Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 340 AM PDT Wed Apr 14 2021

SYNOPSIS. Upper level high pressure strengthens through the end of the week with the air mass warming steadily each of the next several days. The warmest temperatures so far this season are expected late in the week as the ridge expands overhead. A weak disturbance arrives early next week to bring a return of rain chances and cooler temperatures.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Another dry day is ahead across Western Washington today, though early morning temperatures at 3 AM range considerably from the mid 30s in wind-sheltered locations to the upper 40s from Everett to Tacoma. The larger scale surface pressure gradient looks to weaken a bit today, which should result in a less windy day for most. However, it'll remain still be breezy this afternoon and evening with northerly winds across the interior of the region. Winds on the coast will be mostly offshore this morning, before returning onshore by early afternoon. The upper low centered over the Great Basin will push eastward by Thursday afternoon, with the ridge then amplifying over the West Coast. This will likely bring afternoon temperatures into the lower 70s for much of the region, warmest from the South Sound southward. The record high temperature for Thursday at Sea-Tac is notably lower than the surrounding days - only 74 degrees - so the forecast of 72 would come closer. Temperatures continue to climb Friday afternoon, generally another 5 degrees warmer than Thursday with temperatures near 70 along the coast and into the mid 70s inland with modest offshore flow developing. Cullen

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Dry and warm conditions continue into the weekend with high pressure remaining firmly in place. Expect many of the warmer locations to reach around 80s degrees Saturday. Latest NBM guidance suggests a 38 percent chance of reaching at least 80 at Sea-Tac, which would tie the record maximum temperature for the date. The record for the date at Olympia is also 80, which matches the current forecast at this time. Sunday is expected to be very similar to Saturday in terms of temperatures, though records are notably warmer. This is a similar story at Bellingham, where the forecast high temperature is around 70 degrees each of Friday through Sunday, but the record highs for the date on Friday and Sunday are much warmer than Saturday's record of 70; NBM guidance here suggests greater than a 75 percent chance that Saturday's record falls.

Given the dry air mass and clear skies, overnight lows are expected to be mostly in the mid to upper 40s; this is a little bit above normal, but only by a few degrees. For those areas that are well-exposed to wind and maintain a consistent breeze each night, however, it may remain warmer. Will continue to refine this in the next few days. Spread among the forecast guidance becomes more pronounced late in the weekend and especially next week as the upper ridge breaks down and ushers in a return of cooler marine air and some rain chances. For now, Monday remains a transition day in the forecast with increasing clouds, cooler temperatures, and rain chances at the coast by late afternoon, followed by more widespread rain chances into Tuesday. Cullen

AVIATION. Northeasterly flow aloft will become more easterly today as an upper level ridge strengthens over British Columbia and an upper level low remains situated across the Great Basin. Meanwhile, northerly winds at the surface will persist throughout the TAF period, becoming breezy 10-20 knots at times for central and southern Puget Sound terminals in the afternoon. Winds will then become lighter during the evening, persisting at 10 kts or less. VFR conditions will persist through the period.

KSEA . VFR through the period. Northerly winds 5-10 kts through the morning, increasing to 10-15 kts this afternoon, with a few gusts to 20 kts possible. Winds will then become light again by the evening. SB

MARINE. High pressure offshore and across the interior NW will continue to interact with a thermal trough along the Pacific Coast today, for northerly flow across the majority of the area waters. N/NE winds look to pick up along the central and southern coastal waters this afternoon for another round of small craft winds. All other waters look to remain just below criteria, however conditions may get a bit breezy, at 10-20 kts, for portions of the Puget Sound waters this afternoon. Winds will ease and become light again across all area waters this evening. Offshore flow will continue into the weekend, though winds currently look to remain rather light over the area waters.

Seas will remain rather benign through the period - and look to remain below 10 ft.

SB

HYDROLOGY . River flooding not expected during the next 7 days.

SEW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WA . None. PZ . Small Craft Advisory from 1 PM this afternoon to 9 PM PDT this evening for Coastal Waters From James Island to Cape Shoalwater out 60 nm.
