Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 205 PM PST Sun Feb 28 2021

SYNOPSIS. A series of weak upper level disturbances will bring periods of light lowland rain and mountain snow through mid-week with seasonal temperatures. A pattern change late in the second half of the week will lead to warming temperatures and a return of wet weather to Western Washington by the end of the week.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Light showers/drizzle continues across portions of the Olympic Peninsula this afternoon. An upper level ridge axis continues to slide over the region at this hour as an upper level shortwave digs southward out of the Gulf of Alaska. While this has led to drier conditions with a few breaks in the clouds in the Puget Sound region, light showers continue along the outer coast. Light showers will linger along the coast into the day Monday as upper level flow splits tomorrow, sending the upper low south toward the California coast and ejecting a weak disturbance across Western Washington. Hi- res and ensemble guidance have trended drier with this disturbance for Monday and Tuesday - with any showers likely to be scattered in nature. The upper level pattern will amplify on Wednesday as an upper level trough digs out of the Gulf of Alaska and ridging builds over the Great Basin. The highest POPs will remain over the Olympic Peninsula through the period.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Warming trend will be in place at the beginning of the period with temperatures potentially approaching 60 degrees F in some spots on Thursday. The upper level ridge axis will break down and shift eastward as the aforementioned upper level shortwave trough ejects across the region Friday. This will bring a return to wet weather for the region for the weekend, with ensembles favoring a mean trough over the northwest into early next week. Temperatures will return to normal for early March with the upper level pattern shift by the weekend.

Pullin

AVIATION. Westerly flow aloft becoming southwesterly tonight as a weak upper ridge axis shifts east of the Cascades. Low levels will gradually dry tonight as the flow turns weakly offshore. High and mid level moisture will continue to stream across the region as an upper trough remains poised offshore into Monday. MVFR ceilings across Western Washington are expected to become VFR across much of the interior overnight tonight. Low clouds are likely to persist near the coast and locally across the Southwest Interior into Monday morning.

KSEA . MVFR ceilings gradually lifting to VFR tonight and continuing into Monday with plentiful high and mid level clouds streaming across the area. Surface winds southerly less than 10 knots becoming southeasterly tonight.

27

MARINE. A weak cold front offshore will move onshore during the day Monday and dissipate as it does so. A warm front will brush the waters on Wednesday with the trailing cold front reaching the area on Friday. Onshore flow behind Monday's front could bump westerlies in the Strait of Juan de Fuca to around advisory levels. Otherwise, winds across inland waters will remain under small craft advisory levels for the most part until a potential stronger front arrives around the end of the week. Small craft advisory conditions will be likely over the coastal waters in the week ahead as seas build back above 10 feet and weak fronts periodically boost winds. A front on Friday could bring gales to coastal waters, but confidence is not high at this time.

27

HYDROLOGY. Light rainfall amounts over the next week will preclude the threat for river flooding.
