SYNOPSIS
A series of strong weather systems will maintain active weather across the Pacific Northwest for much of the week ahead. Heavy precipitation and gusty winds develop overnight through early Saturday, maintaining hazardous winter driving conditions over the Cascade passes. This is followed by a pair of atmospheric rivers that impact the region through early next week. This will also lead to increased risk of river flooding across the region, especially Monday and Tuesday with much higher snow levels bringing widespread rain.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/
Scattered showers continue across the region this afternoon in the form of lowland rain and mountain snow. 24 hour snowfall estimates as of early this afternoon show around 7 inches at Snoqualmie Pass and 10 inches at Stevens, with over a foot at Paradise on Mount Rainier. The next system will not be far away, with the enhanced reflectivity already showing up within range of KLGX radar this afternoon. The current winter storm warnings for the Cascades and winter weather advisory for the Olympics both remain in effect with no changes, though rising snow levels overnight will keep the highest snow amounts above around 3,000 feet as the steadier precipitation arrives. An additional round of heavier snow in the mountains will move in tonight through early Saturday. Meanwhile, wind advisories have been posted for all of the lowlands with a burst of strong southerly winds expected ahead of the front. Snow levels rise further into Sunday with the atmospheric river moving into the region. Guidance today has shifted the axis of strongest moisture transport, and accordingly highest QPF, to the south from the previous cycle and the forecast has been updated in this manner.
This system will bring another round of heavy rain, including rain on the newly fallen snow, which will result in enhanced flows on local rivers and the potential for river flooding. See the hydrology section for additional details on the flood watch and this threat.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
This next system likely pushes into the region by late Monday night and into Tuesday. With abundant moisture transport and very high snow levels, the hydrologic concerns remain elevated through Tuesday and Wednesday.
Again, more details follow in the hydrology section below, but the impact of rain falling on snow will likely only further enhance the potential for flooding next week. The forecast will remain very sensitive to minor changes in QPF, so continue to closely monitor the forecast in the coming days.

AVIATION
Showers have cleared out of the immediate Puget Sound region. As a result, there has been some breaks of sunshine, but there is still areas of broken MVFR cloud decks around the region.
The next round of precipitation is advancing eastward ahead of a cold front. As of this afternoon, activity is concentrated along and off the coast, and south of Olympia. The activity off the coast has ongoing convection, with several strikes of lightning. As activity spreads eastward after 06-08Z, rain will begin filling in the region, with heavier precipitation expected primarily west of I-5.
MVFR (with a mix of IFR/LIFR in areas close to Puget Sound waters and in the elevations). Breaks to VFR are possible late in the morning Saturday, and early afternoon.

Main concern will be winds going into tonight. Ahead of the cold front, winds will become gusty at 15 to 25 kt (from the south), with gusts exceeding 40 kt likely. Windiest areas will be in areas along the coast, and along Puget Sound. The windiest period is expected to last from 06Z through 15Z.

KSEA...MVFR/VFR clouds this afternoon will continue. Precipitation arrives with a cold frontal passage tonight from 03Z to 15Z Saturday. Some of the rain may be heavy at times, reducing visibilities to MVFR/IFR. Low clouds with the precipitation will keep ceilings MVFR through at least late Saturday morning. Winds this afternoon will remain southerly around 10 kt, with an increase to 15 to 25 kt expected after 09Z (gusts to 40 kt possible).

MARINE
Winds this afternoon remain elevated across all waters post warm-front. Will keep headlines in place that are expiring this afternoon. Otherwise, a break in the activity is quickly transitioning to more active precipitation via a cold-front passage tonight/Saturday. Ongoing rain (with areas of convection including lightning strikes) continues to advance eastward just off the Washington Pacific coast. Increase of rain (with a couple storms)
will occur this evening, which may reduce visibilities at times due to heavy rain. Winds will once again pick up from the south going into the overnight hours, with the highest winds expected to occur from 06Z-15Z. Winds in the gale force range are expected to be widespread with this system. Gale warnings will go into effect for all waters Friday night into Saturday morning. South winds in the inland waters will reach 25 to 35 kt with gusts through 40 kt possible. For the coastal waters, west winds will also top out at 25 to 35 kt with gusts to 40 kt possible. In the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the windiest areas will likely be in the central/western sections, with gusts between 45 and 50 kt possible.

After the initial windy period overnight tonight, winds will diminish slightly, but will remain hazardous for small crafts through the day on Saturday. Additional systems will require additional headlines going into next week. In addition to winds, seas in the coastal waters will build to around 13 feet, with increases to 16 to 19 feet expected Saturday morning. They will remain above 10 feet for the foreseeable future, with additional peaks of 16 to 19 feet expected on Monday, and Wednesday.

HYDROLOGY
A series of weather systems will move through western Washington over the weekend and through the first half of next week, bringing multiple rounds of rain and periods of mountain snow to the region. A flood watch remains in effect for the area from Saturday evening through late Wednesday night. While periods of heavy snow are forecast for the mountains through Saturday, expect warmer and wetter systems to move into the area Sunday through Tuesday. As a result, snow levels will rise rapidly from 2500 to 3500 feet to 5500 to 6500 feet on Sunday morning, before peaking at 8000 to 9000 feet by Monday night. 72 hour precipitation totals from Sunday morning to Wednesday morning generally range from 10 inches in the higher elevations of the Olympics and Cascades, 6-8 inches for the foothills, 2-4 inches for the interior lowlands, and 4-6 inches for the coast. The combination of heavy precipitation and rising snow levels will most likely result in river flooding on many rivers across western Washington. At this point, moderate flooding is possible on some of the bigger rivers like the Snoqualmie and Skagit as well as the lower reaches of the Chehalis beginning Tuesday. An important point to note, however, is that while flooding looks likely across the region, there remains a degree of uncertainty in the scope and extent due to timing of the snow to rain switchover in the high elevations and uncertainty in the locations of the heaviest bands of precipitation. Thus, it will be important to stay up to date on the latest forecast developments over the weekend.

In addition to the river flooding, burn scars in the Cascades will have to be monitored with the heavy precipitation forecast. Elevated risks of landslide and debris flow threats will be possible at times next week. 14
