Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 357 AM PST Sat Nov 28 2020

SYNOPSIS. Rain and mountain snow tapers off today behind the departing front. Expect generally dry conditions late tonight into Sunday as weak ridging builds over Western Washington. A stronger front follows Monday, with breezy winds and widespread precipitation expected. An upper ridge will then move into the region and remain through much of the week, resulting in mostly dry conditions through much of the week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Last evening's front continues to advance to the east and south of the region early this morning, and it will be mostly clear of the forecast area by 4 AM. Some lingering precipitation remains evident behind the front, both in portions of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and in a weak convergence zone stretching across northern Snohomish/southern Skagit counties. Will need to continue to monitor trends, as some hint in the guidance that light precip will linger in a convergence zone near central Puget Sound through the morning. However, expect a drying trend by afternoon (and sooner elsewhere) as heights begin to rise under a weak upper ridge. Lower stratus remains across the region, but satellite imagery does reveal some clearing upstream to the northwest. Likely will have some lingering low stratus and/or fog early this morning, depending on how much clearing does occur behind the front.

Dry conditions will then continue through the first half of Sunday, with increasing cloud cover and a return of precipitation later Sunday. The leading warm front may bring some light rain to the Olympic Peninsula by afternoon, but most of the moisture will remain offshore until the evening. Ahead of this front, expect to see south or southeast winds to increase across the region. Latest guidance continues to suggest some potential for gusts into the 45-55 mph range near the coast and from northern Whidbey Island north through the San Juan Islands, including western portions of Whatcom and Skagit counties; will continue to monitor the latest trends, and wind advisories may be needed if this forecast remains on track.

The front will push through the area late Sunday night into early Monday, with another round of lowland rain and mountain snow. Snow levels will rise a little bit through the day on Sunday, but the induced offshore flow may help keep snow levels near the passes. Expect snow levels to be in the 3000-4000 ft range early Monday as most of the moisture moves through, with a few inches of snow at Stevens Pass late Sunday night through Monday morning. Steadier precipitation will taper off Monday morning, but a few showers may continue into the afternoon as the upper trough moves across the region. Cullen

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Tuesday will mark the return of dry conditions across most of the region as an upper ridge is likely to build over the Pacific Northwest. A weak front may approach the coast around Thursday, but ensemble guidance continues to suggest this system will split and leave the area mostly dry. Some slight chances PoPs were maintained near the coast with at least a handful of ensemble members indicating some light precipitation is possible. However, this will likely be short-lived, with another dry day expected Friday. Expect that some morning fog or low stratus will develop across the lowlands in this pattern under strengthening inversions. Temperatures look to remain rather steady through the week and remaining near normal in the metro areas (generally upper 40s/around 50 for highs and upper 30s for overnight lows), though areas of fog or stratus that linger could hold daytime temperatures a bit cooler than the current forecast. Cullen

AVIATION. A weak front has just passed through the Western Washington area. This front brought some light rain and lower ceilings to the terminals. Now that the front has passed some light showers are lingering around as well as some fog/mist in areas. It is expected that conditions will go back an forth between IFR and MVFR through the morning. A few localized locations could see LIFR due to extremely low stratus as well as some possible fog. But these low ceilings are expected to be a very localized feature. Additionally, due to the moist environment terminals could experience some off and on drizzle through the morning particularly in the locations of lower clouds (KPWT, KOLM, and maybe KBFI). Overall, a return to VFR is expected to occur for all of Western Washington come this afternoon. Winds will continue to decrease through the morning and afternoon becoming more easterly as the day goes on. Speeds should be between 4-7 knots.

KSEA . MVFR to IFR conditions are expected to continue through this morning as low level moisture aids in keeping cloud decks low. There is the chance of some light rain to be off and on as the front continues to move out of the area. Conditions will be improving through the afternoon with a return to VFR. South winds will turn Easterly throughout the morning and should remain between 3 and 5 knots.

Butwin

MARINE. A small craft advisory is still in effect for the coastal waters due to sea conditions behind the front that moved through the area last night. The 10 ft swells will continue to subside throughout the morning. The next frontal system is expected to start making an impact on the marine waters starting Saturday night. South winds will be picking up throughout the night and by early morning Gale force winds are expected to be over the coastal waters. South winds at 30-35 knots are expected with gusts 35-45 knots. As the front passes through, sea conditions will worsen. Total wave heights will rise from 15 feet Sunday afternoon to near 20 feet come early Monday morning. Due to the rising seas following the front, conditions at Grays Harbor Bar will be rough to severe due to the large waves coming in. Looking at the inland waters, winds are expected to start picking up in the Admiralty Inlet, East Entrance of the Strait as well as the Northern Inland waters starting Sunday morning as the front approaches. Southerly winds will start at Small Craft Advisory Level and will increasing to Gale Sunday afternoon. Once the front passes through the area Monday morning, winds will become westerly. These westerlies will certainly cause SCA with a possibility of Gales through the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Conditions for all the Western Washington Waters will improve Monday night into Tuesday as a ridge builds over the area, brining with it quieter conditions.

HYDROLOGY. No river flooding is expected during the next seven days.
