Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 227 PM PST Fri Dec 6 2019

SYNOPSIS. A weak front will spread rain across Western Washington this evening through Saturday morning. The low will move east of the area Saturday night. An upper level ridge will build offshore Sunday for dry weather through early Tuesday. The next system should slide through later on Tuesday with unsettled conditions persisting thereafter.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. Area of rainfall associated with the frontal system offshore looks to be slightly ahead of schedule with light rain reaching much of the Puget Sound area before nightfall. More recent model runs have stepped up QPF a bit from what they showed previously with a half inch or more of rain possible by midday Saturday around Puget Sound. Despite a quick shot of QPF, snow levels remain high enough to preclude any snowfall causing travel issues over the passes. Shower activity should decrease Saturday afternoon and evening then a drying trend begins on Sunday as an upper ridge begins to build into the region. It will likely remain rather murky on Sunday with abundant low level moisture in place and nearly flat surface gradients making it slow to improve.

Shortwave upper ridging shifts eastward across the region later Monday into Monday night. Low level flow attempts to go weakly offshore, but remains pretty light. Stratus and/fog could be an issue on Monday with better chances for some weak December sun found in the mountains or near the coast.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. A weakening front is slated to arrive on Tuesday. It continues to look fairly inconsequential, but it does open to the door for a potentially more active period for the later half of next week. Deterministic model runs and ensembles still point toward a series of systems reaching the area with lower heights . and more importantly . lower snow levels. 27

AVIATION. A frontal system will continue to shift over Western Washington through the evening with cigs thickening up and rain spreading inland. The air mass will moisten up with lowering cigs tonight through Saturday morning. Southwest flow aloft.

KSEA . Conditions should deteriorate to MVFR overnight with this frontal system. A southeast breeze up to 10 kt will become light and variable Saturday morning.

MARINE. A frontal system will give southeasterly flow over the waters through this evening and then winds will become fairly light over the weekend as the low pressure area fills. The next front will approach the area on Tuesday with southeasterly flow again ahead of the front--that front looks similar without any kinds of a westerly push behind it as it fizzles out over the area.

HYDROLOGY. River flooding not expected in the next 7 days, but a more active pattern during the tail end of the forecast period Thursday and beyond will lead rising river levels and will bear watching.

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.
