Synopsis
A ridge of high pressure will persist over the inland northwest
through the week and into the weekend. This will bring mainly
clear skies, light winds with chilly morning temperatures and
mild afternoons highs. The next chance of precipitation looks like
it could arrive by the middle of next week.

Discussion
Today through Wednesday night... Benign weather pattern is expected
as strong upper level ridge begins to shift inland from its
current position near 128w. As the ridge shifts inland the main
impact will be warming temperatures, especially aloft. 850 mb
temperatures warm anywhere from 1-2.5c versus yesterday and then
another couple degrees on Wednesday. Whether all this warming
translates down to the ground is questionable as surface winds are
expected to be quite light and mixing heights will generally be
2000 feet or less above the ground. In any case, we should see
subtle warming today and tomorrow vs yesterday with ample daytime
sunshine expected. Look for highs today in the generally in the
low to mid 60s and just a couple degrees warmer on Wednesday.

While daytime highs look mild for this time of year, the same
cannot be said for nighttime lows, as strong inversions are
expected with clearing skies and light winds. It seems the raw
model guidance is too warm in the valleys and we will trend
temperatures toward persistence, although we should see a small
moderation as surface dewpoints climb a few degrees over the next
2 mornings. The higher dewpoints also will lead to an increasing
chance of valley fog especially near lakes and rivers. The best
chances should occur over NE washington and the northern half of
the idaho panhandle. Fx
Thursday through Monday: little change in the weather pattern
through the weekend as an upper ridge rebuilds. The air mass will
remain dry resulting in strong night time inversions with cool
temperatures in the valleys and columbia basin. Then the inversion
breaks late morning for mild afternoon temperatures with highs
mainly in the 60s. This weather pattern may result in air
stagnation concerns. The dry air mass should limit fog potential
to the most fog prone areas of NE wa N idaho as well as lake
wenatchee. The ridge begins to shift east Monday but dry weather
should continue. A change towards a wetter pattern is possibly by
the middle of next week. Jw

Aviation
12z tafs: high pressure will bringVFR conditions and light winds to
all forecast sites. The only weather of consequence will revolve
around some patchy valley fog with the greatest threat occurring
north and east of all the TAF sites. As of 4am... There was very
little if any fog noted on satellite so the coverage could be quite
sporadic. Fx

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.
