Seattle Local Forecast

8-17-17 morning forecast with KING 5 Meteorologist Rich Marriott

Puget Sound Forecast: Patchy fog or low clouds this morning.  Becoming mostly sunny this afternoon with some high clouds. Highs in the mid to upper 70's. Winds light.

Mountain Forecast: Mostly sunny.  Freezing level  13,000 feet. West winds 5-10 mph.

Coast Forecast: Cloudy this morning with areas of fog. Partly sunny this afternoon. Highs in the 60's.  Wind west at 15 mph in the afternoon.

Eastern Washington Forecast: Mostly sunny and continued warm. Highs in the 80's.

DISCUSSION:

Onshore winds have weakened this morning for only a few patchy areas of fog over the interior of western Washington, though it is mostly cloudy along the coast.  Sunshine is headed our way today, however, teh remnants of a weak front will drag through today with some middle and high clouds filtering the sun at times. 

Our ridge of high pressure remains off the coast in the Pacific today. This is keeping our State in a west to northwesterly flow. Occasional weak weather systems will pass by to the north of us occasionally increasing our onshore winds for variations in our morning clouds but mostly sunny afternoons on into next week. Highs should be mainly in the 70's today and into the weekend but should push to near 80 over the interior early next week. There is a chance we may see a few showers around next Thursday.

Computer model runs continue to indicate partly cloudy to clear skies for the eclipse on Monday morning.
