Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 246 PM PDT Mon Aug 10 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry and sunny today. A weak front will bring increased cloud cover and cooler temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday. The upper trough slides east of the area Thursday as a ridge builds into the area for the weekend for warmer temperatures.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Dry and sunny across Western Washington this afternoon with just a few clouds across the northern coast. Mostly clear conditions into this evening with increasing clouds tonight with a weak marine push. An upper trough will approach the area on Tuesday for cooler conditions with some afternoon sunshine. Highs on Tuesday will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s.

The upper trough will slide through Tuesday night into Wednesday though not much in the way of precipitation is expected. The weak system will bring increased clouds on Wednesday with temperatures a bit cooler than Tuesday in the mid 60s to low 70s. The trough will slide east of the area on Thursday with just a slight chance for any showers, mainly on the coast and in the mountains. Clouds in the morning on Thursday will clear for some afternoon sunshine as some ridging builds into the area. Temperatures Thursday in the mid 60s to mid 70s across the area. JD

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. A system will slide north of the area into early Friday for increased morning clouds but generally dry weather as upper ridging builds into the Pacific Northwest. The upper ridge will be over the area Saturday into Sunday for dry weather. Temperatures will warm as well over the weekend with highs a decent bit above average in the 80s, although will have to monitor if temperatures will be warmer than that, especially on Sunday as the ridge axis shifts slightly east. Guidance differs a bit late Sunday into Monday as an upper trough approaches the area. Although deterministic runs a bit different, ensembles suggest chance for at least some precip around into Monday, so have shower chances into the forecast. Temperatures a bit cooler on Monday as the upper trough approaches the area.

AVIATION. Westerly flow aloft as upper level ridge flattens and moves eastward. The atmosphere is dry and generally stable.

Clouds have lifted and burned off for most of W WA with the only lingering patch over the far NW corner of the Olympic Peninsula where MVFR conditions persist. These VFR conditions will persist into tonight . although high clouds will start to move into the area. Marine stratus will likely push in for locations near water late tonight and into Tuesday morning with these spots falling into MVFR to IFR conditions . the IFR sites being those a bit more prone to this sort of activity /HQM . OLM . PWT/ These locations. as one would expect . should see cigs lift by late morning/early afternoon.

KSEA . VFR conditions expected through the TAF period. Surface winds northerly 8-12 kts. High clouds will gradually filter in through the afternoon with some mid level clouds very late tonight/early Tuesday. 18

MARINE. Small craft advisory conditions look to persist over the next 24 hours for the outer coastal waters . so will be extending inherited headline there with afternoon package. Conditions do however ease over the inner waters . so headline there looks good to expire. SCA winds might end up being a little late to the party in the Strait with start time of inherited headline a little on the pessimistic side . as current obs in the Strait are pretty calm. Models still very consistent on winds ramping up there . just seems like this might be more of an evening to late night event as opposed to kicking off here in the afternoon. The Strait will need to be monitored on a daily basis as a series of nocturnal westerly pushes will likely result in at least SCA conditions Wed and again Thu. Made minor tweaks to inherited forecast but all in all general trends remain in place. 18

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 2 AM PDT Tuesday for Coastal Waters From James Island To Point Grenville Out 10 Nm-Coastal Waters From Point Grenville To Cape Shoalwater Out 10 Nm.

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.
