Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 301 AM PST Wed Dec 11 2019

SYNOPSIS. A strong weather system will move through the area later this morning through early Friday. This system will bring heavy snow to the Cascades, especially above 3500 to 4000 feet. Rain elsewhere with locally windy conditions tonight. Showers Friday into early Saturday. Active weather into early next week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Satellite imagery shows low clouds across much of Western Washington this morning with high clouds offshore ahead of the next system. Patchy fog will be around through the morning. A strong, December-like, frontal system will move onshore late this morning and slide east through today with active weather through Friday. This system will bring widespread rainfall for the Lowlands, as well as breezy conditions and mountain snow. Headlines through Friday for the system:

Lowland Rainfall: Scattered showers this morning with widespread rainfall this afternoon into tonight. The evening commute will be impacted. Post-frontal showers late tonight into Thursday morning. A secondary front will move through Thursday afternoon into Thursday night with more rain for the Lowlands. Post-frontal showers into Friday.

Snow levels: Snow levels will be generally between 3500 and 4500 feet through Thursday with the higher snow levels (around 4500 feet) across the Southern Cascades. Snow levels will lower to 2500 to 3500 feet feet Thursday night into Friday morning. This means that heavier snow accumulations are expected at Stevens Pass rather than Snoqualmie.

Snow Amounts: Accumulations generally 3-6 inches below 3500 feet (best chance of accumulation early Friday morning), 1-2 feet between 3500-4500 feet, and 2-4 feet above 4500 feet. Winter Storm Warning for the Cascades this afternoon through Friday morning. A Winter Weather Advisory in effect for the Olympics late this morning through Thursday evening.

Gusty Winds: Breezy southerly winds are expected with this system with a decent BLI-YZT gradient tonight. Gusts will generally be 20-30 MPH. Stronger winds with gusts 35-40 MPH will be possible along the coast and across the North Interior (Western Whatcom/Skagit and San Juans).

There will also be a slight chance of thunderstorms for the coast with the post-frontal showers Thursday afternoon into early Thursday night with cool air aloft. Temperatures through this week will be in the upper 40s to low 50s across Western Washington. JD

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Post-frontal showers may be around through early Saturday morning as the system slides east. Another weather system may slide south of the area on Saturday, however, ensembles suggest at least the chance for POPs, especially for southern areas Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. Another system will move through Sunday into Monday. Ensembles do suggest the active pattern next week as well with mean troughing off the Pac NW. Temperatures will be near normal in the mid 40s for the weekend with upper 40s into next week. JD

AVIATION. Weak upper level ridge moving east of the area this morning. Southwesterly flow aloft. Light flow in the lower levels becoming easterly this afternoon. Rain out ahead of the front spreading over the area this afternoon with the front moving through Western Washington overnight. Low level flow becoming southerly behind the front.

Ceilings in the 1500-2500 foot range with local ceilings below 1000 feet and visibility 1-3sm in fog until around 18z. Little change in the ceilings with the onset of the rain this afternoon into tonight. Local visibility 3-5sm in moderate rain 00z-06z.

KSEA . Ceilings around 1500 feet could lift into the 2000-2500 foot range later this morning. Visibility 1-3sm on fog at times until 15z. Rain beginning this afternoon with visibility 3-5sm in moderate rain at times 00z-06z. Southeasterly winds 4 to 8 knots becoming southerly 8 to 12 knots after 03z. Felton

MARINE. A vigorous frontal system will move through the area today and tonight. Gale force southeast winds are likely for the Coastal Waters, East Entrance Strait of Juan de Fuca, and Northern Inland Waters with this system. The strongest winds should be this evening. Small craft advisory strength winds are likely all other waters as well later today and tonight.

Off and on advisory strength south to southwest winds will continue into Thursday as a second trough crosses the area. Onshore flow will gradually ease Thursday night and Friday. A weather disturbance will move inland to the south next weekend with easterly offshore flow for the area.

Lastly, west swell over the Coastal Waters will build to 15-18 feet tonight and Thursday, then gradually subside Friday through Sunday.

HYDROLOGY. A wet storm system will impact the region this afternoon through Friday. Given precipitation amounts and snow levels in the 4000-5000 foot range - most rivers are not expected to approach flood stage. There is some concern that the Skokomish River in Mason County could approach flood stage. We will continue to monitor this situation.

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.
