Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 901 PM PST Fri Jan 24 2020

SYNOPSIS. An active weather pattern continues across the region through at least much of next week as a series of weather systems cross the region.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. Just a few updates to the forecast for this evening to better reflect the area of moderate to heavy rain crossing the central Puget Sound region and extending east into the Cascades.

This impulse shifts east of the region overnight with decreasing showers in its wake, but the next system is right behind and move across Western Washington by daybreak. This system is fairly weak and most areas should get another break in the rainfall as weak shortwave ridging aloft slides eastward across the area Saturday evening.

Rain spreads back into the area from the south by late Saturday evening as a deepening surface low over the offshore waters and an associated occluded front lift northeastward. Sunday will be rather wet and fairly windy, especially for spots with some southeast exposure like Whidbey Island northward and along the coast. The pattern remains quite progressive with a 130 knot jet directing yet another system into the area by later Sunday night and Monday. This will be a running theme well into the extended period with a quick progression of systems nearly assuring that there will be some rain every day.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. There are some minor timing and depth differences in the operational runs of the Euro and the GFS next week, but, overall, they are remarkably in rather good agreement with the pattern. Precipitation anomalies from the ensemble means of the models also lend a high degree of confidence in a wet, active pattern continuing through the foreseeable future. River levels and landslide possibilities will need to be monitored. 27

AVIATION. A band of moderate rain stretching across the central Puget Sound and west to just north of KHQM will continue to slowly lift north and gradually weaken tonight, with MVFR to low VFR ceilings and reduced visibilities gradually improving. The next round of rain will spread north and east across the region overnight from 12z onward with a trending to more widespread MVFR probable with this line, and should arrive soon enough to preclude any fog formation in between rounds of rain/clouds. Showers become less frequent and scattering ceilings possible after 20z Sat.

KSEA . Expect ceilings to remain around 2500 ft this this evening and tonight, though possibly lifting closer to VFR for a short period early tonight in between rounds of rain. Expect MVFR conditions again after 12z through daybreak, with some gradual improvement as showers decrease through the day Saturday. 12

MARINE. A fairly disorganized front reaches the area around daybreak Saturday. A stronger front with a surface low will reach Western Washington late Saturday night and gales are possible through Sunday morning. Yet another vigorous disturbances moves through the area Sunday evening and gales are possible with that one too. And then next week promises to be active too with a significant system possible around Monday night and Tuesday.

HYDROLOGY. The Skokomish River remains above flood stage and will likely do so through the weekend. The weather pattern will remain wet into next week as a series of weather systems cross the area. Rivers will continue to run high and there is the potential for additional river flooding next week.

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.
