Synopsis It will be mainly dry with slightly above normal
temperatures this week. A few showers or thunderstorms are
possible most afternoons and evenings over the cascades.

Short term tonight through Wednesday Lingering moisture and
instability will be enough for isolated afternoon and evening
showers the next few days, mainly over the cascades. There also
might be an isolated thunderstorm over the cascades each afternoon
and evening where it will be more unstable.

There should be less clouds on Monday compared to today. The
added sunshine will result in highs warming several degrees with
lower to mid 70s for much of the interior. Stronger low level
onshore flow should produce morning clouds and afternoon sunshine
Tuesday and Wednesday with highs ranging from near 60 at the
coast to around 70 for central and south interior. Schneider

Long term Thursday through Sunday This will be a period of
quiet weather with mostly dry conditions and temperatures near to
slightly above normal. A weak upper ridge on Thursday will
gradually be replaced by a mainly dry upper trough for the weekend.

The result will be some minor cooling and a slight increase in
shower chances by next weekend. Schneider

ridge building into northern portions of british columbia. Surface
flow will be light northerly into this evening becoming onshore
early Monday morning.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
