Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 235 AM PDT Sat Aug 8 2020

SYNOPSIS. Following a damp and cloudy start this morning, a dry and warming trend will commence through Monday across Western Washington. Another weak system will bring cooling temperatures and showers Tuesday and Wednesday followed by a return to seasonal weather during the latter part of the week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Post-frontal showers continue to linger across Western Washington at this hour with some pockets of fog being reported in various locations in the Olympic Peninsula, San Juan Islands and into the northern Sound/interior at this hour. Hi-res guidance has showers lingering through much of the morning hours, generally tapering off from west to east. A weak convergence zone is expected across the Puget Sound Region later this morning, ushering in a cool and drizzly start to the weekend. Conditions are expected to clear this afternoon, with partly sunny skies prevailing later this afternoon. Lingering cloud cover will keep temperatures below average today for highs by ~5 or so degrees.

Sunday and Monday will see drier conditions and a warming trend as high pressure noses into the region. Afternoon highs on Sunday will return to normal for early-mid August with low to mid 80s on tap for Monday. This warm up will be short lived, as a an upper level shortwave trough will begin to break down the mid-level ridge axis Monday afternoon and evening. This will yield increasing clouds once again, foreshadowing the change to come on Tuesday.

Pullin

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. An upper trough will move over the area on Tuesday, bringing a few showers and cooling highs to near normal. Another upper trough will shift over the area on Wednesday for more of the same - a few showers and seasonable temperatures. Wednesday is looking like the coolest day of the week by a couple degrees with highs slightly below normal. The upper trough over the Pacific Northwest will weaken Thursday and Friday with gradually rising upper heights. This should translate into a very minor warming trend. It should be largely dry but there is enough uncertainty in the ensembles that a slight chance of showers cannot be ruled out for now. Schneider

AVIATION. -SHRA will linger near KBLI and KPAE through the overnight hours. MVFR CIGS will spread from west to east across Western Washington overnight, with most terminals seeing CIGS of 1 to 3K FT. High end IFR CIGs are possible at KHQM. Expect CIGs to gradually improve later this morning with clouds scattering during the afternoon. Many terminals will see a return to VFR conditions between 18 and 21Z. Prevailing winds will generally be in the northerly direction except for KBLI where southerly winds will prevail. Wind speeds generally AOB 10 kts, except for coastal terminals where occasional gusts to 20 kts are possible this afternoon.

KSEA . -SHRA have diminished at the terminal over the past few hours with VFR conditions currently remaining in place at the terminal. Expect CIGs to gradually lower through the night, reaching low end VFR/high end MVFR levels (generally 2-3K FT) by daybreak. CIGs will lift during the morning hours and scatter this afternoon, with VFR conditions resuming by 18 to 20Z. Northerly winds will prevail through the period at speeds AOB 10 kts.

Pullin

MARINE. Northerly to northwesterly flow in the wake of yesterday's weak front will persist across the offshore waters through much of the weekend. Advisory level winds and seas are expected this evening into the overnight hours offshore as northwesterly swells will likely reach 10 feet in spots by Sunday morning. Strong nocturnal westerly pushes will yield advisory level conditions in the Strait of Juan de Fuca into early next week.

Next week, offshore seas will generally range from 5 to 7 feet with the exception of late Monday into Tuesday where a system will potentially yield higher seas. Northwest swell expected through at least midweek.

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.
