Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 745 PM PST Mon Feb 24 2020

SYNOPSIS. A generally dry week ahead with the exception of a weak but fast moving system Tuesday. Warmer temperatures for most of Western Washington are expected to start in the wake of this system as high pressure builds off of the coast. A more organized front will approach the area late Friday bringing rain and mountain snow to the region this weekend.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Current satellite shows mid to high level clouds in place over W WA this evening . but not without an isolated break here and there. Short term models suggest that these breaks over the SW interior might allow for some patchy fog development overnight that will need to be monitored. Otherwise . pretty quiet conditions in place over the area with a nice and clear radar.

Another progressive system will bring clouds and a quick shot of rain and light mountain snow to the area Tuesday. A few showers will linger through Tuesday night and into Wednesday as subtle disturbances embedded in the mean quasi-zonal flow traverse the area. Upper level ridging will attempt to build offshore once again late Wednesday into Thursday, yielding drier and warmer conditions to close the period. 18/Pullin

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. From Previous Discussion . General ensemble guidance indicates ridging amplifying ahead of a shortwave trough digging southward out of the Gulf of Alaska. One last day of drier and warm conditions is on tap Friday, with some lowland locales potentially reaching the 60 degree mark for highs. Showers will be on the increase late Friday into Saturday as the frontal system approaches the area. Lowland rain and mountain snow will likely persist into Sunday before a brief break ahead of another approaching system. Early indications are that another system will push into the area to start the work-week next Monday.

Pullin

AVIATION. Northerly flow aloft this evening and tonight before turning more westerly by early Tuesday morning. The air mass remains generally stable. VFR conditions are in place throughout W WA at the time of this writing and will generally remain that way for the next 24 hours. The exceptions to this will be overnight in the SW interior should patchy fog develop which might result in brief MVFR to IFR conditions and over northern terminals Tuesday /such as BLI/ as a weak frontal system passes quickly through the area which may also result in MVFR conditions.

KSEA . Above discussion applies. VFR conditions expected to persist with SCT to BKN conditions around 5000 ft. Surface winds become southeast/east tonight, but remain light. 18

MARINE. Weak high pressure across the region, with easing winds but seas holding on above 10 ft across the coastal waters this evening and tonight before subsiding during the overnight hours. As such . will leave inherited headlines in place with the evening forecast package. Southerly winds increase a bit on Tuesday as a decaying front enters the coastal waters, but widespread small craft advisory strength winds are not expected. Winds remain relatively light and below advisory strength through much of the mid-week period, before increasing again late in the week in advance of the next front. Expect seas to gradually subside below 10 ft by early Tuesday, with another arriving swell possibly building seas back above 10 ft around mid-week. Cullen/18

HYDROLOGY. Flooding is not forecast for the area through the next week. Very light precipitation amounts are expected with the next system tomorrow into Wednesday, with more widespread rain expected late Friday through Sunday. QPF amounts of 1 to 2 inches in the higher terrain with generally less than 1 inch in the lowlands is currently forecast.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
