Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 943 AM PDT Mon Jul 6 2020

UPDATE. Forecast remains largely on track with some light rain showers moving into the coastal areas this morning per latest NWS radar imagery. As a result, made a quick update to account for these showers lingering across the Olympic Peninsula this morning. Otherwise, the shallow cloud deck across most of the region continues to gradually scatter. Shower activity will be generally confined to the Olympic Peninsula and the Cascades, though a light shower or two may develop across portions of the lowlands later this afternoon ahead of the advancing disturbance. The remaining short/long term sections from the previous discussion remain valid and follow below, with updated marine and aviation sections after.

Cullen

SYNOPSIS. A series of weak weather systems will bring periodic chances for scattered showers this week with near to slightly below normal temperatures.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Next in a series of troughs will approach the coast by the afternoon and then move inland this evening into early Tuesday. As trough moves inland, a few showers will be possible this afternoon, mainly across the mountains. Cannot rule out an isolated thunderstorm in the north Cascades near the Canadian border, but not expecting widespread activity.

Onshore flow will increase tonight with more widespread stratus coverage by Tuesday morning. Mostly cloudy skies will prevail across most of the area with afternoon temperatures topping out in the low to mid 60s. As upper level trough lingers across the area, a few showers will be possible but they'll likely be pretty hit or miss and won't amount to much.

Trough exits Tuesday night with a brief period of weak ridging for Wednesday. This should lead to a mostly dry day and some afternoon sunshine after morning clouds scatter out. Temperatures will warm several degrees with most inland locations nearing the 70 degree mark.

CEO

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Extended period will be characterized by . you guessed it . additional upper level troughs. Next in the series moves across the area Thursday afternoon into night with cooler temperatures and the possibly of scattered showers. After a brief period of weak ridging for Friday, another trough moves across the area for the weekend. Differences remain in the timing of this front so have kept with chance for showers for most of the weekend until this can be resolved. Slightly below normal temperatures will likely result.

CEO

AVIATION. Mostly cloudy skies, generally VFR, for most TAF sites this morning should give way to partly to mostly sunny skies this afternoon. This should be the rule then into the overnight hours before next marine push lowers cigs back to MVFR towards daybreak Tuesday. Winds S at 8-12kts, with some gusts possible near CLM this evening during stronger westerly push down the Strait.

KSEA . Clouds will break up some into the afternoon hours with VFR conditions into much of the overnight period tonight. A marine push will likely lead to the lowering of cigs back to MVFR towards daybreak Tuesday. Winds S around 10kts.

Kovacik

MARINE. No changes were made to the current marine forecast; A small craft advisory will remain in place for the central and eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca this afternoon and evening. Previous forecast discussion remains below for reference:

Increasing onshore flow later today as another weak upper trough moves ashore. Periods of onshore flow are likely through the week ahead as the weather pattern continues to send weak upper troughs toward the region.

Kovacik

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 from 4 PM this afternoon to 3 AM PDT Tuesday for Central U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca-East Entrance U.S. Waters Strait Of Juan De Fuca.

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.
