Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 849 AM PDT Sat Jun 22 2024

SYNOPSIS
A ridge of high pressure aloft will shift east of the region today. An upper level trough moving onshore over British Columbia on Sunday will lead to cloudier and cooler conditions along with a few showers across mainly northern portions of Western Washington. A upper level ridge will rebuild into the area on Monday and Tuesday for drier and warmer conditions. Another trough arrives in the middle of the coming week for cooler conditions and additional chances for showers.

UPDATE
Forecast remains largely on track. Will see a few pockets of blue sky in the cloud cover this morning that will quickly fill in this afternoon ahead of the weak disturbance passing through tonight/Sunday. Few showers are also off the coast, and they will remain primarily over waters and cross over into Neah Bay/Vicinity today. Precipitation amounts this weekend are extremely light. One more round of upper 70s to 80 today before temperatures return to slightly below average next week with 60s and 70s. Please see the discussion below for more details (as well as an updated aviation/marine section).

HPR

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH MONDAY/
Increasing onshore flow ahead of an approaching upper trough will lead to cooler temps across the area today. Stratus should remain mostly west of Puget Sound this morning, but the coast will remain socked in through the day. Clouds will increase across the interior tonight and a convergence zone looks likely to develop over Snohomish County for a few hours on Sunday morning. Cloud cover and spotty precip will lead to 10 to 15 degrees of cooling Sunday afternoon across much of the interior lowlands compared to today. The upper trough over B.C. weakens on Monday with weak upper ridging making some inroads over Western Washington. This will lead to some clearing by Monday afternoon with temperatures moderating back to near normal for late June.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
The upper ridge amplifies as it moves east of the area on Tuesday. This will lead to a dry and warmer day for interior areas, but increasing onshore flow will likely to put a lid on temperatures along the coast. Another upper trough will push onshore Wednesday into early Thursday for cooler conditions and a decent shot at some showers for much of Western Washington. There is relatively good model agreement that weak upper ridging returns by the end of next week for drier conditions and modestly warmer temperatures. 27

AVIATION
Upper level ridge to the east combined with upper level trough offshore giving Western Washington southwesterly flow aloft through Sunday. Flow aloft will increase tonight into Sunday. In the lower levels, light onshore flow will increase tonight.

Areas of lower stratus reside along the coast and portions of the southern Sound this morning, but expect stratus to retreat back to the coastline by 18Z. Otherwise, mid to high cloud cover continues to stream overhead and will persist over the rest of the area today. Periods of IFR to low end MVFR ceilings will continue along the coast into Sunday in stratus with VFR generally expected across the interior this afternoon and evening. Ceilings for the interior will lower down to 5000 feet likely between 00z-03z and to MVFR, 2000 to 3000 feet, between 06z-09z. MVFR ceilings continuing through Sunday morning.

KSEA...Just some mid to high clouds streaming overhead today.
Ceilings will lower down to around 5000 feet around 03Z and to around 2000 feet 06Z-09Z Sunday. MVFR ceilings continuing through Sunday morning. Light southwesterly wind increasing to 4 to 8 knots by late morning and to 8 to 12 knots tonight. Felton/14

MARINE
Weak front moving through the waters today. Onshore flow increasing behind the front tonight. Weak high pressure over the coastal waters with lower pressure inland Sunday through Tuesday. Another system reaching the waters Wednesday.

Westerly winds in the Central and Eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca will continue to ease this morning, however expect winds to increase back up to small craft advisory strength for the Central and Eastern Strait late this afternoon. Small craft advisory winds continuing into Sunday morning. No advisories or warning for the remainder of the waters.

Seas around 3 feet today building to 7 feet Sunday into Monday morning as a larger west wave group arrives. Seas then subside through the remainder of the forecast period. Felton/14

SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
WA...None.
PZ...Small Craft Advisory from 2 PM this afternoon to 5 AM PDT Sunday for Central U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca-East Entrance U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca.
