Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 155 AM PDT Sun Aug 9 2020

SYNOPSIS. A dry and warming trend will commence today through Monday across Western Washington. A weakening frontal system will bring cooling temperatures and isolated showers Tuesday and Wednesday followed by a return to seasonal weather late this week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Drier and warmer weather will return to Western Washington today and will persist into Monday as high pressure builds into the region. The 08Z mesoscale analysis shows a west to east oriented ridge axis draped across the region. Aside from some isolated patchy fog/low stratus in some areas this morning, clear skies will allow for maximum solar heating today. Expect temperatures to rise to around or just above normal for early August this afternoon with readings in the 70s to low 80s inland. More of the same can be expected for Monday as high pressure will remain in place. Highs will likely be a few degrees warmer then, with highs reaching the upper 70s to low 80s once again. Late monday into Tuesday will mark the departure to this warming trend as a weakening cool front will approach the region. Increasing clouds Monday night into Tuesday will yield temperatures decreasing below average again. As far as rainfall is concerned, deterministic and ensemble guidance is favoring lower rain chances for much of the region at this time - thus keeping the highest POPs confined to the northern Cascades at this time given the forecast upper low track. Cooler conditions will persist into the latter half of the week.

Pullin

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. An upper trough will shift through the region Wednesday and Thursday. There might be a few showers during this time but the main impact will be to keep highs slightly below normal and bring clouds at times. Upper heights will gradually rise across the area Friday and Saturday. There will be a corresponding minor warming trend with highs near normal on Friday and slightly above normal on Saturday. It will likely be dry both days but there is enough uncertainty in the ensembles to keep a slight chance of showers in the forecast for now.

Schneider

AVIATION. VFR conditions expected through the period at nearly all TAF sites. A brief period of MVFR CIGs will be possible prior to and just after sunrise at KHQM this morning. Otherwise, FEW clouds AOA 25Kft with a predominantly northerly to westerly wind at all TAF sites. Speeds generally AOB 10kts.

KSEA . VFR conditions expected through the period with a northerly prevailing wind AOB 10 kts.

Pullin

MARINE. Northwesterly flow will persist across the marine areas through at least the middle of the week. Several disturbances in that timeframe will yield increases in winds and seas today and again early this week, with advisory level conditions expected offshore. Swells will remain northwesterly through this timeframe with seas increasing to 8 to 10 feet offshore today and 9 to 11 feet on Monday. In addition, strong nocturnal westerly pushes will yield advisory level conditions in the Strait of Juan de Fuca into at least mid-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.

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.
