Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 820 AM PST Sun Jan 26 2020

SYNOPSIS. A front is moving inland and the associated low pressure center is weakening as it moves into southern British Columbia this morning. A trough will move through the area this evening. A parade of additional weather systems will affect the region through next week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. So far, the surface low near Vancouver Island this morning hasn't brought with it as much wind as expected. A trough will arrive this evening for another round of precip and breezy weather. A wetter frontal system will arrive Monday afternoon or evening and that front is followed by a low pressure system and quite a bit of shower activity into Tuesday. The 12z GFS has the surface low filling to a 1001mb low just off the north coast around daybreak Tuesday. 19

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/ . Another frontal system moves ashore Wednesday, spreading rain inland throughout the day and into the evening before transitioning to showers. There is another potential break in precip during the overnight hours and into Thursday morning before the next frontal system moves in during the day Thursday. Models are not exactly in sync with the timing of this next system . but ultimately the pattern of weather system . then brief break . then weather system has become etched into memory and as such to see it continue offers no surprise at all. It is worth pointing out that at this point . models do diverge in their solutions as the GFS has the next system crumble apart as it moves over the area while the ECMWF has it producing precip into Saturday. Another thing to keep an eye on in this portion of the extended is that the ECMWF is offering hints at the potential set up of what looks to be something very atmospheric river-like toward the end of the forecast period. The GFS is trying to pick up on this as well . but it does not look as confident as the ECMWF positioning. Still . that is out in the day 7 to 8 time frame . plenty can change from run to run that far out. 18

AVIATION. Strong southwesterly flow aloft easing this afternoon and becoming west overnight into Monday morning. A front moved through the area early this morning with another system arriving late tonight. Ceilings lowering down to around 2000 feet this morning behind the front. Ceilings lifting again this afternoon into the evening hours into VFR before the onset of rain with the next system tonight lowers ceilings back down to MVFR.

KSEA . MVFR ceilings in scattered showers through midday then ceilings improving later in the afternoon back up to 3500-5000 feet. Rain ahead of next system beginning around 04z tonight. Southerly winds 10-15 knots with gusts to 25 knots easing to 8 to 12 knots in the afternoon and evening hours. Felton/27

MARINE. A strong front associated with a 995 mb low moving into Vancouver Island moved through the waters early this morning. Gale force winds are likely for all the waters except the central Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Puget Sound and Hood Canal. Winds easing to small craft over all the waters this afternoon. Another strong system will move through the area tonight keeping small craft advisory winds in the forecast for all the waters. For most of the waters the small craft advisory winds will linger into Monday. Active weather pattern continuing this week with a significant system possible Monday night or Tuesday. Felton


HYDROLOGY. Although there are several weather systems that will move through Western Washington through midweek the pattern is fairly progressive with period of rain turning to scattered showers periodically. The Skokomish river will remain high, probably remaining above flood stage most of the time. Other rivers will be running high but it looks like it will not be until late in the week when more widespread flooding becomes a possibility.

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