SYNOPSIS
Strong frontal system moving into Western Washington this weekend bringing moderate to heavy rain, mountain snow, and gusty winds to the area. Upper level ridge building in behind the front Monday will continue to build Tuesday before moving east Wednesday. A weakening system will move through later Wednesday into Thursday. Another upper level ridge will try to build Friday.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH MONDAY/
Satellite imagery shows high clouds over Western Washington this morning. Fog formed in a few places before the clouds rolled in. Olympia and Shelton have visibility a half mile of less at 3 AM/11z. Temperatures are mostly in the 30s over the interior and in the lower 40s along the coast.

Next system, a warm front, reaching Western Washington today.
Rain developing along the coast this morning with rain spreading inland this afternoon. There could be a little cool air trapped along the east slopes of the Olympics, around the Hood Canal and up in Whatcom county for the precipitation to start as rain but the increasing southerly winds will warm the air mass up enough to turn the precipitation to all rain by early afternoon. Snow levels will be low to start out with in the mountains, 1000 to 2000 feet, with the snow levels rising to around 3500 feet late in the day in the Olympics and South Cascades. New snow amounts in the mountains ranging from 2 to 4 inches in the Olympics to 3 to 11 inches in the Cascades with the higher amounts near Mount Rainier. Winds increasing in the usual locations with a warm front, coast and Northwest Interior including Whidbey Island and Admiralty Inlet. Winds getting strong enough for a wind advisory beginning in the morning along the coast and early afternoon hours for the locations in the interior. Southeast winds with gusts as high as 45 mph in the forecast. Highs today in the mid 40s over the interior. A little warmer on the coast with the warm air arriving earlier with highs in the lower 50s.

Warm front remaining over the area tonight and weakening. Snow levels rising to 5500 to 6500 feet in the Cascades and 7000 feet in the Olympics. Some additional snow in the evening for the pass elevations in the evening before the precipitation turns over to rain. Tough call in the passes on precipitation type. Surface gradients are easterly which will pull in a thin layer of cold air right near the surface of the passes. 925 and 850 mb winds are southwesterly which opens up the possibility of the cold air remaining trapped near the surface ( would like to see more westerly winds aloft to scour or eliminate the cold air in the passes. Have put a chance of freezing rain in for Stevens and Snoqualmie pass overnight. Winds easing along the coast early in the evening and over the interior around midnight. Lows in the upper 30s to mid 40s.

Trailing cold front moving northwest to southeast across Western Washington Sunday ending up in Northern Oregon late in the day.
Precipitation rates easing in the afternoon. Snow levels dropping slightly in the afternoon but still remaining above 5000 feet keeping the threat of minor river flooding going in a couple of locations. See hydrology section for move details. With the front moving into Northern Oregon cross Cascade gradients remain negative so the possibly of the shallow layer of cold air near the surface in the passes remains so will have a chance of freezing rain in the passes again Sunday. Highs in the lower to mid 50s.

Front continues to weaken and move southeast Sunday night. Weak upper level trough moving into Western Washington keeping at least a chance of showers in the forecast. Snow levels remaining above the passes and the cross Cascade gradient goes flat keeping the precipitation type just rain in the passes. Lows in the upper 30s to mid 40s.

Upper level trough moving southeast out of the area Monday afternoon with a weak upper level ridge building offshore. Shower chances decreasing as the day wears on. Highs a little cooler, in the mid 40s to lower 50s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
Upper level ridge offshore continuing to build and moves into Western Washington Tuesday for a dry day. The ridge shifts east Wednesday with a weakening front approaching the area. Front moving through Wednesday night into Thursday. Another upper level ridge will try to build over the area Friday. Models are all over the place for the weekend after this one. Temperatures near normal with highs mostly in the mid to upper 40s and lows in the 30s. Felton

AVIATION
A frontal system will move into the region today, bringing another round of widespread rainfall to the area. Flow aloft is westerly. Mostly VFR early this morning across the region, except for terminals in fog (KPWT, KOLM) which have dropped down to IFR/LIFR overnight. MVFR to IFR conditions becoming more widespread as rain spreads across the area today - most likely between 14-16Z for terminals along the coast and between 16-19Z for terminals across the interior. Breezy S/SE winds will pick up through the morning hours, with gusts up to 30-35 kt for airfields such as KHQM and KBLI. Winds will gradually ease through the evening into Sunday.

KSEA...VFR conditions this morning, with high clouds streaming overhead. Widespread rain looks to move into the terminal by 17-19Z, likely lowering conditions to MVFR and even IFR at times throughout the day. Winds will be from the S/SE and will increase to 7-12 kt through the morning hours. 14

MARINE
A sub 990 mb low pressure system will track just north of Haida Gwaii today and will bring a front across the area waters.
Winds will increase through the morning hours, with gale force winds expected for the Coastal Waters, East Entrance to the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Admiralty Inlet, and the Northern Inland Waters. Meanwhile, southerly to southeasterly winds along the Puget Sound waters and West Entrance of the Strait will become breezy with Small Craft Advisories in effect. Winds will gradually ease tonight into Sunday as high pressure starts to move back into the coastal waters. Winds will remain rather calm through the first part of the week under the influence of high pressure. A front looks to approach the area waters near midweek.

Seas 7 to 9 ft across the coastal waters will build to around 13 to 18 ft tonight before gradually subsiding back to 10 ft throughout the day Sunday. Seas will then continue to subside to 3 to 5 ft by Monday-Tuesday before building back up to 8-11 ft as the next system approaches close to midweek. 14

HYDROLOGY
The Chehalis river at Porter has dropped below flood stage and the warning has come to an end.

A brief lull in activity continues early this morning before the next frontal system brings another round of rain and mountain snow later today. Snow levels start off between 1000 and 2000 feet then rise to 5500 to near 7000 feet tonight. Forecast rainfall totals are similar to the last run with mountain locations ranging from 2 to 3 inches with local higher amounts.

Antecedent conditions of high soil moisture and high river levels are favorable for the potential of some new flooding. The forecast amount of rain with higher snow level will drive significant river rises in a few locations but for most areas it will not result in flooding. The most likely river to flood is the Skokomish where a flood watch is out for Mason County. There is a low chance of flooding in additional areas, mainly for the Snoqualmie River and the Chehalis River Basins. A Flood Potential Outlook remains out for King, Thurston, Lewis, and Grays Harbor counties. JBB/Felton

Seattle rainfall for the month of December through the 8th is 5.78 inches. The normal fort the entire month is 5.72 inches.
