Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 319 PM PDT Fri Aug 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. Weak high pressure remains over the region this afternoon but will into the region today for drier conditions. A weak system will brush the region tonight and early Saturday for a chance of showers before high pressure returns for warmer and drier conditions Sunday and Monday. An upper trough will return around the middle of next week for cooler temperatures and additional cloud cover.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. Latest satellite imagery reveals the leading clouds associated with the next front reaching from near Bellingham and extending southwest across the Strait of Juan de Fuca and portions of the Olympic Peninsula this afternoon. Meanwhile, radar data and surface observations reveal that some light rain is not far behind, moving into the Peninsula now. The associated clouds will continue to advance into Western Washington this afternoon and tonight, bringing along some light showers. The best chances for rain will be along the coast, in the mountains, and portions of the interior north of around Everett tonight through early Saturday morning. Given the rain will be light, the more noticeable impact will be the deeper cloud deck in place Saturday morning. While some clearing will develop by the afternoon, temperatures Saturday will remain a few degrees below normal. A stronger onshore push will bring breezy winds along the Strait of Juan de Fuca and through Puget Sound tomorrow in the afternoon and evening hours.

Weak high pressure aloft will begin to build over the region Sunday, leading to temperatures climbing a bit warmer. With weakening onshore flow late Sunday and into Monday, expect to see temperature return to the 80s through the lowlands Monday afternoon. However, some clouds begin to return late Monday ahead of the next weak disturbance approaching the region. Cullen

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. The flow aloft turns zonal on Tuesday as a trough passes by well to our north. This will increase the onshore flow and cool temperatures a few notches before a secondary and potentially deeper trough swings across the region late Wednesday and Thursday. There's a fair amount of uncertainty with respect to precipitation chances toward midweek. At this time, cooler than normal temperatures along with extensive night and morning clouds are a good bet and perhaps some shower activity across the north half of the area and in the Cascades. 27

AVIATION. Few pockets of clouds remain over the terrain, but generally VFR conditions across the region. Leading band of clouds associated with approaching front reaching KBLI-KUIL line as of 21z and will continue to spread onshore this evening. Expect widespread low VFR to MVFR ceilings to develop from west to east overnight, with local IFR possible along the coast.

KSEA . VFR conditions this afternoon, but increasing clouds return this evening ahead of front. Expect predominant lower VFR conditions overnight with a few hours of MVFR 12z-16z, with return to VFR by 18z. Southwest surface winds likely switch to northerly after 00z through much of the night, before returning to south/southwest early Saturday. Cullen

MARINE. A weak front crosses the waters this afternoon and evening. Northerly to northwesterly winds return over the coastal waters Saturday with a stronger onshore push through the Strait of Juan de Fuca likely bringing advisory strength winds. Meanwhile, strengthening surface gradient will likely lead to advisory strength winds over portions of the coastal waters Saturday afternoon and evening. Northwesterly winds persist over the coastal waters through early next week. Seas over the coastal waters generally 5-7 ft through early next week, largest over the outer waters, and dominated by a northwest swell. Cullen

HYDROLOGY. The daily hydrology discussion has ended until the start of the next rainy season; it will only be updated as needed until then.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
