Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 317 AM PST Wed Mar 3 2021

SYNOPSIS. No major changes to the forecast have been made. We still anticipate mostly dry and fairly warm conditions until Thursday. Rain will be moving into the area later Thursday and we are expected to remain in a fairly wet pattern through the beginning of next week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Today will be the best day for the sunshine, with clouds expected to continue to thin out through the day. Some areas my be waking up to some patchy fog but that too will be mixing out as the sunrises.

Thursday will be the day of change. While it is still forecasted to be the warmest day of the week, with highs in the upper 50s and possibly low 60s, rain will be moving into the area. Rain will likely begin near the coast Thursday afternoon, and will slowly progress its way inland through the rest of the day. The bulk of the rainfall will be near the coast as well as over the Olympics. With 1-2 inches expected at lower elevations and 2-4 inches higher up falling by Friday night. For the more inland locations (east of the Puget Sound and Olympia southward) we expect less than an inch to fall during this same time period.

Snow levels are expected to be around 4000 feet over the Olympics so the highest rainfall rates and amounts will be in the form of snow, which will keep the potential for flooding and run off down. That said the flood prone Skokomish River is still forecasted to rise above flood stage.

As the cold front associated with this rainfall moves in there is the potential for some thunderstorms to form. However, this will be somewhat dependent on how warm the area gets before the front moves in. As it stands right now, models are certainly suggesting that their is enough wind shear and CAPE (at least for W WA standards) for these more convective cells to form. At this time we do not have enough confidence to put thunder in the weather grids as it will be heavily dependent on how much day time heating occurs.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Western Washington is expected to remain in this unsettled weather pattern through the early parts of next week. With moisture continued to be funneled in to the area by a weak atmospheric river, expect periods of lowland rain and mountain snow. This is not expected to be like the AR events we saw this past winter. Precipitation will be off and on and will be fairly light. Even up in the mountains snowfall totals for Saturday through Tuesday are expected to be less than 5 inches at the Cascade passes. The take home message will that it will be a damp and unsettled pattern, but no major impacts are expected at this time.

Butwin

AVIATION. Southwesterly flow aloft into Thursday with an upper level ridge to the east and a frontal system stalled well offshore. Light flow in the lower levels through tonight with increasing offshore flow Thursday.

Just some mid and high level clouds for the interior today and tonight. Ceilings near 4000 feet along the coast. Patchy fog with visibility 1-3sm over the Southwest Interior and the Kitsap peninsula until 18z.

KSEA . Just some mid and high level clouds today and tonight. Variable winds 6 knots or less.

Felton

MARINE. Weak high pressure over the waters today. A warm front will brush the area tonight. A vigorous cold front will arrive later Thursday and slowly move through the waters Friday. A 1004 mb surface low will move onshore near Cape Flattery Saturday morning.

Small craft advisory winds over the coastal waters will increase to gale force winds Thursday with the gales continuing into Thursday night. Small craft advisory winds also developing at the entrances to the Strait, Admiralty Inlet and over the Northern Inland Waters Thursday continuing into Thursday night. Small craft advisory winds over most of the waters Friday.

HYDROLOGY. An atmospheric river is expected to affect Western Washington late Thursday night through Saturday. At this time, several limiting factors will keep the flood threat isolated to the Skokomish River basin during this timeframe. As a result a hydrologic outlook has been issued for Mason County.

1) Snow levels will only rise to 4000 to 5000 feet across the Olympic Peninsula, limiting rainfall efficiency.

2) Event duration. The AR will remain pointed at the Olympic Peninsula for ~24-36 hours at the most. Rainfall amounts will generally range from 1 to 2 inches across most locations, with higher amounts to 3 inches in the higher elevations of the Olympics.

These factors coupled with a mostly dry week will limit the flooding potential across the region. An additional system will bring additional rainfall to Western Washington Sunday through early next week.
