Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 735 PM PST Fri Feb 21 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak frontal system will bring increasing clouds and a chance of showers tonight and Saturday. A stronger and wetter system will bring more rain, gusty winds and mountain snow on Sunday. Rain and snow will gradually taper Monday, allowing for a generally benign week of weather next week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. Starting to see the first slightest indications of the incoming system both on current satellite and on radar. Satellite shows clouds associated with the system just creeping over the far NW tip of the Olympic Peninsula while current radar shows any prospect of associated precip remains over the coastal waters . although to be fair . echoes are pretty light To emphasize de-emphasizing said echoes. obs over BC show that only the thicker cloud cover/cooler cloud tops seem to be supporting any actual observed precip and those remain well north of the CWA. This would support thoughts of previous shift regarding potential rainfall chances and amounts associated with this system.

With forecast holding together well . no evening updates anticipated. 18

From Previous Discussion . We're seeing one last fine day across western WA with temps in the 50s and skies mostly sunny. But our dry streak will come to an end as a weak Pacific frontal system moves inland tonight and Saturday. Most of the showers will be along the coast and in the mountains as this system passes through. Rainfall amounts in the interior will be generally light (under 0.10"). Temperatures will be a few degrees cooler on Saturday with highs in the upper 40s. We'll see a brief break in the weather Saturday night as this system exits.

A stronger and wetter frontal system is slated for Sunday. This system will bring more rain, gusty winds and possibly heavy mountain snow to the area. Snow levels will remain low, around 2500 ft, with accumulating snow expected at the higher passes (like Stevens and White Pass). Snoqualmie Pass may see a rain/snow mix at times. Winds will be gusty (out of the S/SW) as the cold front moves through the interior Sunday afternoon - gusts to 30 to 40 mph expected. Showers will mostly impact the Cascades Sunday night under post-frontal onshore flow. Will likely see a convergence zone develop which may bring more heavy snow to the central Cascades (including Stevens and Snoqualmie Passes).

Showers will linger into Monday as onshore flow continues but it looks like most of the activity will remain in the Cascades. We should see drier conditions toward the afternoon and evening as a ridge moves inland. 33

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. From Previous Discussion . High pressure will remain over the Pac NW on Tuesday for dry and mild weather across western WA. The ridge will weaken/flatten Tuesday night or Wednesday as a weak frontal system moves into southern B.C. and clips western WA. The ridge may rebuild over the region late in the week for another brief dry spell. 33

AVIATION. Westerly flow aloft tonight and Saturday. A weak front will move into the area tonight before breaking up over the area on Saturday. The air mass is generally stable with high clouds in place over most of W WA with mid to low level clouds moving in with the weak front. Low clouds expected to be widespread by Saturday morning before starting to scatter out for some locations Saturday afternoon and evening.

KSEA . High clouds at times this evening. Ceilings will gradually lower tonight with low clouds developing Saturday morning as a weak front moves into the area. Southerly wind 4-8 knots. Schneider/18

MARINE. A weak front will reach the area late tonight then fall apart on Saturday. There could be a few hours of small craft advisory strength southerly winds tonight and Saturday morning for the northernmost inner Coastal Waters zone as well as portions of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Northern Inland Waters but it looks pretty marginal. Current obs show only Race Rocks getting close to SCA criteria while all other obs sites well below thresholds and as such current thinking remains valid and will opt to leave headlines as they are.

A stronger frontal system will cross the area Saturday night and Sunday. This system should bring gale force southerly winds to the Coastal Waters. Gales force southerly winds are also possible for the entrances to the Strait and Northern Inland Waters but this looks more marginal.

Strong onshore flow will follow the front later Sunday and Sunday night with gale force west winds for the Coastal Waters, the Strait, and Admiralty Inlet with small craft advisory strength winds all other waters. Seas over the Coastal Waters will briefly build to 20-24 feet Sunday afternoon or early Sunday evening. As there is still a bit of time before this occurs . will allow future shifts to make the call on any headlines.

Onshore flow will ease on Monday then become light southeasterly on Tuesday in advance of a weak front. The aforementioned weak front will move into the area around Tuesday night then fall apart on Wednesday as it moves inland. Schneider/18

HYDROLOGY. No river flooding is expected over the next 7 days.

SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WA . None. PZ . Small Craft Advisory from 10 PM this evening to 9 AM PST Saturday for Northern Inland Waters Including The San Juan Islands.
