Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 844 PM PDT Fri Jul 10 2020

UPDATE. The previous forecast remains on track and no changes are planned for this evening.

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 142 PM PDT Fri Jul 10 2020/

SYNOPSIS . Dry weather will prevail tonight. A weak cold front will bring scattered showers mainly Saturday night into Sunday. Dry and seasonable weather expected for early next week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/ . Ridging over the Pac NW brings a dry and stable day today with stratus clouds breaking up in the interior. Temperatures were mostly in the 60s with a few low 70s expected this afternoon. Onshore flow will bring stratus clouds inland once again overnight.

The ridge shifts east toward the Rockies on Saturday while a trough digs offshore. A weak cold front will bring showers to the coast by the afternoon with showers spreading to the interior mainly during the evening.

We'll remain in post-frontal onshore flow Saturday night into Sunday for additional showers across the region. Showers associated with a convergence zone are likely over the north sound. Drier, more stable conditions are expected Sunday evening as the trough exits and onshore flow weakens.

Onshore flow continues for Monday for a more typical mid-July weather - morning clouds and afternoon sunbreaks. Highs in the 70s interior and 60s coast. 33

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/ . A ridge remains offshore next week with west to northwest flow over WA. At the surface, the flow remains onshore with temperatures trending close to normal. A weak system may clip us Tuesday night or Wednesday for scattered showers over western WA. A weak disturbance may bring additional showers through the end of the week but confidence is low. 33

AVIATION . VFR conditions expected through the remainder of the evening hours. Expect MVFR to high end IFR CIGs to develop along the outer coast, with patchy MVFR CIGs possible in the Puget Sound region early Saturday morning. Low CIGs will quickly mix out in the Puget Sound region where the marine layer will be fairly shallow, with the outer coast clearing by Saturday afternoon. Increasing clouds through the day Saturday, with showers spreading from west to east late in the period. Brief reductions in vsbys will be possible under the heaviest showers, with CIGs lowering to MVFR once again. Generally light and variable winds overnight becoming southwesterly Saturday. Speeds around 10 knots with occasional higher gusts possible.

KSEA . VFR thru the evening and into the overnight hours. A brief period of MVFR CIGS will be possible overnight in the Puget SOund region prior to daybreak, but confidence remains low in this occuring over the terminal at this time. Any stratus that does develop will quickly mix out after daybreak, with VFR conditions prevailing. Southwesterly winds will prevail at speeds around 10 knots and periodic higher gusts during the afternoon. Increasing chances for -SHRA late in the period with CIGs gradually lowering as a frontal system approaches from the west.

Pullin

MARINE . Onshore flow will remain in place through the weekend with a low pressure system pushing across the coastal and inland waters Saturday into Saturday night. Nocturnal westerly pushes down the Strait of Juan de Fuca will persist into early next week with advisory level winds possible each night.

Offshore, seas will remain around 4 to 5 feet through the weekend with a southwesterly swell persisting into early next week.

Pullin

HYDROLOGY . The daily hydrology discussion has ended until the start of the next rainy season; it will only be updated as needed until then.

SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WA . None. PZ . Small Craft Advisory until 3 AM PDT Saturday for Central U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca-East Entrance U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca.

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.
