Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 845 AM PDT Sat Mar 28 2020

SYNOPSIS. Cloudy conditions and periods of rain are expected in the lowlands through early next week. Moderate to heavy mountain snow and gusty winds will be possible Sunday night into Monday as a weather system pushes through the region. Warming and drying conditions are expected during the second half of the week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. There are no updates this morning as the radars shows areas of precip. Periods of light rain will continue today through Sunday before briefly tapering off Sunday afternoon. Little in the way of impacts are expected during this period. Snow levels will hover around 4000-4500 feet today and drop to 3200-4000 feet Sunday, with slow accumulations possible.

The headline through the short term is a somewhat stronger system sliding down from the Gulf of Alaska, bringing a glancing blow to the Pacific Northwest. This will result in a period of gusty winds, heavier rainfall, and moderate to heavy mountain snow between Sunday night and Monday, with conditions improving Tuesday. Winds will be strongest along the coast as well as near the water from Everett northward. At this time it appears that winds along the immediate coast in these areas could see gusts approaching 45 MPH, with areas inland seeing gusts generally between 20 and 30 MPH. Rainfall amounts will remain below thresholds where flooding would be a significant concern, however snowfall could become a concern in the mountains. Snow levels will drop to 2200-3000 feet on Monday and snowfall rates may increase to around 1 inch per hour at times, particularly Monday morning. It seems likely that winter weather highlights will be needed for this event as impacts will be possible across the mountain passes. Conditions will begin to improve Tuesday, with precipitation tapering off through the day.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. General consensus for the long term period is for warming and drying conditions. Temperatures in the lowlands could rise to the upper 50s to around 60 by this weekend, lasting into the early part of the following week. -Wolcott-

AVIATION. Moist westerly flow aloft continues across the region as a series of disturbance cross the Pacific Northwest today and tonight. Expect mostly MVFR ceilings through the period with local IFR possible at times as heavier areas of rain develop. Southerly surface winds persist across much of the today, though shift to become southwesterly possible at some sites in between disturbance.

KSEA . High MVFR to low VFR ceilings likely continue through most of the period with rounds of rain, especially this morning through 18z and again this evening after 23z will provide times where cigs are more likely to be lower. Otherwise little change through early Sunday, with a stronger system approaching late Sunday night. Winds remain predominantly southerly today, with speeds increasing to around 12 kt this evening/overnight. Cullen

MARINE. A pair of weak fronts crosses the waters today, with advisory strength southerly winds across most of the area waters ahead of each front. A stronger disturbance reaches the coastal waters late reaches the coastal Sunday, before pushing onshore by early Monday, bringing high end advisory winds and possible gales to much of the waters. Meanwhile, expect seas to build above 10 feet across the coastal waters for the start of the the week, first due to the stronger wind wave component and then remaining elevated with the arrival of a longer period swell. Cullen

HYDROLOGY. River flooding is unlikely for the next 7 days.

SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WA . None. PZ . Small Craft Advisory until 2 PM PDT this afternoon for East Entrance U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca-Northern Inland Waters Including The San Juan Islands.

Small Craft Advisory until 2 AM PDT Sunday for Admiralty Inlet- Puget Sound and Hood Canal.

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.
