Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 920 AM PDT Fri Apr 12 2024

SYNOPSIS
Weak high pressure will begin to build over the region today and last throughout the weekend, bringing with it a warming and drying trend. Upper-level troughing returns on Monday with showers and cooler temps. This will only be a brief interlude as upper level ridging is expected to return for much of next week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
Upper level low pressure continues to sink southward today, dragging its associated moisture with it. While this circulation will continue to push high clouds over the area
as seen on current satellite
the influence of a building weak upper level ridge will remain the dominant weather feature for today and into the weekend. Going back to current satellite, still some lingering low clouds present...mainly along the lowlands of the eastern Sound, along the Strait, in the SW interior and along the central coast. Continued gradual improvement is expected in these spots which should reveal at least partly sunny skies for the afternoon.

As already mentioned, weak upper level ridging will be the main headline for the short term, not only making for dry conditions but also with warmer daytime highs. Mid 50s to around 60 expected in the interior lowlands today then warming even further to the lower to mid 60s for Saturday. A little cooling is expected Sunday ahead of the next frontal system...most notably along the coast where temps will cool back into the mid to upper 50s while the interior remains warm with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Inherited forecast looks on track given the benign weather pattern and as such see no need for any morning updates at this time.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
From Previous Discussion...A pattern change will arrive on Monday because of course, Monday.
Temperatures are expected to drop several degrees as upper-level troughing brings the next round of widespread precipitation and lower snow levels around 2,000 ft. A few showers are slated to remain on Tuesday but things may trend drier again towards midweek.
Deterministic guidance indicates a ridge amplifying during this time but questions remain on its exact location and intensity.
Nevertheless, the brief cool down to start the next may not last too long.

AVIATION
Southwesterly flow aloft as an upper-level trough moves southward into California. A mixed bag of ceilings this morning, primarily MVFR with localized IFR at times with significant low level moisture following the frontal passage last night. Shower activity has largely ended, and conditions should stay dry through the TAF period. Low ceilings should scatter out between 18-21Z, leaving conditions VFR with mostly clear skies with high clouds exiting this evening. Winds are northerly, increasing to 8-12 kt today, easing a bit tonight. Some low stratus/fog may develop in the most prone regions (PAE, PWT, HQM), but is not expected to be widespread except along the Pacific coast.

KSEA...MVFR to IFR ceilings this morning, improving to VFR between 18-20Z this morning once low stratus evaporates. VFR conditions with decreasing clouds for the remainder of the TAF period. Surface winds northerly 8 to 12 kt through today, easing somewhat tonight.

LH

MARINE
High pressure will continue to build over the waters today with seas around 6 to 8 ft. High pressure will increase into Saturday with offshore north winds reaching 15 to 25 kt as seas increase to 8 to 11 ft. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the coastal waters from 10-60 NM out. The gradient will intensify even more on Sunday as a frontal boundary slides southward, causing a sharp increase in onshore flow. This will likely lead to additional headlines in the form of small craft advisory level winds for the coastal waters and possible westerly gales in the strait Sunday night. A sustained period of northwest winds over the coastal waters this weekend into early next week is expected generate hazardous seas in the form of short period swell at times.

Surface ridging will gradually rebuild early next week, allowing seas to lessen by Tuesday to 5 to 7 feet with northerly winds over the waters of 10 to 15 kt.
