Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 825 AM PDT Mon Aug 10 2020

UPDATE. Areas of stratus along the coast this morning and into the Strait of Juan de Fuca and north Puget Sound with a weak marine push overnight. Clear skies otherwise today with temperatures warmer in the upper 70s to mid 80s across the area, cooler along the coast with mid to upper 60s with the morning clouds and some afternoon sunshine.

SYNOPSIS. Dry and warm across Western Washington today. A weak frontal system will bring increased cloud cover and cooler temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday followed by a return to seasonal temperatures late this week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Dry and warm conditions will persist across Western Washington today as the east/west ridge axis at the surface will remain draped across the region. Much like yesterday morning, expect some patchy fog across parts of the area this morning, particularly along coastal locales where a thin layer of moisture exists in the boundary layer underneath a relatively dry mid-level layer (evident on the latest CH-10/7.34 um WV loop). Any fog that does develop will quickly mix out with another day of maximum solar heating expected under mostly clear skies. Expect temperatures to rise into the upper 70s to low 80s across most inland locales. It is important to note that the mid- level ridge axis is oriented to the south this morning, as a shortwave trough will be ejected downstream from an upper low located in the eastern Gulf of Alaska. This will yield increasing clouds across all of Western Washington late this afternoon into Tuesday, with a weak front pushing across the region Tuesday. This will yield cooler temperatures through the end of the period. Temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s expected in most locations Tuesday and Wednesday, with the coolest day of the week on Wednesday. As mentioned last night, guidance continues to trend drier with this feature and it is looking more and more likely that there will be little to no shower activity outside of a few potential sprinkles in the northern Cascades.

Pullin

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. An upper trough over the area will shift inland on Thursday with gradually rising upper heights across the Pacific Northwest on Friday. A few showers could linger over the area, mainly on Thursday, but mostly it looks dry with highs slightly below normal Thursday warming to near normal on Friday.

An upper ridge will cross the area over the weekend. The ridge will not be particularly strong but it should be enough to produce a couple of dry and warm days. Low level onshore flow will continue but turn a bit more northerly which should allow for additional warming. Highs will be mostly in the 70s coast, Strait, and Northwest Interior on Saturday with lower to mid 80s for the interior from about Seattle south. Sunday looks like the warmest day of the week with highs a couple degrees warmer than Saturday.

Schneider

AVIATION. Northwesterly flow aloft this morning becoming more westerly by this afternoon. The atmosphere is dry and generally stable.

Cloud cover over W WA this morning is feast or famine . so to speak . where most interior locations are seeing VFR/clear conditions while locations along the water /coast . Strait and islands/ wrestling with MVFR to IFR conditions. Clouds in these locations are expected to lift and thin out by late morning/early afternoon for VFR conditions area-wide. High clouds will start to move into the area late tonight in advance of passing weather system with marine stratus likely to be an issue for the aforementioned locations near water during the overnight hours.

KSEA . VFR conditions expected through the TAF period. Light and variable wind this morning becoming northerly 7-11 kts. High clouds will gradually filter in through the afternoon with some mid level clouds very late tonight/early Tuesday. 18

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 through Tuesday, with advisory level conditions expected offshore. Swells will remain northwesterly through this timeframe with seas building to 9 to 11 feet on Monday. Seas will gradually decrease through the remainder of the week, with the swell direction becoming southwesterly from Wednesday onward. In addition, strong nocturnal westerly pushes will yield advisory level conditions in the Strait of Juan de Fuca through Wednesday/Thursday. Inherited forecast and headlines look good . so no need for updates with late morning forecast package.

Pullin/18

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
