

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.
