Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 303 AM PST Mon Jan 18 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure aloft builds over the region and remains in place much of the first half of the week, though a weak front will clip the area late Tuesday. Another disturbance arrives Thursday. A stronger front likely arrives next weekend with cooler temperatures and lower snow levels.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. High pressure and offshore flow will lead to dry conditions across western WA through Tuesday. Expect patchy low clouds and fog in the interior this morning with skies becoming partly sunny this afternoon. Highs will be close to normal in the mid to upper 40s. Lows will be chilly overnight and in the 30s. The ridge will flatten over WA on Tuesday while a weak trough cuts through B.C. This trough will clip western WA Tuesday night for a chance of light showers, mainly in the north interior and north Cascades. High pressure rebuilds on Wednesday for another dry day. 33

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. We'll see another round of showers on Thursday while a cool upper low tracks south down the coast. Precipitations amounts look light with just a few hundredths of an inch over the lowlands. However, snow levels will be low, around 1500-2000 ft, and could see a light rain/snow mix in areas near the Cascades. Cool northerly flow will prevail Friday and Saturday with temperatures trending below normal - highs in the lower to mid 40s and lows in the 20s to lower 30s.

The following system on Sunday shows some potential for lowland snow due to low snow levels (around 500-1000ft). Around half of the ECMWF and GFS ensemble members show snow but amounts look spotty and light. NBM at Sea-Tac has a 60% chance of snow but only a 25% chance of seeing accumulations greater than an inch. It'll all depend on timing (snow levels, moisture, temperatures) which is all still uncertain. In any case, snow looks likely but impactful snow amounts seem low at the moment. The threat for more lowland snow continues into early next week as snow levels will remain low, with more systems headed our way. 33

AVIATION. Northwesterly flow aloft becoming northerly tonight then westerly on Tuesday as upper level ridge moves through the area. Light flow in the lower levels.

Ceilings 3500-4500 feet with local ceilings below 500 feet and visibility 1-3sm in fog until around 20z. just scattered clouds this afternoon and tonight. Local ceilings below 500 feet and visibility less than 1 mile developing after 06z mainly over the Southwest Interior.

KSEA . Ceilings near 4500 feet. Ceilings below 1000 feet possible 15z-18z. Scattered clouds this afternoon. Northerly wind 4 to 8 knots through tonight.

MARINE. High pressure will remain over the waters through Wednesday. A front will dissipate just north of the area Tuesday night. A weak system will arrive Thursday with high pressure rebuilding again Friday.

Small craft advisory today for the coastal waters and West Entrance to the Strait of Juan de Fuca for 10 to 12 foot swells. Swell subsiding tonight. Small craft advisory winds possible over the outer coastal waters Tuesday night behind dissipating front and again Thursday.

HYDROLOGY. No river flooding is expected through the next seven days.

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.
