Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 245 PM PDT Thu Oct 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. An upper level ridge will remain over the area through Friday before shifting east Saturday. Dry upper level trough will move through Sunday followed by another upper level ridge building next week.

SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Finally starting to see the last of the fog as per both current satellite imagery and looking out the window. Chehalis river valley looks to be the only hold out but should be wrapped up there soon That said. looks like this will put a ding in expected afternoon highs. Current obs show most sites at least in the mid to upper 60s with some isolated spots reaching 70 at the time of this writing. With a few more hours of daytime heating highs should not fall too short of expectations but will likely end up 2-4 degrees short.

Not much change in the forecast as models remain pretty consistent. The ridge currently overhead will slowly start to move eastward tonight as the ridge axis moves inland by Friday morning. With little change in the weather regime . can expect stratus along the coast and fog moving inland overnight tonight and into tomorrow morning Once the AM fog dissipates. haze looks like it might still be an issue as conditions will still be in place to import smoke from CA wildfires Like today. no impacts to air quality are expected given that smoke will remain aloft. The shift in the ridge axis late Friday will bring in air located over the Pacific and thus should limit if not eliminate the threat for haze/smoke starting Saturday. The Friday to Saturday time frame should also see an increase in westerly onshore flow that will also help keep temps in check. Afternoon highs Friday will range from mid 60s along the coast to lower to mid 70s for the interior lowlands while Saturday is a little cooler with highs ranging from the mid 60s again along the coast to the upper 60s to lower 70s for the interior lowlands. 18

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. The long term forecast does not see much in the way of variation either as models remain in good agreement. While a trough is expected to move through Sunday, the system remains dry although it will be accompanied by a marine push that will bring the coolest temps of the forecast period as daytime temps area-wide reach the lower to mid 60s. Upper level ridging resumes Monday for the remainder of the forecast period keeping conditions dry and initiating a small warming trend. Light offshore flow during this time frame will also help contribute to the warming but given its weak nature . temps really only rise into the upper 60s to lower 70s as fall and the shorter days associated with it keep trying to exert influence whenever possible. 18

AVIATION. An upper ridge will remain over the area tonight and Friday with westerly flow aloft and light low level onshore flow. The air mass will be stable and dry except for areas of night and morning low clouds and fog. There will also be smoke aloft at times tonight and Friday.

KSEA . Thin high clouds tonight then fog is likely again Friday morning. There will also be smoke aloft at times tonight and Friday. Northerly wind 3-6 knots. Schneider

MARINE. Light onshore flow will continue for the next several days with weak high pressure over the Offshore Waters and lower pressure inland. Onshore flow will increase a bit around Saturday with small craft advisory strength west winds possible for the Central Strait of Juan de Fuca and the East Entrance. Schneider

HYDROLOGY. No flooding is expected on area rivers through the next 7 days.

CLIMATE. Record high for Seattle today 89 degrees set in 1987. This is by far the warmest October day on record in Seattle with the second warmest day 83 degrees on October 11, 1991. 80 degree plus days in Seattle in October are rare with only 7 since records started in 1945 at Sea-Tac. The last 80 degree plus day in October in Seattle was October 3, 1993 ( 80 degrees ). Felton
