Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 857 PM PDT Fri Sep 22 2023

SYNOPSIS
Upper level troughing building over the NE Pacific will kickstart an extended period of wet weather. Rain chances return on Saturday as a weak front enters followed by additional disturbances into the upcoming week. Fall-like temperatures are expected.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/
Forecast remains largely on track tonight. A weak system will move into the region, bringing light rain to western Washington starting early Saturday.
Clouds ahead of the system have already started to push inland along portions of the coast tonight. The remainder of the previous discussion follows below, with updates made to the aviation and marine sections. 14

For tonight, upper-level troughing will begin to progress into the region. Deterministic guidance is showing a subtle shortwave sweeping across the area late overnight. Mostly dry conditions are expected tonight but a weak front looks to draw near the coast into the early morning hours on Saturday with PoPs increasing.
Overnight lows are forecasted to be in the mid 40s to mid 50s.

As alluded to, a weak front is on tap to enter on Saturday. Light widespread rain is in the forecast along with much cooler temperatures, right on cue for the first day of fall. Widespread 60s are expected, anywhere from 8-12 degrees cooler than the previous day. Rain will break into showers Saturday evening before conditions gradually dry out briefly. Overnight lows are again to be in the 40s and 50s.

After somewhat of a reprieve expected late Saturday night into early Sunday, more rain is inbound. A deep low center over the NE Pacific will scoop up copious amounts of moisture under strong southwesterly flow. Here, an atmospheric river is on track to make landfall along the WA/OR coast by Sunday evening, spreading further inland by Monday morning. Ensemble and deterministic guidance shows anomalously high PWAT values >1.00" during this time. Widespread rainfall is forecasted to begin and continue well into Monday. Current 24-hr rainfall forecast for Monday includes 1-3" for the coast and Olympics. 0.5-1.0" throughout the interior lowlands with values in the lower end influenced by potential rain shadowing. 1-2" is in the forecast for the Cascades. Note, confidence in exact totals is still on the lower end at this time as the forecast could change in subsequent updates. However, confidence still remains high on this being the first prolonged moderate to heavy rainfall event in a while.
Breezy conditions are also in the forecast, particularly for the coast with gusts upwards of 35-45 mph beginning Sunday night through Monday.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
Rain chances will remain in the forecast through much of the upcoming week. NBM v4.1 has anywhere between 85-95% chance of the coast seeing rainfall >1.0" for a 24-hr period ending 5 AM Wednesday morning. 50-70% for much of the Cascades and 25-45% through the lowlands. Troughing will begin to push inland by Wednesday. However, ensemble guidance remains in disagreement on the upper-level pattern going into Thursday/Friday. Nevertheless showery and cool conditions are favorable to remain.

AVIATION
Light westerly flow aloft continues with a shift to southerly flow expected overnight. This will maintain generally VFR conditions under mostly clear skies for the interior this evening. Increasing mid cloud deck will move over the region tonight by 09z ahead of an approaching front. This will bring some lower MVFR to IFR ceilings to the coast early evening. Light rain will begin to spread across the region by 14z at the coast and far north, and more solidly across the Puget Sound terminals later in the morning, with additional rain through the day.

KSEA...VFR evening with clear skies and light southwesterly winds. Increasing mid-level clouds with southerly winds increasing to 10 kt by 16z. MVFR ceilings increasingly likely from 18z onward through the period with light rain at times. Cullen

MARINE
A very strong low pressure system will rapidly intensify and move into the area Sunday into Monday. NBM ensemble guidance has continue to trend stronger with winds, with a 80-95% chance of gale force sustained winds and a 55-75% chance of storm force gusts across the outer coastal waters for Sunday night into early Monday morning. Given this trend, have issued a Storm Watch for the outer coastal waters for the aforementioned period, and a Gale Watch for the inner coastal waters. Additionally, gales likely develop in the Strait of Juan de Fuca as the strong pressure gradient develops across the strait. Gales are likely to continue across the coastal waters into Monday. Winds should ease up beginning Tuesday and remain below thresholds through next week.

Seas will begin to build tomorrow to 5 to 7 ft Sunday with the first frontal system, then building Sunday night into Monday up to 15-18 ft, first for the outer waters Monday then reaching the coastline Tuesday. Steep waves will also develop across Grays Harbor bar with a small craft advisory also issued there. LH/12
