SYNOPSIS High pressure will build into region today for dry and seasonably cool conditions into Friday. The ridge will weaken over the weekend and allow for an increasing chance of precipitation.

Unsettled conditions will persist into early next week with snow levels falling to some mountain passes.

SHORT TERM TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY Upper level ridging continues to build into the region this morning. Increasing low level northerly flow through Puget Sound appears to be keeping fog formation in check to some degree with dense fog found in the typical spots of the south Sound and Southwest Interior. The pattern remains fairly static through Thursday with areas of night and morning fog, afternoon sun, and seasonable temperatures. The ridge begins to flatten on Friday in response to a system moving into British Columbia. This will likely spread some high and mid level clouds across the region and turn the low level flow weakly onshore.

LONG TERM SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY The weekend begins with flat ridging and zonal flow aloft over Western Washington. Most areas should begin Saturday on the dry side, but some precipitation may spread southward across the northern half of the forecast area late in the day. Deterministic model runs as well as the ensemble means of the GFS, ECMWF, and Canadian all remain in good agreement with some precipitation across the entire area on Sunday. PoPs were boosted to likely for most of the region for that period.

A series of fairly quick moving systems look to impact the area early next week. Timing them would be a challenge at this stage.

However, ensemble means agree on lowering heights and 850 millibar temperatures falling below 0 C for an extended period of time.

This should bring snow levels down to at least some of the passes and will need to be watched for potential travel impacts in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. 27

AVIATION High pressure will build into the area with northerly flow aloft. Patchy fog has formed across portions of the southwest interior and around the central and south Sound. Improvement expected later this morning with clear skies for the remainder of the day. Additional fog development again tonight into Thursday morning.

KSEA... MostlyVFR conditions today with clear skies though could see a brief period of MVFR this morning with patchy low clouds. Current trends would suggest LIFR fog stays out of the terminal but will continue to monitor. Northerly winds 4 to 8 kts.

CEO

MARINE High pressure over the offshore waters will remain the dominant influence over the region the latter half of the work week. A small craft advisory is in effect for the coastal waters for seas 10 to 12 feet this morning. Expect seas to gradually subside to below 10 feet by the late morning hours. Small craft northerlies remain possible for the inland waters through the early morning. Offshore flow will then persist into Friday, before the next system arrives over the weekend. 14

HYDROLOGY River flooding not expected for the next 7 days.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
