Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 302 PM PDT Tue Sep 29 2020

SYNOPSIS. Smoke from California fires is making its way into Western Washington. This smoke will mainly be aloft and the air quality index is expected to remain in the good category. The skies are expected to become hazy starting this evening. Overall, the ridge of high pressure should stay in place over the area for the next few days. Expect an unseasonably warm start to October.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. The upper level ridge that has been over us the last few days is expected to remain in place through Friday. At the surface, light offshore flow throughout most of Wednesday. This will keep high temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s for much of the area. The smoke aloft is rather disperse and not within the entire atmospheric column, as a result we do not think this will have a large impact on our high temperatures tomorrow. Surface winds will become more westerly starting Wednesday evening. With the added marine moisture patchy fog is likely for Wednesday into Thursday. This is especially true for the near coastal areas. While that upper level ridge stays in place, the onshore surface flow may bring in a few more clouds and lower the high temperatures a few degrees. However, the high temperatures are still expected to be around 10 degrees higher than the normal for the first of October. The axis of the ridge will begin to move eastward by Friday, but with offshore flow, mostly clear skies and warm temperatures will continue for the start of the weekend.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. A small upper level disturbance will be moving through the area on Saturday into Sunday. This will bring some cloudier skies and more seasonable temperatures by Sunday. No precipitation is expected for this weekend. After that shortwave passes, another ridge of high pressure will build over the area. Meaning another slight warmup for the start of the week.

Butwin

AVIATION. An upper level ridge will continue to reside across the Pacific Northwest through the TAF period. Winds aloft are westerly, while offshore flow continues in the low levels. Satellite imagery currently shows clear skies across the region, with some smoke from the northern California wildfires starting to make its way towards the southern Washington coast. Smoke will continue to make its way northward into the region this evening and into Wednesday, however is expected remain aloft, so do not expect any significant visibility reductions near the surface for area terminals. Main impact of the smoke will be the potential a 5000-7000 ft ceiling spreading across the region this evening.

KSEA . VFR conditions. N/NE winds will continue at 12 knots or less through this evening before becoming light and variable overnight.

Borth

MARINE. Offshore flow will continue this afternoon and evening as low pressure at the surface resides along the Washington coast and high pressure persists across the Intermountain West. Flow will then gradually transition onshore through the day Wednesday as high pressure returns and resides just offshore. This pattern looks to remain in place through the remainder of the week, allowing for stratus to return to the coastal waters and for weak diurnal pushes to occur down the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Satellite imagery has indicated that smoke from the northern California wildfires has started to advect its way northward today. Expect smoke to make its way across the coastal waters and then gradually move inland across area waters into Wednesday. Smoke will remain aloft, so do not expect any reduction in visibilities across area waters.

Wave heights along the coastal waters will continue to subside to 5 feet into Wednesday, before increasing to 7 to 9 feet again by Thursday.

Borth

FIRE WEATHER. With a very persistent ridge over Washington, warmer than normal temperatures and dry conditions are expected for the next 7 days. With the wetting rain we received last week, and minimum relative humidity values continuing to increase throughout the period, fire weather concerns are low.

Butwin

HYDROLOGY. No flooding is expected on area rivers through the next 7 days.

SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WA . None. PZ .
