Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 714 PM PST Thu Feb 27 2020

UPDATE. With the exception of some stratus along the immediate coastline, mostly clear skies prevail across the region this evening for an opportunity to catch the tandem of the crescent Moon and Venus in the evening sky before they set around 10 PM PST. Clouds will increase on Friday with rain reaching the coast in the afternoon and spreading into the interior during the evening hours. Showers and breezy conditions continue into Saturday with several inches of snow expected in the Cascade passes. Current forecasts look on track and no updates planned this evening. 27

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will shift eastward tonight and a weather system will move into the area on Friday evening with lowland rain, mountain snow and breezy conditions through Saturday. A brief break in the weather is still expected on Sunday, before another series of systems move through early next week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. The rest of this evening and into midday Friday looks to be mild and relatively inactive. More sunshine will prevail as weak ridging builds into the area. Temperatures in the mid 50s are expected on Friday. Patchy fog is possible again on Friday morning as the clear conditions persist overnight.

Rain should arrive at the coast by late Friday afternoon into the evening and spread inland overnight into Saturday morning as the frontal system approaches. Showers will likely persist throughout the day on Saturday in the unstable air behind the cold front. This instability is still meager at best, but could be enough to produce a few thunderstorms and flashes of lightning at the coast. The main impacts from this system seem to be confined to the Cascades and the passes as snow levels drop to around 1200-2000 feet on Saturday with decent accumulations that may impact travel. Anyone with travel plans across the passes this weekend should continue to monitor the forecast and be checking WSDOT road conditions before travel. Conditions will also need to be monitored for possible convergence zone development with a westerly push down the Strait of Juan De Fuca occurring.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. The next system will arrive on Monday into Tuesday and again yield lowland rain and possibly impactful mountain snow. Model ensemble guidance suggest the winds picking up in this timeframe and will need to be monitored for changes. Wednesday and Thursday also look to be fairly active with not much of a break in sight between systems. Confidence in additional details past this point is low.

Kristell/Pullin

AVIATION. Low clouds persist along the coast while inland areas are seeing VFR conditions. The flow aloft is westerly. Patchy low clouds or fog may form near the sound early Friday morning. A cold front will bring rain and gusty winds Friday afternoon and evening. MVFR cigs possible Friday night as onshore flow increases. 33

KSEA . VFR conditions expected this evening. Light N/NE winds developing 00-06Z to 5 kt. Patchy low clouds or fog may form near the sound by 12z. Rain developing Friday afternoon or early evening with a cold front. 33

MARINE. Weak high pressure will keep winds generally light tonight. Seas will remain around 10 feet at the Coastal Waters. Winds will increase on Friday with a stronger frontal system. This system will bring Small Craft Advisory winds to all waters. Strong onshore flow will follow Friday night into Saturday. Another strong cold front will arrive on Monday. 33

HYDROLOGY. Due to the progressive nature of the storms entering the area this weekend into early next week, no river flooding is forecast at this time.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
