Synopsis Expect mostly sunny skies Sunday, other than some morning
coastal stratus. The next front arrives mon, with increasing chance
of light rain. High pressure builds later tue, and remains over the
region through end of next week. This will allow for dry weather,
with above normal temperatures under some offshore flow.

Short term Today through Tuesday... An upper level ridge will
move onshore over the pac NW later tonight and Sunday, which will
bring a warm and dry end to the weekend. NOAA satellite imagery
showing plenty of mid and high clouds well offshore. But also shows
the low stratus now forming along the coast. These low clouds and
patchy fog, will eventually burn off later this morning. Then will
just have partly to mostly sunny skies with mild temperatures. Not
much fog inland, though will keep mention of patchy fog this am.

The mid high clouds offshore will gradually increase over the region
tonight into Mon am as a weak front approaches. Weak front well to
the northwest today will push into the region later Mon and mon
evening. But, not a lot of moisture with the front. Models in fair
agreement, so will not vary trends much away. Will keep increasing
chance of rain along the coast on mon, and into the interior late in
the day into the evening. But again, with spotty precipitation with
the front, rainfall amounts will be light and sporadic. Still think
best threat of rain will be to the north, and much less threat as
move south towards lane county.

Upper ridge will build over the region on tue, with decreasing
clouds. Will see somewhat warmer temperatures, thanks to increasing
light offshore flow. rockey.

Long term Upper ridge slowly pushes inland Wed and thu, moving
east towards the northern rockies fri. Low level flow remains
offshore Wed through Fri as the inverted surface trough drifts
offshore and weakens. This will bring warmer than normal temps to
the region including the coast, with the warmest days likely to be
wed and thu. By Fri night models in general agreement with pushing a
weak shortwave through the pacific nw, pushing down upper heights
and allowing a weak cold front to move in. While still likely too
dry to carry any sort of mentionable pop, the flattened flow should
still allow some clouds back in, while cooling temps down a few
degrees.

Aviation Vfr conditions inland with patchy ifr conditions
along the coast. Expect stratus to fill in more along the coast
within the next few hours. Still an isolated chance of cigs
developing at one or two sites inland, but expect mostlyVFR
conditions.

Kpdx and approaches... MostlyVFR conditions through the period.

Small chance (less than 20 percent) that MVFR CIGS develop at the
terminal this morning. Bentley

Marine Quiet marine weather continues through Sunday and into
next week with light winds less than 15 knots and seas less than
6 feet. North winds will start to increase late in the day on
Tuesday as the thermal tough builds up the coast. Small craft
strength winds are likely and will begin in the southern waters
before expanding northward. These gusty winds will likely be
short lived as the gradient relaxes and winds switch to offshore
by late in the day Wednesday. Bentley

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.
