Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 258 AM PDT Fri Apr 3 2020

SYNOPSIS. Lowland rain and mountain snow showers will continue today as another low pressure system affects the region. Drier conditions are expected on Saturday before a chance of showers returns for Sunday as a trough of low pressure moves onshore south of the area. A building ridge of high pressure is expected to lead to dry and warmer conditions from Monday into the middle part of the coming week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Remnants of an earlier convergence have drifted northward into the Admiralty Inlet area and portions Snohomish/Skagit counties overnight. Shower activity will increase again later this morning . especially across the North Interior and Cascades . as an upper trough dipping southward across the western Canadian provinces clips the area. QPF continues to look on the light side. The best opportunity for precip across the Puget Sound area will likely be this afternoon and early evening in the form of a convergence zone. Any PSCZ is likely to be short-lived as low level gradients quickly turn northerly tonight as a deepening surface low moves in the Oregon coastal waters.

Weak shortwave ridging will keep most of Western Washington dry on Saturday as an upper trough digs southward well offshore. Eventually, some moisture associated with that system will wrap around into the far southern part of the forecast area late Saturday night and Sunday, but it's not enough to warrant more than a chance of showers at this time. Weak, nondescript upper troughing remains over the region on Sunday. That's enough to warrant low chance PoPs, but most places will probably be dry most of the day. With the influence of a persistent upper trough over Western Washington, temperatures through the short term forecast period will remain below normal.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As the previously mentioned offshore upper trough continues its southward journey into California, an offshore upper ridge upstream will begin to build into the region. It's not a particularly high amplitude ridge, but 500mb heights will build from the low 550s dam to near 570 by Wednesday. 850mb temps rise from near 1C Monday afternoon to around 9C by Wednesday afternoon. This spells a decent warmup with several spots cracking 60 degrees Tues/Wed. Deterministic model runs fall out of agreement toward the end of the extended forecast period with the Euro keeping ridging around longer than the GFS. A look at the ensemble means for the 7 to 10 day period from the Euro, GFS, and Canadian all show positive height anomalies over the northeast Pacific with strongly negative anomalies over central and southern California. This suggests that we might be turning the corner toward a milder, more spring-like pattern next week. 27

AVIATION. Showers will remain in the area tonight as the trough lingers over the region. Weak convergence zone activity is persisting through the night across Snohomish county with scattered showers approaching the western shores. Conditions will be generally VFR across all terminals, breaking to MVFR near daybreak as shower activity picks up in the morning hours. Flow will be southwesterly between 10-15 knots, before taking a more onshore direction near daybreak. Patchy low clouds and MVFR cigs are possible Friday morning with onshore flow.

KSEA . Generally VFR conditions are expected at the terminal overnight. Showers in the vicinity tonight with S/SW winds to 10 kt. Possible MVFR ceilings early Friday morning as shower activity increases with more onshore flow.

Kristell

MARINE. Onshore flow will prevail across western WA tonight with scattered showers making their way onshore through the night and into Friday morning. Strongest wind/waves will be through the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Northern Inland Waters - a Small Craft Advisory is in effect. Winds will remain onshore through Friday then ease Friday night. Low pressure will shift toward OR/CA over the weekend with generally light N/NE flow over western WA. The flow will turn onshore again by Monday as low pressure shifts inland.

Kristell

HYDROLOGY. No river flooding is expected over the next 7 days.

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

Small Craft Advisory until 5 AM PDT early this morning for Northern Inland Waters Including The San Juan Islands.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

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.
