Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 905 AM PST Sat Jan 23 2021

SYNOPSIS. Western Washington will remain dry today. There are a few patches of low clouds and fog. A front will arrive Sunday. Another weather system will reach the area midweek--although most of the precipitation will head into California. The snow level will be low through the week ahead and even the lowlands will flirt with a chance of snow at times--especially after Tuesday.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH MONDAY/. There area a few patches of low clouds and fog--but many areas are sunny across Western Washington this morning. A front will reach the area on Sunday. The air will be just cold enough for a threat of lowland snow--but mainly on the hills above 500 feet. Low level flow will be southerly which is not favorable for lowland snow accumulations and precipitation rates are not expected to be very heavy. The best chance for maybe an inch or two of snow will be in the usual spots where we see it at the DOT webcams that have a little higher elevation (Heckelsville shed, Rock Candy Mountain, Mount Walker, Tiger mountain and of course the Lake Samish webcam up in Whatcom county). With a little trickle of Fraser air perhaps Whatcom county has the best chance for wet snow Sunday morning. The UW WRFGFS shows something like a half inch of snow on the hills of south Snohomish county around daybreak Sunday--think Maltby and Clearview. But overall, this will not be a big deal--a few hours of slushy roads on the highest hills. The preci will turn showery Sunday night and scattered showers on Monday will have a cooler air mass to work with--but it will still be hit or miss and favor the hills. 19

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. A weak upper trough will linger over the region early Tuesday for a dry first part of the day. An offshore upper low and an associated frontal system will bring another shot of precipitation later in the day into Tuesday night.

Once again, the air mass will be marginally cold enough for a threat of lowland snow. Low level flow will be easterly which is more favorable for low elevation snow. Ensemble solutions suggest the most likely scenario is for most areas to get minor accumulations - generally less than an inch - Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Needless to say, there is a lot of uncertainty with exact snow amounts this far out. What we can say with for now is this timeframe looks like the best shot for a little lowland snow for most areas next week.

A split upper trough will remain parked offshore later Wednesday through Friday with southerly flow aloft for Western Washington. There will be showers around and snow levels will remain low but no organized weather systems are expected at this time. Additional lowland snow accumulations cannot be ruled out but anything that occurs will likely be spotty and light. Schneider

AVIATION. Isolated patches of low clouds and fog continue this morning, making for LIFR ceilings at some TAF sites (mainly around Puget Sound). These conditions may hang around through the morning hours before gradually dissipating this afternoon-light flow may make erosion difficult. Outside of the fog/low clouds, VFR conditions will prevail through the day today, eventually giving way to an MVFR ceiling overnight/early Sunday as the next storm system moves in. Winds will remain generally light out of the south at 6kts or less.

KSEA . Morning fog/low clouds with LIFR conditions possible. Any period of LIFR will give way to VFR conditions as fog/stratus erodes. VFR will continue into the overnight, eventually giving way to an MVFR ceiling with rain early Sunday. Winds S around 6kts.

Kovacik

MARINE. No changes to the ongoing marine forecast. Patchy areas of fog will be possible over the waters through the morning hours, giving way to mostly sunny skies this afternoon. Winds will remain remain light through the day today and well before advisory criteria. Previous discussion included below:

Weak high pressure over the waters will dissipate today. A cold front will move through the area late tonight and Sunday morning. Weak surface low later Sunday dissipating Monday. Another front arriving Tuesday night moving inland south of the area. Strong surface low moving by to the west and south Wednesday.

Gale force winds for the outer coastal waters Sunday easing to small craft advisory winds Sunday night. Gale force winds possible again later Tuesday.

Small craft advisory winds for the inner coastal waters Sunday and Sunday night and for the Northern Inland Waters, East Entrance to the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Admiralty inlet Sunday afternoon.
