Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 231 PM PDT Tue Jul 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. An upper-level disturbance continues to move across the region today, maintaining plenty of clouds and some showers. After a short break on Wednesday, additional disturbances will rotate across the region on Thursday and again over the weekend, maintaining cooler than normal conditions and a few rounds of precipitation through early next week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. Latest satellite imagery depicts an upper trough axis aligned across the state this afternoon, with a persistent cloud deck and scattered showers. Per latest NWS radar imagery, most showers are organized either across the southern/western parts of the forecast area or in a region of developing convergence across the northern and central Puget Sound. Expect to see the atmosphere begin to dry out in the mid- levels later tonight and into Wednesday as a weak upper ridge of high pressure pushes into the region. This should bring showers largely to an end for most locations, though weak onshore flow will continue tonight and a lingering Puget Sound Convergence Zone may develop and persist through much of the night. Elsewhere, the weak onshore flow should serve to maintain a relatively solid lower cloud deck. For some areas that do begin to scatter out, there may be brief a window for localized fog to develop in the more favored locations toward daybreak, but many locations should instead maintain a more solid cloud deck. With the drying trend and weak onshore gradients into Wednesday, expect morning clouds to eventually give way to increasingly sunny skies by the afternoon. The slightly warmer air mass and decreasing sky cover should allow temperatures to rebound into the lower 70s for the interior lowlands.

However, the break in the weather looks be short-lived as the next upper trough quickly approaches Western Washington late Wednesday. Expect to see an increase in mid-level clouds streaming into the region by Wednesday evening, with some guidance indicating the leading edge of rain reaching the coast during the late afternoon or early evening hours, before advancing inland overnight and into early Thursday. This will likely yield another cool and damp day across the region on Thursday, with rain eventually tapering off from southwest to northeast later in the day. Much of the interior lowlands may be a bit shadowed in the predominantly southwesterly flow, but precipitation amounts up to around half an inch are possible in the more favored terrain of the Olympics and Cascades. Behind this system, another round of higher pressure and warmer temperatures looks likely for Friday with plenty of sun after morning clouds. Of course, the rather progressive weather pattern continues with yet another disturbance quickly following.

Cullen

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. The next weather system will then approach the region over the weekend. Current guidance suggests that this low pressure system may be a bit stronger and better organized that recent systems, with a slightly slower trend in recent model runs. However, there is a significant bit of spread in guidance, likely partially due to the potential influence of a strengthening ridge across the southwestern U.S. Nonetheless, the front is expected to push across Western Washington over the weekend with another round of increasing clouds and precipitation chances. Onshore flow then follows into early next week, with at least some chance of showers (especially across the higher terrain and near the coast), but flow aloft likely becomes more zonal with temperatures returning to near or slightly below normal values closer to midweek.

Cullen

AVIATION. Ceilings are in an attempt to recover to VFR this afternoon, with coverage still ranging from BKN-OVC. This will be the general trend into the overnight hours tonight, however, scattered showers will have the ability to pull ceilings temporarily back down to MVFR through the evening. With onshore flow continuing in the lower levels of the atmosphere, ceilings are expected to drop back to MVFR during the overnight and morning period tonight and Wednesday. Then, similar to today and Monday, ceilings will lift back to VFR and attempt to scatter out some. Winds will remain out the S for most sites at 8-12 kts thru the period, with the exception of W wind at HQM and CLM and a brief period of N wind at PAE this afternoon and evening.

KSEA . VFR ceilings at BKN-OVC into tonight with lowering back to MVFR early Wednesday morning before recovering back to VFR Wednesday afternoon. A few showers possible through this evening. Winds S/SE 8- 12kts.

Kovacik

MARINE. Onshore flow to continue through much of the upcoming forecast period as expansive anticyclone remains the dominant feature over the North Pacific. A passing weather system today has allowed for the development of scattered showers across area waters amidst benign wind and waves as gradients remain weak. In the wake of this passing system, a ridge will advect across the area through the day Wednesday, allowing for a generally drier day and continued light wind and benign wave activity. By late in the day, the next front will begin to bring rain to the offshore waters and perhaps western portions of the Strait. This front will then carry showers east with it through much of Thursday, allowing for another unsettled day. After another brief break on Friday, additional systems will affect the waters through the weekend. Overall, no marine headlines are anticipated in the coming days, with the Central and Eastern Strait hovering near small craft advisory level winds each evening/overnight period, but have opted to cap winds around 20kts provided weak gradients.

Seas will remain calm through the week at generally 2-5 feet.

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.
