Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 211 AM PST Tue Jan 21 2020

SYNOPSIS. Wet weather for the rest of the week into the weekend as a series of systems moves through the area. Snow levels near passes today into Wednesday will rise steadily later Wednesday into Thursday. Periods of heavy rain will lead to rising rivers and the potential for river flooding later this week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Off to the races this morning as we head into an active rest of the week. First in a series of systems is moving onshore early this morning with rain overspreading the coast and Olympic Peninsula. Rain will continue to spread inland through the morning hours with showers continuing into Wednesday morning as cold front passes through. Snow levels will be around 2500-3500 feet for majority of the moisture associated with the system. Have included the Olympics in a winter weather advisory. Otherwise going headlines remain in place. Hazardous travel is expected over the passes so those with travel plans should keep an eye on WSDOT road conditions (wsdot.com/travel/passes). Snoqualmie Pass may see a changeover to rain or rain/snow mix tonight as current easterly flow becomes more westerly. Winds will also pick up today with breezy conditions across the lowlands on the order of gusts of 25 to 40 mph - current forecast is below advisory criteria.

In addition, hi-res guidance indicates enough instability across the coastal waters and immediately inland to continue mention of thunderstorms this morning through early afternoon. Any convection that fires will be capable of heavy downpours and small hail. Activity should wane later this afternoon as trough axis passes to the west. Current forecast aligns well with Storm Prediction Center general thunder outlook.

Little noticeable break in the action during the day Wednesday into Wednesday night as warm front associated with our next system pushes north across the area. Cold front will follow on Thursday with another round of breezy winds. As warm, moist air pushes in, snow levels will rise steadily and be above pass levels by Wednesday evening. A few more inches likely for pass levels though at the onset. Otherwise, from here on out, heavy rain up to around 5000-6000 feet becomes the main concern. With this system, heaviest amounts will fall over the Olympics and Cascades with a bit of a rain shadow across the northern inland waters and portions of the Sound. Rivers flowing off the mountains will see rapid rises and may begin to see minor flooding as early as Thursday night into Friday morning. See hydrology section below for details.

CEO

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Additional systems arrive Friday into the weekend. Past Friday, uncertainty rises in the details, especially with precipitation amounts and breaks in between systems. Entire period likely won't be a washout but flooding concerns will continue as additional rainfall will enhance river rises. Temperatures will remain on the mild side with afternoon highs in the lowlands topping out in the upper 40s to low 50s.

CEO

AVIATION. Southwesterly flow aloft as an upper level trough moves over the area. The air mass is moist and stable. Light rain spreading across the Puget Sound early this morning will slide east over the next few hours. Convective showers following the front this afternoon. VFR cigs into the morning will transition to MVFR this afternoon. Winds will increase through the morning with the front. Southerly wind gusts up to 25-29 knots by this afternoon. JD

KSEA . VFR cigs will transition to MVFR late this morning through the afternoon. East winds till 12z with southerly winds through the afternoon, gusts up to 25 knots this afternoon. JD

MARINE. A front will move through through today with gales expected for the coastal waters and possibly the Central and Eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca. Gale Warning issued for the Northern Inland Waters through this afternoon with strong southerly winds. Small Craft Advisory level winds elsewhere with the front. Swells will increase through today with swells 15-21 feet by this afternoon. Active weather through this week as multiple systems move across the waters. SCA winds and gales possible with the systems. JD

HYDROLOGY. A period of warming, rising snow levels, and heavy rain in the mountains will force sharp rises on the rivers flowing off the Olympics and Cascades in western Washington. Snow levels will rise to around 5,000 to 6,000 feet with 3 to 6 inches of rain in the mountains Wednesday through early Friday. Minor flooding is possible on several rivers as a result. Rivers may be flowing high through the weekend.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
