Synopsis High pressure will build into eastern washington and
oregon resulting in offshore flow and warmer temps through Thursday.

The next chance for rain comes around Friday, as a weakening cold
front moves into the pac nw. Showers and cooler weather will continue
into the weekend.

Short term Today through Thursday..Patchy fog around in the
southern valley this morning, but that will give way to sunshine by
afternoon as high pressure builds inland and a thermal trough
develops along the coast today and tonight. Pressure gradients are
showing a good offshore trend this morning as offshore flow develops.

This will result in warmer conditions today and Wednesday. Wednesday
should be the warmest day along the coast but models are in good
agreement that a flow reversal will occur along the southern oregon
coast beginning Wednesday night so temperatures will be cooler along
the coast on Thursday with low stratus and fog returning. Some marine
air may get into the southern willamette valley Thursday morning but
not enough to prevent another warm day inland. In response to an
approaching upper trough the thermal trough will move inland Thursday
night and the marine layer should deepen bringing some clouds inland
through Friday morning. Thus, the warm weather will end for at least
the freezable future. Schneider

Long term No changes. Previous discussion follows... Thursday night
through Monday... Southwesterly flow across the region Thursday night
and Friday as an upper trough advances through the forecast area.

Forecast models in general agreement with a weakening front pushing
across the area. Boosted pops even further as 00z models are in
better agreement for late in the week and weekend with a cool trough
transiting the region sat. After the weekend however, models then
diverge a bit for the first half of next week, so have maintained
some low end pop chances for the start of next week in a nod to the
ecmwf solution which provides for a deeper upper trough with more
moisture (compared to the direr GFS solution). Expect that
temperatures will trend back to slightly below seasonal normals for
the weekend through early next week. Mh cullen

Aviation There are some pockets of fog and low stratus
producing ifr conditions this morning along some of the coastal
river valleys as well as west of eugene. The stratus and fog will
lift and dissipate by late morning. Otherwise, most of the area
isVFR with abundant sunshine. ExpectVFR conditions everywhere
this afternoon and tonight.

Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions expected today and tonight.

Marine Thermal low pressure over southwest oregon will push
northward along the coast today and bring some gusty north winds
this evening and tonight over the outer waters and inland waters
south of cascade head. Wind gusts will be in the 20-25 kt range
in these areas. The thermal low pressure pushes inland Wednesday
for decreasing winds. Winds will remain light Wednesday into the
weekend. Towards the end of weekend and the beginning of next
week there is still considerable model uncertainty with the ecmwf
indicating gusty southerlies ahead of the next system to move
through the area while the GFS continues the northerlies.

Seas will remain 4 to 5 through the week until later in the
weekend when a system moving in will bring increasing seas
across our waters. 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.
