Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 826 AM PDT Sun Jul 12 2020

SYNOPSIS. Some lingering showers continue this morning with skies starting to clear in the afternoon. Dry conditions will continue into at least mid-week with sunny skies and warmer temperatures. Some weak systems passing to the north of the area may allow for scattered showers at times for the second half of the week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. We're in post-frontal onshore flow this morning with showers mostly in the Cascades and central/north sound where there's convergence. Expect light rain or drizzle with the convergence zone through the morning. Drier weather is expected this afternoon as a passing trough exits east. Temps remain below normal today with most spots in the 60s. 33

Previous discussion . The upper level low responsible for this up in Canada looks to continue to slowly move eastward . allowing for the prospect of showers to diminish even further as the day progresses. Upper level ridging will build over the W Pacific with the leading edge of this ridge entering into W WA this evening. This ridge will continue to move eastward slowly over the remainder of the short term period . allowing for dry conditions to persist and temperatures to warm to more summer-like values.

High temps today will still remain a little on the mild side of things with most interior lowland locations getting into the mid to upper 60s . although the SW interior may get up into the lower 70s. Coastal temps will generally sit in the lower 60s. Highs Monday will see the effects of the ridge kick in pretty quickly with lower to mid 70s for the interior while coastal areas will warm into the mid 60s. Tuesday sees this trend continue as interior highs will climb into the upper 70s while the coast lingers in the mid 60s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Previous discussion . The offshore ridge still expected to flatten out in the Wed/Thu timeframe. The ECMWF looks to try and bring a system down into W WA Thursday . but it really only droops down enough to impact the northern two-thirds of the CWA. The GFS does not really allow this feature to dip down far enough to have any effect at all. Ensembles tend to split the difference here with bringing some precip in . but not terribly much . thus have opted for relatively weak PoPs in the forecast Beyond that. the deterministic models flip roles . with the GFS bringing in some weak shortwaves that could produce some weak PoPs here and there while the ECMWF looks to bring in another ridge. Ensembles seem to once again try to split the difference.

Wednesday looks to be the warmest day of the week with interior locations getting close to 80 before the flattening ridge will allow things to cool a bit back down into the lower to mid 70s for the remainder of the week. 18

AVIATION. Low cigs and some poor vsby in drizzle in the convergence zone this morning. A few areas were mostly clear at 8am-- the HQM/Aberdeen area and a good part of SW Washington was mostly clear. But overall there will be onshore flow and mostly cloudy skies til later today. The mountains will be mostly obscured with some showers or drizzle in the Cascades.

KSEA . PSCZ doing a number on Seattle this morning, amending for poor conditions but there should be improvement this afternoon and evening.

MARINE. Increased the forecast to 20-30kt later today for the central and eastern Strait with an advisory in effect--Race Rocks could reach gale for an hour or two this evening. Varying degrees of onshore flow this week with high pressure over the coastal waters and lower pressure inland. Small craft advisory westerlies expected each evening in the Central and East Entrance of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

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 until 5 AM PDT Monday 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. 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.
