Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 345 PM PST Fri Mar 5 2021

SYNOPSIS. An upper trough will slide east across the area tonight. Another front will move through Sunday as an upper low slides south along the west coast. Drier weather Monday into next week as the bulk of the energy with the upper low slides into California. Light precipitation possible Thursday as a system approaches the area.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. The bulk of the steady precipitation has slid east of the area this afternoon with showers around over the Olympics and into the Pacific. A band of heavier rain showers across the Puget Sound will slide east this afternoon. Small hail, gusty winds, and lightning is possible with this activity. Otherwise, showers will be around tonight into Saturday as an upper trough moves through, however, most locations will likely be drier for most of the time. Temperatures this afternoon in the upper 40s to low 50s.

The next round of steadier precipitation will move through Saturday night into Sunday morning as a front weakens over the area with an upper low located over the NE Pacific. The bulk of the energy with this system will slide south of the area Sunday into Monday with most precipitation tapering off by Sunday night. Sunday may feature the best chance for any convection, mainly along coastal areas, with a bit more instability located over these areas. Some moisture may be around into Monday, but most guidance highlights the coast and areas of the Olympic Peninsula for any rain through Monday. Temperatures will be a bit cooler over the weekend into early next week with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Mainly dry weather Tuesday and Wednesday for the area, though some guidance suggests light precipitation may be around in spots Tuesday with the upper low south of the area. The next system looks to approach the area on Thursday, though there is some differences in guidance. ECMWF ensembles highlight a bit more ridging on Thursday compared to other guidance, which would keep for a drier forecast. Either way, some light precipitation may be around Thursday with perhaps the better chance for rain Friday into the weekend. Morning temperatures may be on the cooler side with lows in the mid to upper 30s through Wednesday, highs in the low to mid 50s through the week. JD

AVIATION. Rain has turned more showery across the area this afternoon in the wake of a frontal system that moved through the region this morning. Southwesterly winds will persist aloft as upper level troughing remains the dominant influence across the northeastern Pacific and the Pacific Northwest. Ceilings and visibilities have rebounded back to VFR at most area TAF sites, however MVFR and IFR conditions will still be possible in heavier showers. Thunderstorms will be possible for terminals through this evening as the airmass becomes increasingly unstable in the post-frontal airmass. Surface winds have started to ease across the area this afternoon, but will continue to remain breezy through this evening, especially in heavier showers and any thunderstorms that do develop along the coast.

KSEA . Southerly winds, generally between 8-15 knots. Winds have started to ease this afternoon and will continue to ease into this evening. Showers will be possible vicinity of the terminal through the evening. Conditions expected to be primarily VFR, but could drop to MVFR or even IFR should any heavier showers pass across the terminal. 14

MARINE. Elevated winds and seas will continue across area waters into Saturday in the wake of a vigorous cold front. Gusty winds have started to ease this afternoon, however will remain rather breezy through the evening before subsiding.

Meanwhile, offshore swells remain elevated, primarily between 10-13 feet for the nearshore waters and 13-19 feet across the offshore waters this afternoon. Seas will gradually subside late tonight into Saturday, but are expected to remain above 10 feet, before another large swell train (18-21 feet) arrives in the region by Sunday afternoon.

A number of marine headlines continue for area waters this afternoon and into this evening--including offshore gale warnings and small craft advisories for the majority of the inland waters (except the Northern Interior and the Eastern Strait where a gale warning remains in effect). Will see a brief break in the winds on Saturday, before another round of marine headlines with the next system moving into the region Saturday night into Sunday. 14

HYDROLOGY. Steady rain has become scattered showers with activity into Saturday. Although the Skokomish River continues to rise, the heaviest rainfall has ended, and other rivers in the basin have crested. The Flash Flood Watch has been ended for Mason County. Rainfall will continue periodically through the weekend, however river flooding is not expected. JD
