Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 830 PM PDT Thu Jul 9 2020

UPDATE. The forecast remains on track for this evening and no changes are planned to the forecast. Scattered showers continue to develop in the Cascades at this hour. Expect convection to dwindle after sunset with the loss of daytime heating.

Pullin

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 233 PM PDT Thu Jul 9 2020/

SYNOPSIS . Dry weather and slightly warmer temperatures return for Friday into much of Saturday before another weak system brings a chance for showers on Sunday. The start of next work week is looking dry.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/ . This morning's cold front has shifted east of the Cascades this afternoon with just a few post frontal showers lingering across the southwest interior and Kitsap Peninsula. Expect these to continue to diminish this evening. Behind the front, weak high pressure will build into the area for Friday with more zonal flow. After morning clouds, sunshine should return for Friday afternoon and evening with temperatures warming back into the 70s. Dry weather will continue into Saturday with increasing clouds during the day in advance of the next system.

Next trough, associated with an upper level low across the Gulf of Alaska, will swing through Western Washington late Saturday into Sunday. The cold front will weaken substantially as it moves onshore, much like today's front, so shower activity may not be widespread. At this point, looks like highest chances across the Olympic Peninsula and in the interior north of Seattle. Temperatures will cool back down several degrees.

CEO

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/ . Trough departs on Monday with area remaining under the influence of weak high pressure through Tuesday night. This should allow for mostly dry weather but temperatures will remain a few degrees below normal. Ridge breaks down by Wednesday or Thursday with shower chances returning. Still some model differences in timing and strength of additional systems but ensembles agree in overall troughing pattern. This will lead to periodic chances for showers, increased cloud cover, and slightly cooler temperatures.

CEO

AVIATION . VFR conditions through the early overnight hours at all TAF sites except KCLM, where MVFR CIGs will persist. CIGs will lower back down to MVFR overnight as onshore flow brings the next round of marine stratus inland. Stratus should lift by Friday afternoon, yielding mostly sunny skies for the remainder of the day. Winds will be out of the S at 10kts or less thru the period, except W at HQM and CLM 10-15kts and a brief shift to the N at PAE as westerly winds push down the Strait into Puget Sound.

KSEA . VFR thru the evening and into the overnight hours, with a gradual lowering back to MVFR as onshore flow pushes marine stratus inland early Friday. MVFR ceilings will then give way to generally clear skies Friday afternoon. Winds S/SW 10kts or less.

Kovacik/Pullin

MARINE . All waters lie in the wake of a weak frontal boundary this afternoon, with a few light showers still passing across the area, mostly across Puget Sound and into the Northern Inland Waters. Expect most of this activity to wind down this evening, with both winds and waves remaining rather benign into Friday. The only exception will be across the Central and Eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca where gradients behind the front are suggestive of westerly winds meeting small craft advisory level criteria this evening and into the overnight hours with wind waves building to 2-4 ft. This advisory will remain in effect from 5PM this evening thru 3AM Friday.

Onshore flow will continue Friday and through much of next week with the overnight development of marine stratus, especially across the offshore waters. Another frontal system will pass across the area on Sunday, bringing the next round of showers. Winds and waves remain unimpressive overall (less than 20kts, 5ft or less, respectively), with the continued exception of the Central and Eastern Strait where evening/overnight small craft advisory events will remain likely.

Kovacik

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 Friday 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.
