Update for aviation section...

Synopsis Decreasing isolated showers in the north today with
scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms in the south willamette
valley, coast range and cascades this afternoon and evening.

Onshore flow will bring low clouds into the willamette valley
tonight and Wednesday. Gradual warming is expected Wednesday and
Thursday with the main threat for showers and isolated
thundershowers over the cascades in the afternoons.

Short term Today through Thursday... Upper low off southern oregon
coast will drift slowly southeast tonight and will be over southwest
oregon by Wednesday morning. As a result there are two areas of
light precipitation which have persisted through the day. One is
associated with wrap around deformation to the north of the low over
southwest washington and extreme northern oregon. This is producing
very light stratiform rain sprinkles and the second area of
precipitation this morning is over southwest oregon associated with
the instability near the upper low. In between these areas is some
breaks with not significant showers. Showers and a slight chance of
thunderstorms will continue along the cascades, foothills and mainly
southern south central willamette valley this evening until after
sunset. The cloud cover has limited the sunshine in the south
keeping temperatures at eugen well below normal.

On Wednesday the low will move southeast, but enough wrap around
moisture and instability will remain for a few showers over the
cascades and foothills and even a slight chance of a thunderstorm.

Thursday the low drops south and we are in more northwest flow with a
few week disturbances moving down toward oregon. This will keep the
threat of showers and isolated thunderstorms over the cascades but
the coast and valleys should be mostly dry. Schneider

Long term Friday night through Tuesday... Models are in agreement
that another shortwave will drop south in the northerly flow with a
cut off low developing over northwest oregon Friday for more showers
and isolated thunderstorms. That low moves slowly south Saturday,but
a trough remains around the area Sunday with the biggest
shower thunderstorm threat over the cascades. It appears that we will
remain in that pattern through early next week with mostly dry
conditions in the valleys and mountain showers. Schneider

Aviation GenerallyVFR across the area this evening with light
scattered rain showers. The upper level low off the southwest oregon
coast will continue to move to the south-southeast tonight with
northwest flow in it's wake. Expect CIGS to lower to MVFR along the
coast after 09z tonight under northwest low-level flow. MVFR
conditions also likely to spread into inland sites between 10z-12z
wed. Conditions should improve toVFR late Wed morning.

Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions expected this evening through
about 10z. Expect MVFR CIGS to move into the terminal and eastern
approach near kttd between 10z-12z with CIGS around 015-025 feet.

Cigs expected to lift toVFR late Wed morning. Tw

Marine Surface low was located about 50 nm west of heceta
head at 20z. The low is expected to move inland near CAPE blanco
late this afternoon. The 12z model runs in good agreement
showing the wind backing to the north as the low tracks southeast.

Small craft advisory level speeds develop mid to late afternoon.

Strongest wind will be beyond 20 nm, with gusts to 30 kt likely
this evening through wed. Small craft advisory conditions likely
to persist over the outer zones through wed. Speeds expected to
fall just below criteria for the inner zones wed. Have adjusted
the small craft advisories to show a longer duration for the
outer waters and ending it for the inner waters 12z wed. This
northerly wind pattern continues through at least fri, with small
craft advisory conditions to persist over the outer zones.

Seas will be in the 11 to 13 foot range through this evening and
then ease to 10 to 11 ft overnight. Seas hold at or near 10 ft
wed. Guidance shows seas exceeding 10 ft again Fri as the next
low pressure area along the british columbia coast drops south.

Seas then fall just below 10 ft Sat and then to around 5 ft sun.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
