Synopsis A low will drop south from british columbia today,
bringing a chance for light showers across the area, with isolated
thunder possible near cascade crest. Another low drops south for
Saturday with more widespread chances for showers. Drier and
warmer weather expected for the lowlands for next week with
chances for showers and isolated thunderstorms in the mountains
through memorial day.

Short term today through Sunday Well we had a little
excitement early this morning as small convergence zone fired off
a line of showers and thunderstorms from port clinton over to lake
stevens everett and east into snohomish county. Plenty of
lightning strikes to go along with heavy downpours and possible
small hail. Further north, showers beginning to drop south from bc
as first of two lows approaches. This system will drop south
across wa today and into oregon tonight. Latest hi-res guidance
suggests most activity will be across the mountains and lowlands
east of the sound so have nudged forecast in that direction. Some
areas won't see any rain at all today. Outside of showers, cloud
cover, breezy winds, and cooler air will reign. Afternoon
temperatures will top out in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Second low will take a track further west and skirt the
washington coast Saturday, dropping into northern california by
Sunday. This may allow for more widespread showers on Saturday.

Temperatures will be similar to today, maybe a degree or two
warmer.

Low then departs for Sunday, bringing drier weather for the
lowlands and temperatures warming back into the 70s. Much like
the past few days, still a chance for some showers and isolated
thunderstorms across the mountain as long wave western us trough
remains in place with a bit of instability. Ceo

Long term Monday through Thursday Ridging builds in next week
with a return to dry weather and warm temperatures. Will likely
see periods of morning clouds and afternoon sun. Memorial day
highs will top out in the mid to upper 70s with low to mid 70s for
the rest of the week. Pattern suggests we may continue to see
diurnally driven showers and isolated thunderstorms in the
mountains each day through mid-week. Ceo

Aviation Light flow aloft today becoming northwesterly tonight
as upper level trough moves south of the area. Low level onshore
flow into Saturday. In general ceilings between 1000-2000 feet
except along the strait of juan de fuca and over the northwest
interior where ceilings will be in the 5000 foot range. Ceilings
lifting a little this afternoon into tonight before lowering back
down to 1000-2000 feet Saturday morning.

Ksea... Ceilings between 1000-2000 feet lifting to 2000 to 3000
feet midday then lowering back down overnight. Southerly wind 10
to 15 knots. Felton

Marine Onshore flow continuing into Saturday with strong
northwesterly flow over the coastal waters. Gale warnings are in
effect for the outer coastal waters with small craft advisories
for the inner coastal waters. Winds easing later Saturday into
Sunday as the low level flow becomes light. Onshore flow will
increase again on Monday and continue into Tuesday. Felton

until then.

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.
