Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 255 PM PST Fri Jan 17 2020

SYNOPSIS. A front will arrive overnight with lowland rain and mountain snow. Cooler air along Hood Canal and in Whatcom county should allow snow to fall for awhile before turning to rain overnight. The snow level will rise over the weekend. A typical weather pattern with lowland rain and mountains snow is likely for next week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. A winter weather advisory and 1-3 inches of snow is in the forecast for the Hood Canal area as well as Whatcom county for tonight. Elsewhere across the lowlands the switch to rain should happen pretty quickly. Another shot of heavy snow is in store for the mountains. The snow level will rise through Sunday and the 850mb temp will peak around +5c--but rainfall will taper off as a weak ridge builds on Sunday. A front will probably move through the area on Monday but the system is likely to be weak.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. There will be a few periods of rain next week as weather systems move through the region. Gales will probably occur over the coastal waters and the system around midweek looks a little blustery. GEFS has the 850mb temp around -2c Tuesday and then warming to around +3c next Thursday--but easterly flow into the passes should keep the snow level below the passes most of the time and the pattern looks progressive.

AVIATION. A warm front will spread rain (south to north) across western WA tonight (with snow over Hood Canal and western Whatcom county). Clouds are a mixed bag with patches of IFR to MVFR cigs. Expect gusty S/SE winds along the coast tonight. Low ceilings will expand late tonight through Sat morning as a cold front moves inland. 33

KSEA . Rain spreading north this evening. S winds becoming SE/E tonight to 10 kt. MVFR cigs likely. 33

MARINE. A strong frontal system will bring another round of gales to most waters tonight and Saturday. Winds will ease Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile, seas at the Coastal Waters will build to around 13-19 feet on Saturday then subside on Sunday. East to southeast flow will linger into early next week with low pressure offshore. 33

HYDROLOGY. After heavy snow in the mountains, the snow level will rise through Sunday. However, precip tapers off as it warms up so that is good. Naturally the Skokomish River in Mason County is the river to watch if the models become wetter Sunday and Monday.

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.
