I live near the North end of Lake Washington and the jewelweed is very common. A few years ago they (the city or county?) made some effort to get rid of it from wetlands in my neighborhood but apparently not this year (or they could not catch up). They did remove closely related Himalayan balsam.I'm getting the white stripes too and I'm on the East side of Lake Washington (Rose Hill, Kirkland). Supposedly jewelweed is not supposed to be here and the county wants to be notified if found.
