... A change to wet and cooler weather is in store for western
Washington...

Today will be the last day of dry weather with above normal
temperatures. Tonight... a change in the weather pattern will
begin. The dome of high pressure that has prevailed over the
region will give way... allowing wet and cooler conditions to
become established over the area.

Friday through this weekend will be wet across western Washington.
Rain will become locally heavy at times... especially in the
mountains... on Saturday. Rainfall amounts during the two day
period ending at 5 am PDT Sunday are forecast to be in the 1 to
2.5 inch range for most areas but the south facing slopes of the
Olympics and Cascades could receive 3 to 5 inches of rain. This
amount of rain will likely end or help reduce the size of the
ongoing wildfires in the mountains.

Daytime temperatures will be below normal Friday through this
weekend. It is likely that most lowland sites will fail to reach
70 degrees this weekend... especially on Sunday.

It will also become locally windy on Saturday due to a strong
front moving across the area. Some southerly wind prone places on
the coast and in the northwest interior could have gusts in the 45
to 50 mph range.

Those planning outdoor activities in the mountains this weekend
should pay close attention to the latest forecasts from the
National Weather Service.

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
230 PM PDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Synopsis...a front just off the coast will bring rain to the coast 
overnight. Friday will be a rainy day across western Washington with 
the front moving slowly across the region. A stronger frontal system 
will arrive Saturday with rather blustery weather expected. An upper 
level trough will shift over the region through the middle of next 
week. 


&& 


Short term...clouds will increase tonight and a front just offshore 
will spread rain on to the coast. Rain will reach the inland portion 
of western Washington by daybreak Friday and Friday should be a rainy day over 
western Washington. We may see a break in the rain Friday night before a second 
front arrives Saturday...which looks stronger. Total rainfall from 
the front Friday and the stronger frontal system on Saturday should 
be in the 1-3 inch range for much of western Washington...perhaps higher up 
around Mount Baker and of course less around Port Angeles. It will 
be blustery Saturday with gales possible for the marine areas and 
wind advisories possible over land. 


Long term...an upper level trough will shift through the Pacific 
northwest through the first half of the week. The snow level in the 
mountains ought to bottom out around 6000 feet and lowland temperatures will 
be below normal. There will be showers at times...but also some 
partly sunny periods. 


&& 


Aviation...SW flow aloft will continue over West Washington this evening. 
Moisture will increase in the SW flow after 05z with ceilings broken-ovc060- 
100 developing. A weak front will move up over the area from the SW 
which will bring light rain and MVFR ceilings to the coast after 08z and 
to the West Washington interior after 12z. There could be some local IFR ceilings 
along the coast. Behind the front...ceilings should lift to bkn030-050 
Friday afternoon. 


Ksea...good VFR conditions through 05z with scattered-broken cirrus over the 
area. Moisture from an approaching front will allow ceilings bkn070-100 
to develop after 05z. Ceilings are expected to lower below bkn050 after 
12z with some light rain developing. Surface winds will remain 
southerly 4-8 knots. Kam 


&& 


Marine...a weak surface ridge will remain over the Washington coast through 
Friday while lower pressure continues over East Washington. This will keep 
onshore pressure gradients weak...although there is still a fair 
likelihood of borderline Small Craft Advisory west winds in the 
central and eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca this evening. 


A series of frontal systems will move across the region Friday into 
early next week. These systems will increase the southerly flow over 
Washington waters with Small Craft Advisory winds likely at times. A weak front moving NE 
across the coastal waters Friday could generate borderline Small Craft Advisory S 
winds over the northern coastal waters. 


The 12z models are consistent with earlier runs indicating another 
stronger frontal system will move north across West Washington and the coastal 
waters Saturday...followed by a trough moving rapidly across the 
area from the west Saturday afternoon. The GFS and uw-WRF show gale 
force winds over parts of the coastal waters as well as the 
central/east Strait...Puget Sound sound...and the north inland waters. The 
afternoon forecast is based largely on the uw-WRF. This looks like 
an unusually strong system for August. 


An active pattern will continue Sunday and Monday with Small Craft Advisory winds 
mainly over the coastal waters. Kam 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory tonight central and east Strait 
of Juan Delaware fuca. Gale watch Saturday central and east Strait...north 
inland waters...Puget Sound sound and Hood Canal...coastal zones 153 156 
173 176.
