Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 301 AM PDT Fri Aug 14 2020

SYNOPSIS. A warm upper ridge will nose into the area with much warmer weather on tap for the weekend. Temperatures will peak across the inland portion of Western Washington Sunday before easing Monday and Tuesday as the ridge weakens.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Onshore flow continues across western WA today with another mild/seasonable weather day on tap. There's little to no cloud cover so expect a sunny day. Temperatures will be close to average.

High pressure and offshore flow will bring rising temperatures this weekend. Saturday will see temperatures rising into the 80s with low 90s possible (mainly Olympia-Tacoma on south). N/NW flow will keep temps along the beaches in the 60s but you'll see 80s a few miles inland. Temperatures will peak on Sunday with widespread 90s expected across the region. May even see triple digits in the Cascade valleys. There's potential for moderate to high heat risk and therefore an Excessive Heat Warning is in effect. 33

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. High pressure will shift east and inland on Monday and Tuesday for a little relief from the heat. The coast especially will feel the relief as onshore flow and marine clouds keeps temps in the 60s. The interior will still see relatively warm conditions highs in the 80s. However, the heat risk will be lower overall.

A stronger marine push Tuesday night and Wednesday will bring cooler marine air inland for a return toward normal. A weak passing trough may along bring a few showers to the area. Similar conditions are expected for Thursday. 33

FIRE WEATHER. A Fire Weather Watch is in effect for the Cascades and Black Hills/Southwest Interior lowlands Saturday morning through Sunday evening.

Hot, dry and unstable conditions are forecast this weekend with temperatures reaching the 90s (near 100 in the Cascade valleys) and min humidities in the teens to 20s. Mid-level Haines will also reach a 6 or high potential for large fire growth. 33

AVIATION. Light northwest flow aloft and a generally dry and stable air mass will maintain VFR conditions continue this morning under clear skies. One exception will be offshore and along the immediate coastline, where some shallow marine stratus will return. This could perhaps push as far as the coastal terminals by daybreak. Onshore winds through the Strait and coast, with northerly winds through the Puget Sound terminals today, with speeds increasing to around 10 kt during the late afternoon.

KSEA . VFR conditions continue through the period. Northerly surface winds today to around 10 kt, easing after 05z tonight. Cullen

MARINE. Winds have eased below advisory thresholds this morning in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, so that Small Craft Advisory has been cancelled. Thermal low pressure will continue to strengthen to our south up the Oregon coast today, strengthening the surface pressure gradient over the southern coastal waters zones. The strongest winds are expected south of Point Grenville and within 10- 20 nm from shore. As a result, the advisory was not extended into the outer coastal zones, but brief or localized advisory strength winds cannot be entirely ruled out in these areas during the late afternoon/evening. Breezy northerly continue over the waters Saturday and offshore flow through the Strait of Juan de Fuca with building short-period seas resulting in choppy conditions. A southerly wind reversal will develop over the coastal waters Sunday with a return to onshore flow early next week. 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.

SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WA . Excessive Heat Watch from Sunday morning through Sunday evening for Bellevue and Vicinity-Bremerton and Vicinity-Cascades of Pierce and Lewis Counties-Cascades of Snohomish and King Counties-Cascades of Whatcom and Skagit Counties-East Puget Sound Lowlands-Everett and Vicinity-Hood Canal Area-Lower Chehalis Valley Area-Seattle and Vicinity-Southwest Interior-Tacoma Area.

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.
