Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 310 AM PDT Fri Sep 17 2021

SYNOPSIS. A strong frontal system will move through Western Washington today with active weather expected throughout the weekend. High rainfall amounts and windy conditions will be the primary concerns. Conditions will quiet down for the early portion of next week. Another weather system is expected mid week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Current satellite imagery shows plenty of clouds pushing into the area ahead of the strong frontal system expected for today. Matching radar showing echoes stretching inland as far as Puget Sound . however only obs along the coast showing precip at this time.

Models and ensembles remain in good agreement for the short term, the front will slowly make its way through the area today, crossing the Cascades into E WA late tonight/early Saturday. The associated large upper trough will follow right behind keeping the area wet with showers as well as introducing some instability for some thunder potential. This trough ejects from the area by Sunday afternoon, however enough moisture and instability linger to keep conditions wet for the remainder of the weekend. High temps during this period will cool . today being the warmest with highs in the mid to upper 60s, Saturday on average 3-5 degrees cooler then low 60s area-wide on Sunday. For details on the impacts from this system, read on to the elements listed below:

Winds: Southerly winds increasing throughout the day, peaking in the late afternoon/early evening hours. The windiest spots still expected to be the coast, San Juan Islands, Island County, as well as Western Whatcom and Skagit Counties. These locations likely to see sustained speeds of 25-35 mph with gusts 40-50 mph, particularly adjacent to the waters. As such, inherited Wind Advisory still looks on track and will remain unaltered. Winds inland will be significantly less than directly near the waters, with sustained speeds 15-25 mph and gusts 25-35 mph. It is worth noting that as trees still have their leaves and being weak from the summer heat and lack of moisture, some tree damage and power outages in the region will be possible. Once the front passes tonight, winds will gradually ease but breezy conditions are expected on Saturday.

Precipitation: Rain will continue to move inland as already mentioned above. The coast and remainder of the Olympic Peninsula will likely see rain throughout the morning while locations east of the Sound may see some rain start up in the afternoon, but best chances will hold off until late this afternoon/early this evening. Rainfall intensity will initially be light, but is expected to pick up as the front moves through. In general 1-2 inches is expected to fall between Friday and Sunday with the majority falling on Friday and early Saturday. As usual the coast and mountains will see higher rainfall amounts with 2-4 inches and 4-6 inches respectively. With soils being so dry and compact there will be a bit of a delay in water being soaked up by the ground. As a result, ponding of water is possible especially at the start of the heaviest rain. Urban flooding may also be a concern if storm drains are not cleared out or become blocked due to debris created from the winds. No river flooding is expected, see hydrology section below for more details. Snow levels today will not be much of an issue today, being well above 10,000 feet. With frontal passage however, they are expected to fall to around 6000 feet by Saturday, allowing for snowfall and accumulation on the higher ridgetops within the CWA.

Thunderstorms: Dynamics do not really seem to line up well for any thunder as the front moves through today . instead waiting for the parent trough to start kicking up some instability. Thus, no expectation for thunderstorms today, however a slight chance is still expected for Saturday and even into Sunday as the trough finally makes its way out of the area. Lightning, brief heavy rain, small hail and gusty winds are all possible with any storms that do develop.

All in all, a very active weekend made seemingly even more so given the dry summer W WA is coming out of. 18

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Generally dry conditions will start off the week as an upper level ridge builds over the area Monday and Tuesday. Deterministic models disagree on the amplitude of the ridge, thus allowing ensembles to latch onto the prospect of slight chance PoPs being possible for the northern portions of the CWA. The ridge axis moves east of the Cascades midday Tuesday allowing the feature to continue to be the main influence on W WA weather at least into Tuesday evening. Some disagreement on how quickly the next system enters, but looking for some chance PoPs over the area for Wednesday as a weaker front pushes through . dissipating as it moves eastward. Thursday looks to be a return to dry conditions. 18

AVIATION. A vigorous frontal system will move through Western Washington today and tonight. Cigs and vsby will drop as the rain moves ashore this morning--especially along the coast, over the Olympic Peninsula, and north of Seattle. For many areas there will be a lull in the rain between the warm front and the cold front this afternoon--but it will be windy in the warm sector. The windy weather will occur in the normal windier spots for which there are wind advisories. The cold front arrives this evening with poor vsby and low cigs in the heavier rain. The mountains and foothills will become obscured pretty quickly today in the warm front and conditions will drop again later today with the cold front with widespread MVFR and areas of IFR conditions and layers of merging layers of frontal clouds. 19

KSEA . Occasional light rain today with breezy southerly wind. The poorest vsby and lowest cigs will be this evening with the cold front passage.

MARINE. Gale warnings are up for the typically windier areas like the coastal and northern waters--including the Admiralty Inlet area as a vigorous frontal system moves through the area today and tonight. A trough will move ashore over the weekend with onshore flow easing as high pressure builds into the area Monday and Tuesday. A cold front will reach the area around daybreak Wednesday but it will likely be much weaker than today's system. 19
