Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 821 PM PDT Wed Apr 1 2020

UPDATE. The current forecast remains on track and minimal changes were made for this evening. As expected, shower activity has largely diminished with the loss of daytime heating. Mostly dry conditions expected overnight.

Pullin

AVIATION. VFR conditions expected through much of the period at all terminals. Low stratus/patchy fog will be possible overnight, mainly at KHQM and KOLM which could temporarily reduce conditions by daybreak Thursday. VFR conditions will resume Thursday morning and continue through the remainder of the period, outside of any SHRA Thursday afternoon. Confidence remains low in any activity directly affecting a terminal, however brief reductions in vsbys and CIGs expected near or under any SHRA.

KSEA . VFR conditions expected through the period with light and variable winds overnight becoming south-southwesterly after daybreak on Thursday. SCT SHRA is expected to develop once again across western Washington Thursday afternoon, but confidence is low in any activity directly affecting the terminal. Brief reductions in vsbys and CIGs expected near or under any SHRA.

Pullin

MARINE. Low pressure over the region will be gradually replaced by weak high pressure Thursday and Friday. Weather systems are likely to miss the area and track toward northern California around the end of the week. Western Washington should see the northerly flow today turn to light onshore flow Thursday. Pressure gradients Friday and Saturday look pretty light as a weather system misses the area well offshore and then tracks well to the south.

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 300 PM PDT Wed Apr 1 2020/

SYNOPSIS . Lowland rain and mountain snow will continue off and on for the next several days as a series of weak systems pass through the area. Temperatures will remain below normal throughout the period.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY/ . Current radar starting to fill up with showers over portions of W WA this afternoon. East of the Sound . showers seem to be generally more likely to be found over terrain . although a few strays have ended up over the lowlands as well. West of the Sound sees most of the action over southwestern portions of the Olympic peninsula and along the SW coast. While not seeing any lighting strikes associated with any of these cells yet . there have been reports of brief periods of small hail and ice pellets.

The cause for all this is the back end of an upper level trough pushing through W WA today coupled with some instability. This activity looks to persist into the evening hours before tapering off While it has not happened yet. cannot rule out a rumble of thunder this afternoon and evening. A brief break in the action is expected late tonight and into early Thursday morning before a weak shortwave dips down into the area which may also trigger another round of afternoon/evening showers although given the weak nature of the system . coverage is expected to be less. The short term wraps up sounding like a broken record as things dry out for Thursday night only for another upper trough to swing in for Friday. QPF values for this system look akin to those of the weak Thursday system . and as such coverage should not be terribly widespread and may end up being mostly terrain driven . with a focus more on the mountains and higher elevations. Thanks to all of these troughs . temperatures throughout the short term forecast period will remain below normal. 18

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/ . A weak upper level ridge looks to set up shop over W WA Saturday with both models and ensembles Although it seems unlikely. still left some PoPs in place to better blend in with surrounding offices. The ridge pushes on Saturday night and is replaced by an upper level low plunging south from the Canadian coast. Most of the moisture associated with this feature initially remains off the coast or to the south in OR . but models do suggest some wrap around moisture being pushed up into W WA Saturday night/Sunday bringing another round of precip. Models diverge at this point with the GFS actually proving the wetter solution and keeping moisture from both this system as well as from another upper low over northern Alberta over the area keeping PoPs in for the remainder of the long term. The ECMWF seems a little more on the money keeping W WA in a no-mans-land . or no- rains-land as it were . between the two systems . keeping moisture from these systems north of and south of the CWA. Tried to lean into the drier ECWMF solution a little bit more but the discrepancy between the two models still results in a middle road that puts slight chance to low end chance PoPs over the area. Temps will still remain a little cooler than normal for the first part of the long term but will steadily see daytime highs increase toward the end of the forecast period . with highs climbing back into the mid 50s. 18

HYDROLOGY . An unsettled pattern will continue through the week ahead, but the progressive nature of the pattern and precipitation amounts are not expected to lead to flooding concerns.
