Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 859 PM PDT Thu Sep 16 2021

SYNOPSIS. A strong frontal system is approaching the Western Washington area tonight. This system will be moving through the area Friday, but active weather is expected through the weekend. For this weekend, expect high rainfall amounts, windy conditions, rises in area rivers, thunderstorms, and extreme high elevation snowfall. Things will quiet down for the early portion of next week, and the next weather system is expected mid week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. Current radar trends are showing light echoes well offshore as a strong frontal system approaches the area. Light rain will begin overnight and increase in intensity throughout the day. No additional forecast updates have been made this evening, and thus, the rest of the previous forecast discussion can be found below, organized by impact.

Kristell

Winds: Southerly winds will be picking up after midnight as the cold front approaches the area. Winds along the coast are expected to be picking up around midnight, whereas it will be during the early morning for more interior locations. While winds will be picking up everywhere the windiest spots will be the coast, San Juan Islands, Island County, as well as Western Whatcom and Skagit Counties. At the aforementioned locations sustained speeds of 25-35 mph with gusts 40-50 mph are expected, particularly adjacent to the waters. Winds inland will be significantly less than directly near the waters, with sustained speeds 15-25 mph and gusts 25-35 mph. With trees still having their leaves and being weak from the summer heat we anticipate there to be some tree damage and power outages in the region. Once the front moves through later Friday winds will begin to ease but breezy conditions are expected on Saturday.

Precipitation: Rain will begin to move into the area Friday morning, beginning at the coast and moving inland throughout the day. Rainfall intensity will initially be light, but is expected to pick up as the front moves through. In general 1-2 inches is expected to fall between Friday and Sunday with the majority falling on Friday and early Saturday. As usual the coast and mountains will see higher rainfall amounts with 2-4 inches and 4-6 inches respectively. With soils being so dry and compact there will be a bit of a delay in water being soaked up by the ground. As a result, ponding of water is possible especially at the start of the heaviest rain. Urban flooding is also a concern if storm drains are not cleared out or become blocked due to debris created from the winds. No river flooding is expected, see hydrology section below for more details. Snow levels on Friday will be well above 10,000 feet, but is expected to be falling to around 6000 feet by Saturday. Snowfall and accumulation is likely above the 6000 foot level. And with high winds white out conditions are expected. No snow at any of the highway passes.

Thunderstorms: After the front moves through on Friday, the probability of thunderstorms will increase area wide. With Saturday being the most likely day for storms to develop. Although the threat will remain there for Sunday as well. In addition to lightning these storms will likely create heavier rainfall, small hail and higher wind gusts as they move over an area.

Butwin

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. The start of the long term should be much quieter than this weekend. A few shortwaves will pass through creating for a very slight chance of light rain showers and and clouds, but nothing that would be very impactful. By midweek the next frontal system is expected to move through the area. But this one is expected to be much more tame and more attuned to what we have been seeing the last few weeks. That said temperatures will be feeling much more autumnal with lows in the 40s and 50s and highs in the 60s for much of the area.

Butwin

AVIATION. A strong frontal system will approach the coast tonight then move into Western Washington Friday. Westerly flow aloft tonight will increase and become southwest Friday. The air mass will be stable. Ceilings will gradually lower after midnight. MVFR developing at the coast, Strait of Juan de Fuca, and north interior Friday morning then spread across most of the interior in the afternoon. Visibilities will be reduced at times in rain on Friday.

KSEA . Increasing high clouds this evening then increasing mid clouds after midnight. Ceilings lowering throughout the day Friday dropping below 3000 feet after 00z Saturday. Light wind becoming southeast overnight then south 8-12 knots Friday. Winds gusting 20 to 25 knots after 00z. Felton

MARINE. A vigorous frontal system will bring southerly gales to most waters on Friday, mainly in the afternoon and evening. Small craft advisory strength southerly winds will continue for most waters Friday night easing below small craft advisory strength Saturday. High pressure just off the coast will bring weak onshore flow for Monday and Tuesday.
