Synopsis A ridge of high pressure over the eastern pacific will
gradually nose into the pacific northwest over the next several days.

Weak disturbances topping the ridge will keep variable amounts of
clouds in the area into early next week, before the ridge builds
firmly inland and flow turns offshore late Tuesday through the end of
next week.

Short term Tonight through Monday... A fairly high amplitude
pattern currently resides over the area, with ridging over the
eastern pacific and a closed upper low over the great basin. Onshore
flow and weak warm advection will bring a cloudy start Saturday,
with perhaps sprinkles light rain along coastal and coast range
areas. The upper ridge builds a little farther inland Sunday, and
with the longer nights of fall, expect to see more in the way of
morning fog clouds Sunday morning, before giving way to partly to
mostly sunny skies. Models show one more weak shortwave topping the
ridge late Monday and Monday night, keeping the ridge less than
pristine going into Tuesday. Thereafter, a different story as the
upper ridge builds strongly overhead while a thermal trough extends
northward along the coast. This is covered in the long term
discussion that follows. Drb

Long term Monday night through Saturday... Ridge of high
pressure will continue to build into the area from the NE pacific.

This will bring warmer temperatures into the area. Offshore winds
are looking to start around Tuesday night. Which will prevent
nighttime clouds and fog from forming. There is uncertainty in when
the offshore winds will end, which makes the temperature forecast
for the end of next week more uncertain. -bishop

Aviation Vfr conditions will continue this afternoon and
evening. Expect some fog and low clouds Sat morning bringing ifr
conditions along the coast. MVFR CIGS possible inland, especially
north. A weak disturbance moving southward from bc may produce
some spotty light drizzle or rain Sat morning, mainly along the
coast and coast range.

Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions the remainder of today and
tonight. MVFR CIGS possible Sat morning as well as patchy fog
around 12z-16z.

Marine Northerly winds continue through the next week with
light wind speeds. Winds will likely increase above 20 knots into
small craft range late tues or Wed morning as a thermal trough
builds north along the coast and north winds strengthen.

Seas will run around 6 to 7 feet tonight and remain in the 5 to 6
ft range through the middle of next week. Tw

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
