Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 850 AM PDT Thu Oct 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. An upper level ridge will remain over the area through Friday before shifting east Saturday. Dry upper level trough will move through Sunday followed by another upper level ridge building next week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Current satellite imagery shows pretty extensive fog over the W WA interior lowlands . mainly from Marysville to points south and along the coast. Fog layer is relatively shallow . around 600 ft . with camera atop the Space Needle providing some interesting images as it just peeks over the layer. Will see this fog linger into the remainder of the morning with things starting to burn off around 10 or 11 AM PDT. Generally clear skies are expected to prevail for the remainder of the day although some haze will still be possible due to imported smoke from CA wildfires Like yesterday though. little to no impact to air quality is expected as majority of smoke will remain aloft. Highs remain on track to reach the lower to mid 70s over the interior with mid 60s along the coast.

Some minor amplification to the ridge tonight, changing the flow aloft to southerly over Western Washington. This has the potential to pull a little more smoke aloft in the evening hours into the area. Light flow in the lower levels will continue into Friday morning. Stratus along the coast will persist with patchy fog developing late over the interior. Lows tonight in the upper 40s and 50s.

Upper level ridge axis shifting inland on Friday. Increasing onshore flow in the afternoon developing too late to bring any of the coastal stratus inland and cool daytime high temperatures significantly. Upper level ridge centered over California with light flow aloft there should help shut off the flow of upper level smoke over Western Washington. Highs in the lower to mid 70s inland with lower to mid 60s along the coast.

Finally we see the ridge shifting east of the Cascades Friday night into Saturday with low level onshore flow increasing Friday night. This will push the coastal stratus deck inland Saturday morning. The onshore flow will be weak keeping the marine layer shallow enough to allow for afternoon sunshine over the interior. Lows Saturday morning in the 50s. Highs Saturday a little cooler over the interior with mid 60s to lower 70s. Highs along the coast remaining in the lower to mid 60s. 18/Felton

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. From Previous Discussion . Extended models in good agreement with a dry upper level trough moving through the area early Sunday. This will enhance the marine layer over Western Washington Sunday morning. The deeper marine layer will mean more morning clouds over the interior and a later break out into the sunshine in the afternoon. Sunday will be the coolest day in the next week with highs mostly in the 60s.

Another upper level ridge building behind the trough Sunday night into Monday with 500 mb heights climbing back up into the mid 580 dms. Low level flow trying to turn offshore Monday. Upper level ridge with light offshore flow Tuesday. Models continue to show good consistency with the ridge beginning to break down Wednesday. Another round of above normal high temperatures Monday and Tuesday with mid 60s to mid 70s for the interior and 60s along the coast. Slightly cooler Wednesday with the ridge weakening. Felton

AVIATION. An upper ridge will remain over the area today and tonight with westerly flow aloft and light low level onshore flow. The air mass will be stable and dry except for areas of night and morning low clouds and fog. There will also be smoke aloft at times today and tonight.

KSEA . Fog should burn off late this morning with mostly clear skies this afternoon. Fog is likely again Friday morning. Northerly wind 3-6 knots. Schneider

MARINE. Light onshore flow will continue for the next several days with weak high pressure over the Offshore Waters and lower pressure inland. Onshore flow will increase a bit around Saturday with small craft advisory strength west winds possible for the Central Strait of Juan de Fuca and the East Entrance. Schneider

HYDROLOGY. No flooding is expected on area rivers through the next 7 days.

CLIMATE. Record high for Seattle today 89 degrees set in 1987. This is by far the warmest October day on record in Seattle with the second warmest day 83 degrees on October 11, 1991. 80 degree plus days in Seattle in October are rare with only 7 since records started in 1945 at Sea-Tac. The last 80 degree plus day in October in Seattle was October 3, 1993 ( 80 degrees ). Felton
