Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 220 AM PDT Wed Apr 21 2021

SYNOPSIS. Skies are clear across much of Western Washington early this morning--except for low clouds and fog along the coast and in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. An upper trough will brush the area tonight and Thursday--low level onshore flow and clouds will increase. Thursday and Friday will be cooler with mostly cloudy skies. A frontal system will arrive Saturday and a trough will move ashore on Sunday. Another weather system will reach the area around the middle of next week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Coastal marine stratus and fog are on the coast and in the Strait of Juan de Fuca with clear skies inland. Today should be the last sunny warm day and temps across the interior of Western Washington will drop ten degrees Thursday with an increase in clouds Thursday through Friday. After a final warm day today for the interior of Western Washington, highs will range from the mid and upper 50s near the water to the lower 60s inland Thursday and Friday with lows in the 40s under mostly cloudy skies. 19

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. a frontal system will bring rain back into the area for the end of the week with the precip turning showery on Sunday as the upper trough moves ashore. Snow will return to the higher elevations of the mountains and temps will cool some more--highs temps should mainly be in the mid and upper 50s into early next week. Tuesday might not be too dreary a day as a weak transitory ridge reaches the area--but it will be short-lived and give way to another weather system for the middle of next week. 19

AVIATION. High pressure continues aloft, with slightly stronger onshore flow near the surface. In general, clear skies prevail for all TAF sites around and east of Puget Sound (tho will monitor KPAE and KPWT for marine layer intrusion), with a marine stratus layer present at KHQM and anticipated to affect KCLM and KOLM. For TAF sites either currently affected by or expected to be affected by the marine layer, LIFR-IFR ceilings are likely, with visibility potentially slightly reduced to MVFR. The marine layer is not expected to make it past Puget Sound this morning (although it will for Thursday morning) so will just have some passing high clouds at times today for those TAF sites. Marine layer will retreat westward after daybreak, again becoming confined to the Coast this afternoon. Will likely see an increase in high level cloud cover later this afternoon and evening for a period of time, ahead of weather system in BC. Winds light and variable early this morning will become W/SW 5-10kts.

KSEA . VFR with some passing high clouds, likely becoming a ceiling later in the day. Marine stratus likely to bring MVFR ceilings early Thursday morning. Winds NE this morning, becoming more W/SW in the 10AM-12PM timeframe around 5-6kts, increasing to near 10kts this afternoon.

Kovacik

MARINE. Surface high pressure influence continues over W WA early this morning, allowing for slightly stronger onshore flow than the previous several days. As such, the marine stratus layer has been able to blanket the Coast and Inner Coastal Waters early this morning, as well as penetrate the Strait of Juan de Fuca. As of 09z this morning, stratus was detected all the way into northern portions of Puget Sound and over Admiralty Inlet. Low visibility may accompany these low clouds through mid-morning in spots. Marine stratus will then retreat back to the immediate Coast this afternoon, giving way to mostly sunny skies for all waters outside of the Inner Coastal Waters and perhaps the west entrance to the Strait. A stronger marine push is expected tonight and Thursday morning, which should blanket all waters in low clouds.

Small Craft Advisory level winds across the Central and Eastern Strait appear to have largely subsided as of 2AM this morning, so will allow the headline to drop. Another westerly push is expected again this evening, this one a tad stronger than this most recent one. Have issued another Small Craft Advisory to account for this. Westerly pushes of SCA winds through the Strait will likely be a theme each evening into at least the weekend. Elsewhere, a Small Craft Advisory will remain in place for the Outer Coastal Waters through Thursday afternoon, with the Inner Coastal Waters joining in from 11PM tonight through 11AM Thursday.

Winds likely to be breezy out of the South Friday ahead of a pattern change/return to unsettled conditions. Winds will likely remain breezy at times through the weekend as several weather systems affect the area. A potentially stronger front moves in on Tuesday. Headlines will likely be necessary this weekend and through early next week.

Seas may approach 10ft over the Outer Coastal Waters Thursday morning, but will likely coincide with SCA winds, so headlines will already be out.

Kovacik

FIRE WEATHER. With the exception of the coastal stratus this morning, a dry air mass remains over the area but today will be the last warm day across the interior of Western Wa with the increase in onshore flow tonight and Thursday. A frontal system arrives Friday night and Saturday followed by the upper trough Sunday for much more typical spring weather across the region. 19
