Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 249 AM PDT Tue Aug 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. A short return to upper level high pressure is in store for today and Wednesday ahead of the next low pressure system to arrive on Thursday. Dry and seasonably warm temperatures expected today and Wednesday.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. High pressure centered over eastern ID/MT with light onshore flow will keep things dry and seasonably normal today and Wednesday before the next system arrives on Thursday. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s with low 80s in spots throughout the interior with cooler 60s along the coast.

Widespread PoPs over the CWA associated with Thursday's system, but generally not a lot of rain accumulation expected. The forecast came in a little too vigorous on thunder chances this morning and after reviewing some of the hi-res models, it would appear that the dynamics and sufficient instability are just not in place to support it at this time. As such, the chances were significantly tampered down in this morning's forecast. The best chance for thunder is probably on the east side of the Cascades but will warrant additional monitoring.

Unlike the last low pressure system to move through the area, Thursday's system is expected to bring the temperatures down into the low 70s and upper 60s in the interior. This will be a refreshing exchange of cooler air for those prefer something a bit more moderate temperature wise.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Now for the great extended range model debate . the GFS wants to keep some light shower activity in the forecast into Friday with a weak system falling apart on Saturday as it reaches the coast. After that, the GFS builds another ridge into the area, keeping things dry and warm into early next week. On the other hand, the ECMWF would like to keep it unsettled through the weekend, without developing the early-week ridge. As of now, the forecast has temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s with 60s along the coast.

Kristell

AVIATION. Onshore flow will bring marine stratus clouds inland this morning with IFR to MVFR ceilings possible. The stratus clouds will burn back toward the coast this afternoon with VFR conditions in the interior. Low clouds will return overnight. 33

KSEA . Patchy low clouds and IFR cigs possible this morning, then becoming VFR this afternoon. N winds to 10 kt. 33

MARINE. Onshore flow will continue today and Wednesday. Highest wind and waves will be found through the Strait of Juan de Fuca - Small Craft Advisory winds are likely. Onshore flow will increase on Thursday as a cold front moves inland. A second, weaker, front will arrive on Friday. Onshore flow will continue into the weekend. 33

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

SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WA . None. PZ . Small Craft Advisory from 6 PM this evening to 8 AM PDT Wednesday for Central U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca- East Entrance U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca.

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.
