Synopsis High pressure aloft will bring one more very warm day
to western washington on Sunday. Much cooler temperatures with
some night and morning clouds will prevail Monday through
Wednesday with an upper trough over the area and and low level
onshore. An upper ridge will move over the area later in the week
for some modest warming.

Short term An upper ridge currently over the area will shift
inland tonight and Sunday. A thermal trough over the coast will
also shift inland later Sunday. Sunday should be a few degrees
warmer than today for the interior with record highs likely. A
heat advisory remains in effect. The coast will cool 5-10 degrees
as onshore flow develops in the afternoon.

An onshore push will occur Sunday night with low clouds developing
at the coast in the evening and spreading at least partially
inland early Monday morning. There might even be a few showers
over the southern cascades Monday morning as a short wave clips
the area but most of this is expected to be east of the crest.

Highs will be much cooler on Monday with most areas cooling 15 to
20 degrees. Low clouds should burn back to the coast during the
day.

Moderate to strong onshore flow will continue Monday night and
Tuesday. Low clouds should once again spread inland overnight with
more extensive coverage Tuesday morning and a slower burnoff later
in the day. Highs should cool a few more degrees back to near
normal. Schneider

Long term Previous discussion... Progs agree on some ridging
aloft with rising heights Wednesday and Thursday. This change
should translate into some thinning of the marine layer resulting
in a late night morning clouds, afternoon sunshine regime. For
Friday and Saturday, the progs differ on retaining the building
height trend vs some weak troughing off the coast. Bottom line
here is likely maintaining low level onshore flow and the marine
layer, with afternoon sunshine particularly in the interior and a
bit warmer than average temperatures. Buehner

Aviation A strong upper ridge axis is squarely over western
washington this evening. It will move to the northern rockies over
the next 24 hours. Light northwest flow aloft will become
southwest on Sunday. Weak low-level offshore flow and a dry air
mass will continue through Sunday morning. Low-level onshore flow
will develop later Sunday, and the low-level air mass will start
to moisten on Sunday night. Clear skies through the day on Sunday,
then marine stratus should make its first appearance near grays
harbor as early as Sunday evening.

Ksea... Clear skies and light north wind will persist through
Sunday evening. haner

Marine A somewhat diffuse thermal pressure trough will linger
near the coast until after sunrise on Sunday, leading to weak
low-level offshore flow. The trough will move east of the cascades
on Sunday afternoon, opening the door to increasing onshore
gradients and wind. Uil-bli gradient should peak on Monday night,
by which time westerly gales appear likely in the central and
eastern strait. Cannot rule out gales on Sunday night, thus the
gale watch, but the nam's forecast uil-bli gradient of +2 to +2.7
mb on Sunday night is not convincing at that time. Haner

bremerton and vicinity-east puget sound lowlands-hood canal

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.
