Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 340 AM PST Fri Dec 1 2023

SYNOPSIS
Active and potentially significant weather is expected to affect the area through the middle of next week.
Expect lowland rain and heavy mountain snow into Saturday. The pattern will begin to shift Saturday afternoon as the first of two atmospheric rivers moves into the area. The second atmospheric river Monday into Tuesday is expected to be an even stronger event with much higher snow levels, heavier rainfall, potential river flooding with breezy conditions.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
Latest radar imagery illustrates a stronger batch of rain entering through the coastal areas early this morning as a shortwave trough pushes through W WA, marking the start of a very active weather pattern. Rain will spread from the coast through interior this morning, with snow falling in the mountains. Gusty winds are likely along the coast and Whidbey Island northward through the afternoon, but will remain under any advisory threshold. A slight chance of some weak thunderstorm activity exists along the coast into this evening, but will likely not develop as well, with not much instability to work with.

Rain is expected over the interior throughout the remainder of the day, with significant snowfall starting in the mountains. Snow levels largely remain around 2000 to 2500 this morning, with a Winter Storm Warning in place for all of the Cascade zones, with 2 to 3 feet of snow possible, especially at the passes. Traveling through the passes will be difficult during this time. A winter weather advisory is posted for the Olympics for lower snow accumulations, especially at Hurricane Ridge.

Temperatures will be more moderate today, with high temps in the mid to upper 40s throughout the interior.

A wetter system will impact the area by Saturday morning, bringing along copious amounts of moisture, breezy conditions, and more mountain snow. Winds look to definitely be breezy throughout the coast and the interior by Saturday morning, and will need to be monitored for a potential wind advisory. Snow levels will slowly rise to around 2500 to 3000 feet throughout Saturday evening. Even with snow levels being a touch higher, heavy mountain snow will still continue, and moderate to heavy rain can be expected elsewhere. This timeframe onward is when hydrologic concerns will heightened, with rising rivers and snowmelt runoff, because precipitation will compound on each other in the next several days.

An atmospheric river looking system will push into Western Washington early on Sunday, bringing widespread moderate rainfall throughout the area, with the heaviest rain likely in the Olympic basins, along with the Cascades. Another round of breezy winds are likely as well, especially areas near the water (coastal locations and areas around Whidbey Island northward). Snow levels will rise to around 5500 to 6000 feet by Sunday afternoon, limiting snow to the higher elevations in the mountains. With snow levels rising during this time and relatively warm rain falling on fresh snow, hydrologic impacts can be expected, especially with the continuous swath of moisture, this will make river flooding more likely along with snowmelt runoff in the mountains. See the hydro section down below for more details.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
A second, stronger atmospheric river will impact W WA by Monday morning and last into Tuesday. Ensemble model guidance depicts a strong plume of southwesterly Pacific moisture being aimed directly in our region. Guidance is leaning towards this system being the strongest in terms of precipitation and moisture for the area, with temperatures exceeding 50 degrees. On top of that, snow levels rise even more to around 7000 to 8000 feet. By this time rivers will likely be running at elevated levels, this will be a very heightened timeframe for multiple rivers reaching flood stage, and several other elevated hydrologic impacts. More info will likely be ironed out in the coming days as we get more river and QPF guidance.

AVIATION
Frontal system moving through the area this morning with another one Saturday. Westerly flow aloft becoming northwest behind the front this afternoon then strong westerly tonight into Saturday morning ahead of the next front.

Ceilings mostly MVFR this morning with some pockets of IFR over the Kitsap Peninsula and the Southwest Interior. Little change in the conditions this morning with the exception of a little more IFR ceilings with the front mid to late morning. Slow improvement behind the front this afternoon with some areas of VFR by late afternoon to go with the MVFR ceilings. Conditions lowering back down to MVFR all locations overnight.

KSEA...MVFR ceilings this morning into the afternoon hours. Slight improvement into the low end of VFR mid afternoon into the evening hours. Ceilings lowering back down to MVFR overnight. South southeast wind 6 to 10 knots becoming southwest 10 to 15 knots with gusts 20 to 25 knots midday. Winds easing this evening.

MARINE
A series of frontal systems will make their way across the waters beginning today. The next system will arrive Saturday followed by additional systems later Sunday and again Tuesday. The first two systems will bring at least small craft advisory conditions to the waters and in most cases gale warnings. The system later Sunday and Tuesday will produce small craft advisory conditions.

Seas building this afternoon to around 13 feet with seas continuing to build tonight peaking in the 13 to 16 foot range Sunday. Seas slowly subsiding through Monday but remaining above 10 feet. Seas building again Tuesday to 16 to 18 feet. Felton

HYDROLOGY
A flood watch is in effect for the area from Saturday evening through late Wednesday night. A series of weather systems will move through Western Washington through Tuesday. The first system will arrive today, the second one tomorrow, third one later Sunday and the fourth one Tuesday. Each system will be wetter than the previous one. Snow levels around 2000 to 3000 feet today will slowly rise tonight and Saturday to 2500 to 3500 feet. Snow levels rising quickly Sunday up to around 6000 feet with snow levels peaking in the 7500 to 8500 foot range Monday night. The 72 hour precipitation totals ending Wednesday morning could be as high as 10 inches in the Cascades with 6 to 8 inches in the Olympics. The combination of heavy precipitation and rising snow levels will most likely result in river flooding 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. In addition to the river flooding, burn scars in the Cascades will have to be monitored with heavy precipitation forecast. Felton
