Synopsis Light onshore flow will give some areas of low clouds in
the late night and morning hours through Monday. The areas of night
and morning low clouds and fog should mainly on the coast and near
the water. High pressure will shift over the region Monday and
Tuesday for warmer temperatures. A trough will bring cooler weather
and a chance of showers late Wednesday and Thursday. High pressure
will build over the area again toward the end of the week.

Short term A few areas of low clouds should form along the
coast late tonight and there might be a few patches inland. Light
northwesterly onshore flow will give another nice day on Sunday
with highs into the 70s across much of the interior. Upper ridging
amplifies just offshore Sunday night then progresses eastward across
the region Monday and into western montana Tuesday afternoon. This
ridge will give sunny weather except for shallow morning low clouds
and fog--but mainly for the coast and over the waters. Around puget
sound and up through the inland waters fog or low clouds should burn
off over land pretty quickly but could linger through mid morning
over the water.

Long term Onshore flow later Tuesday will usher in a marine
push Tuesday afternoon and evening that will result in increased
clouds. The push will be followed by a frontal system that will
move across the area Wednesday night and a rather deep upper level
trough Thursday through Thursday night. Long term models appear to
be converging on a solution (between the GFS and ecmwf) where
there will be a threat of showers Wednesday afternoon through
Thursday evening. Thursday high temperatures will likely not reach
the 70 degree mark across most of the area with the clouds, some
showers, and the cooler air mass. Snow levels are expected to fall
to 6000 to 7000 feet in the north cascades Thursday or Thursday
night, and may impact campers and backpackers at higher
elevations.

As high pressure builds into southeastern british columbia Friday
through the weekend, offshore flow will give a good warming and
drying trend. Albrecht

Aviation Northwest flow aloft over western washington tonight
and Sunday as an upper ridge remains over the offshore waters. At
the surface, onshore flow will continue with high pressure
offshore and lower pressure east of the cascades.

Just some high clouds over most of the area through Sunday.

Shallow marine layer along the coast with MVFR ceilings
developing for a few hours Sunday morning.

Ksea... Just some high clouds at times through Sunday. North
northeast wind 5 to 10 kt backing to northwest again midday Sunday.

Marine A typical august pattern will prevail through the
middle of next week. Expect onshore flow of varying strength to

Wednesday and move inland Thursday. Small craft advisory west
winds are likely in the central and eastern strait of juan de
fuca in the evening and early morning hours each night. Felton

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
