SYNOPSIS
Upper-level troughing returns on Monday with showers and cooler temps. Then, ridging will rebound around midweek with the potential for more warmer and drier weather followed by the potential for a weak frontal passage over the weekend.



SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
Near-zonal flow aloft as we're transitioning from weak ridging to upper-level troughing.
The weekend's above normal temperatures and dry weather will come to an end on Monday. The main feature will be convergence zone activity through much of central Puget Sound today and tonight.
However, scattered showers are to also track across western Washington and given current hi-res guidance they appear to be rather hit or miss. Light rainfall amounts are expected but locations in and around the convergence zone could see up to 0.25 to 0.50" in the foothills and higher elevations with locally higher amounts possible. Snow levels will also start off around 3,000 ft before falling to 2,000 ft tonight. With that, a few inches of snow won't be hard to achieve at the passes. Noticeably cooler highs are in the forecast with lower to mid 50s expected with overnight lows in the mid 30s to lower 40s.

Lingering showers and cooler temperatures will linger into Tuesday. However, most showers will be in and around the confines of the mountains given orographic enhancement. But, we'll begin to trend much drier on Wednesday as troughing progresses and upper-level ridging builds over the NE pacific. Because of this, not only will we see drier weather but highs will increase with mid 50s to lower 60s expected.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
Conditions are continuing to trend drier Thursday and Friday. Deterministic guidance continues to hint at a ridge amplifying near the region.
But, questions remain on its exact location and intensity.
Nevertheless, the brief cool down to start the week on Monday may not last too long as temps could possibly top out in the upper 60s on Friday. Ahead, much uncertainty is present this far out, but a weak front could brush the area over the weekend.

AVIATION
Mainly VFR to MVFR with increasing high and mid-level clouds and low stratus over Grays Harbor. Westerly flow aloft as a cold front dig southward across western Washington through the early morning. Ceilings will continue to lower this morning with a 30% chance of MVFR ceilings persisting over the Puget Sound terminals through 20z. Scattered light rain showers and drizzle likely much of the day today and tonight as a convergence zone with enhanced shower activity and brief wind shifts sets up east of the Puget Sound.

KSEA...MVFR conditions with a thickening cloud deck near 2500 ft.
South winds at the surface are favored to shift to the E/NE after 19z as a convergence zone and enhanced shower activity develops. The exact placement of the convergence zone is still uncertain, but models favor the development this afternoon in southern King County/northern Pierce County. Winds may shift more northerly as the track of the convergence boundary shifts north/south. Best timing for this potential northerly wind shift looks to be in the 20-03Z timeframe this afternoon and evening.

Lindeman



MARINE
A cold front continues to dive south across the area waters early Monday morning. Onshore flow continues, with gales through the Central and East Entrance to the Strait of Juan de Fuca until at 3 AM. Small Craft Advisories remain in effect through 11 AM Monday across the coastal waters and West Entrance to the Strait.
Winds will briefly ease through the morning with Gales being downgraded to Small Craft Advisories before they quickly pick up again Monday afternoon. A Gale Warning has been issued for the Central and East Strait along with Admiralty Inlet Monday afternoon through early Monday night, along with a Small Craft Advisory for the West Entrance and northern coastal waters.

Seas from 7 to 9 feet will increase closer to 10 feet Monday morning over the coastal waters before gradually lower back to 7 to 9 feet through the day Monday. Seas continue to lower through the week, trending below 5 feet Thursday and Friday.
