Synopsis Afternoon evening showers and thunderstorms over the
mountains again today. A system will bring more widespread showers
to the area Friday into Saturday. Drier conditions possible next
week though the chance for mountain showers may continue.

Short term today through Saturday Marine stratus has made a
push into the southwest interior and down the strait early this
morning with ceilings between 300 and 500 feet. Oth-sea gradient
has relaxed slightly overnight but some patchy stratus may make it
close to the metro area by daybreak. Should erode back to near
the coast by mid or late morning. Otherwise fairly mild overnight
temperatures and plenty of sunshine should result in a few degrees
of warming from Wednesday's highs. Showers and isolated
thunderstorms will pop up in the mountains later this afternoon
and evening with marginal instability. Like yesterday, activity
shouldn't be super widespread.

Upper level trough will drop south from bc on Friday, bringing
the chance for more widespread showers. Amounts look to be fairly
light. This will serve to cool temperatures back into the 60s for
the start of the weekend. Fairly new over the past few model runs,
solutions show a secondary low dropping SE along the coast
Saturday which may bring additional showers. Have hedged forecast
in this direction though don't expect it to be a washout. Ceo

Long term Sunday through Wednesday Aforementioned low drops
south of the region on Sunday with high pressure returning into
mid-week. This should bring dry weather to most, though diurnal
showers possible over the mountains each day. Afternoon highs will
warm back into the 70s, except for along the coast which will be
in the upper 60s. Ceo

Aviation Light northerly flow aloft becoming northwesterly
tonight and Friday as a broad upper level trough drops down from
the north. In the lower levels light flow today becoming onshore
tonight and Friday.

Stratus along the coast has spread inland to the southwest
interior, kitsap peninsula and down the strait of juan de fuca.

Ceilings with the stratus, below 1000 feet. The marine layer is
shallow and will not advance much further east this morning but
will get far enough to get into the central puget sound terminals
for a couple of hours, 12z-16z, this morning. The layer will
dissipate this afternoon then return overnight with stronger
onshore flow lifting the ceilings for Friday morning up into the
1000-2000 foot range. Air mass still slightly unstable over the
higher terrain this afternoon into the evening hours for possible
showers or an isolated thunderstorm.

Ksea... Ceilings with the stratus around 500 feet msl and with the
gradients weakening expect the terminal to fog in 12z-16z with
ceilings 200 feet or less and visibility below 1 mile. The layer
is shallow and will dissipate around 16z leaving just scattered
clouds. Stratus returning to the airport in the early morning
hours on Friday with ceilings around 1000 feet.

Light wind becoming northwesterly 4 to 8 knots around 18z. Wind
switching to southwesterly after 03z tonight. Felton

Marine Light flow this morning will becoming onshore and
increase this afternoon into tonight. The low level onshore flow
will gradually decrease Friday and Saturday. Small craft advisory
strength west winds both Thursday and Friday evenings for the
central and east entrance strait of juan de fuca.

With the increasing onshore flow small craft advisory northwest
winds will develop over the coastal waters today and continue into
Friday. Gale force northwesterlies are possible over the outer
coastal waters on Friday.

Winds will ease for the weekend as the low level flow becomes
light. Onshore flow will increase again on Monday.

In addition to the winds there will also be 10-14 foot west to
northwest swell over the outer coastal waters beginning Friday
with the swell building to around 10 feet over the inner coastal
waters Friday night and Saturday. Felton

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.
