Synopsis Upper level ridging over washington will keep
conditions dry through Thursday. Offshore flow at the surface will
allow for warm conditions to continue, with near-record to record
high temperatures expected on Thursday. An upper level low will
approach from the southwest late in the week bringing a return to
seasonably cool temperatures and an increasing chance of showers
Friday into the weekend.

Short term Warm and dry weather continued today with high
pressure and offshore flow. Skies were mostly sunny with just a
thin patch of cirrus over the region. Temperatures were mainly in
the upper 60s to lower 70s and we should add a few more degrees
late this afternoon. Lows will be mild tonight, near 50, as low
level offshore flow increases. Guidance shows temperatures
trending a few degrees warmer on Thursday.

A flip to onshore flow will bring cooler conditions on Friday.

Temperatures will trend closer to normal with highs in the 60s.

There is a chance of showers, mainly for the southern half of the
cwa, as a closed upper level low spreads moisture north toward
western washington. The upper low will continue to push inland
Friday night into Saturday with more moisture wrapping around into
western wa. Expect highs on Saturday only in the mid to upper 50s. 33

Long term The upper level low will slowly push east through the
pac NW on Sunday then finally exit on Monday. Model continue show
some moisture over the the region for a chance of showers and
cooler conditions. An upper level ridge will build offshore on
Tuesday then shift inland Wednesday and Thursday for warmer and
drier conditions. 33

Aviation High pressure aloft over western washington will shift
into eastern washington on Thursday. Light flow aloft will become
light southerly on Thursday. The air mass is dry and stable with
goodVFR conditions over the entire area, and will continue that
way through Thursday.

At the surface, high pressure over central british columbia will
shift southeastward into southeastern british columbia and
eastern washington later tonight into Thursday. A thermal trough
of low pressure over the coastal waters will strengthen tonight
into Thursday morning then shift slowly inland Thursday afternoon.

Light north to northeasterly flow will turn to the east and
increase somewhat, especially near gaps in the terrain, late
tonight into Thursday morning. The low level flow will become
light in the afternoon as the thermal trough moves inland then
become onshore early Thursday evening. Albrecht
ksea... Very goodVFR with clear skies and good visibility.

Wind 340 degrees at 10-12 kt will shift to NE 6-10 kt 03z this
evening through Thursday morning. Wind will shift back to 34010kt
midday Thursday. Albrecht

Marine A 1024 mb high over central british columbia will shift
southeast into southeastern british columbia and eastern
washington late tonight and Thursday. A thermal trough of low
pressure over the coastal waters will strengthen late tonight into
Thursday morning then will shift inland later Thursday into
Thursday night. Light north flow today will become more easterly
late tonight into Thursday morning. East winds 15 to 25 knots are
expected around the east entrance to the strait of juan de fuca
later tonight into Thursday morning, so a small craft advisory is
in effect from midnight tonight until noon Thursday.

Onshore flow will develop Thursday evening as the thermal trough
shifts inland. Small craft advisory conditions are likely over
much of the strait of juan de fuca Thursday night into Friday.

Onshore flow is expected to strengthen later Friday as pressures
fall to the east of the area and ridging develops offshore. Gale
force winds are possible over the eastern two-thirds of the strait
of juan de fuca Friday night and small craft advisory winds are
possible in the inland waters around the strait and over the
southern portions of puget sound and hood canal.

Onshore flow will gradually relax over the weekend with small
craft advisory conditions mainly during the afternoon and
overnight hours in the strait. Albrecht

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... Small craft advisory from midnight tonight to noon pdt Thursday
for coastal waters from CAPE flattery to james island out
10 nm-west entrance u.S. Waters strait of juan de fuca.

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.
