Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 315 AM PST Fri Feb 21 2020

SYNOPSIS. High level cloud cover will increase today, ahead of a weak cold front set to move into the area Saturday. A few light showers will be possible Saturday before a stronger system moves in on Sunday. Breezy to locally windy conditions will be possible Sunday with lowland rain and mountain snow likely. Rain and snow will gradually taper Monday, allowing for a generally benign week of weather next week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. A synoptic analysis of the atmosphere this morning reveals a split-flow pattern across the CONUS and Canada. The northern stream represents a stronger belt of westerly flow across the Canadian Provinces, along with a subtle shortwave crossing the Pacific Northwest and another across the Dakotas, while the southern stream features a closed low offshore the California coast, helping advect tropical Pacific moisture into the desert SW, and an elongated area of vorticity stretching across the South. At the sfc, continued strong area of high pressure (with center pressure around 1040mb) remains the dominant feature across the majority of the CONUS.

Focusing on western Washington, another benign weather day is expected across the area. Aforementioned subtle shortwave trough will continue to push east of the area through the morning hours, with little in the way of any sensible weather impacts. In this wave's wake, the mid/upper level flow will become more zonal and heights will begin to fall. In the lower levels, a weak cold front will begin to approach the region but it and its associated precip will remain well offshore thru the afternoon. Overall today expect an increase in higher level cloud cover.

The cold front will then begin to move into the area this evening and overnight, with a projected E/SE trajectory. It appears the most substantial height falls along with the best jet dynamics will remain to the north of the area. This combined with the increasing displacement from the parent system up in Alaska/Yukon will cause the front to weaken as it crosses the area. Some light precip is still expected along the front, especially across northern and western sections of the area. Precip should fade through the day Saturday as the system further dissipates. Snow levels will generally be in the 3000-4000 ft range in the vicinity of the front, with little snowfall expected in the mountains.

Overnight Saturday and into Sunday, a much more organized area of low pressure will approach the local area. Still seeing a little discrepancy with finer details of the exact track of the low but overall guidance is becoming better aligned. The mid level low is expected to take on a slight negative tilt as it moves into Vancouver Island Sunday morning. Seeing some decent dynamics attempting to materialize on Sunday, with widespread precip in the vicinity of the warm front (associated with WAA), followed quickly by convective activity along and in the wake of the cold front. Model guidance is suggestive of mid level temps falling back to -30C, indicating the development of steep mid level lapse rates, with additional lift supplied by the advancement of the left exit of a 300mb jet streak. May need to add isolated thunder to the forecast on Sunday. In addition, winds just off the sfc will be in the 40-50kt range, indicating likely development of breezy to perhaps locally windy conditions. As if this is not enough, after the passage of the cold front Sunday afternoon/evening, snow levels plummet below 3000ft. With convective activity expected with this environment, accumulating snow (possibly heavy at times) in the mountains, especially the Cascades, is likely. This could very well cause travel impacts across the Passes- something to keep in mind if traveling this weekend.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Lingering showers and mountain snow are likely to continue at least through the morning hours on Monday, tapering through the afternoon. A much more amplified pattern is expected across the CONUS Monday into Tuesday, with a ridge building along the West Coast and troughing developing across the middle of the country. This should give us at least a quick dry period overnight Monday into Tuesday. Thereafter, a weak frontal system may still be able to slide into the area and provide the potential for a few light showers into Wednesday. The ridge tries to recover on Thursday, with intent to keep the storm track to the north and provide a return to drier and warmer (mid-upper 50s?!) conditions through the remainder of the work week.

AVIATION. Skies are still mostly clear early this morning but there are some areas of low clouds off the south coast that might make it to Hoquiam this morning. Cirrus will increase but the air mass will remain dry and stable today. Onshore flow will eventually moisten up the air mass by daybreak on Saturday.

KSEA . A little cirrus--increasing later today. Low clouds should not arrive til around 10z Saturday, plus or minus a couple hours.

MARINE. Light onshore flow will develop today and increase tonight. A weak front will break up over the area Saturday and then a more vigorous front and low pressure system will arrive Sunday. Onshore flow will ease Monday.

HYDROLOGY. No river flooding is expected over the next 7 days. Light showers are expected on Saturday, followed by a much more organized system on Sunday. Overall rainfall amounts on Sunday will range from under half an inch in the lowlands, to 1-2 inches across the higher terrain. The heaviest precip on Sunday is likely to coincide with falling snow levels, and the onset of a more substantial snowfall across the mountains. This should prevent the threat for river flooding. As the system departs Monday and precip tapers, a return to generally dry conditions is expected through much of next week.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
