Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 703 PM PST Thu Feb 20 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry conditions will persist into Friday. A weak front may bring a few light showers on Saturday, with a more robust system expected for Sunday. This system will bring lowland rain and mountain snow to the area, which will linger into Monday. Dry conditions return for Tuesday and last through mid-week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. High pressure and offshore flow continues across western WA. Temperatures will be chilly overnight under clear skies and light winds. Expect lows in the 20s to lower 30s once again.

The ridge will exits east on Friday while the flow aloft becomes more westerly or zonal. A weak system moving into B.C. will spread high clouds into western WA. Otherwise, we'll see one more dry and mild day across the region.

Rain returns late Friday night into Saturday as a weak frontal system clips western WA. Overall, precipitation amounts look light and most areas will see less than 0.10" through the period.

A stronger and wetter Pacific 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 3000 ft, with accumulating snow expected at the higher passes (like Stevens and White Pass). Snoqualmie Pass may see a rain/snow mix. Winds will be gusty (out of the S/SW) as the cold front moves through the interior Sunday afternoon - gusts to 40 mph possible. 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 Stevens Pass. 33

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Showers will linger into Monday as onshore flow continues. An upper level ridge will build inland on Tuesday for a break in the pattern. The ridge may flatten over the Pac NW on Wednesday as a weak front clips the region. High pressure will rebuild late in the week, putting us back in a relatively quiet period of weather. 33

AVIATION. VFR conditions with generally light and variable winds at nearly all TAF sites. Otherwise, fog is expected to develop at and around OLM overnight.

KSEA . VFR conditions expected overnight. Winds are expected to weaken and shift back to an easterly direction ENE to ESE overnight before becoming southerly after daybreak. Speeds below 7kts expected. Increasing high clouds AOA 25k ft Friday.

Kristell

MARINE. Light offshore flow will continue through Friday morning before giving way to light onshore flow during the day. A weakening front will move through the area Saturday, with a second front moving through the area Sunday into Sunday night. The second front will yield increasing winds and seas, with the potential for strong winds spreading from the nearshore waters into the Strait of Juan de Fuca on Sunday. Marine headlines are possible this weekend.

Kristell

HYDROLOGY. River flooding is not expected over the next 7 days.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
