area forecast discussion

300 pm pdt Sun jun 16 2019

Synopsis Mostly clear skies will give way to overnight and
morning clouds before returning for Monday. Tuesday will see more
clouds and perhaps a few showers or some morning drizzle. An upper
trough will reach the area after the middle of the week for a chance
of showers at times.

Short term today through Tuesday Some high clouds over the
western half of the CWA while low clouds can still be found over
some locations along the coast. Temperatures are a little shy of
what was expected... But time still remains for them to catch up to
the forecast.

Models remain consistent for the near term. An upper level ridge
moves through the area today keeping conditions dry and warm. A very
minor shortwave hot on its heels may bring a slight chance of
showers to the far northern cascades late this afternoon into
tonight but this feature moves out pretty quickly to be of much... If
any... Significance. Weaker ridging resumes Monday with very little
change in conditions. Tuesday sees a switch as the area starts to
feel the presence of an upper level low approaching the area from
northern bc. While conditions will remain dry... Temperatures will
fall to the lower 70s over the interior lowlands... Lower 60s along
the coast. All that said... Very few changes made to inherited
forecast. Smr

Long term Wednesday through Saturday Models are coming more in
line with regards to approaching upper level low as it dips
southward from northern bc Wednesday. Both models suggest that there
may be some precip for northern portions of the CWA Wednesday... But
as the upper low dives east of the CWA Thursday will likely see best
chance for widespread precip then. Pops with this feature still less
than impressive... Topping out in low-end chance category. This
feature does not linger and dry conditions are expected to resume
Friday. A second upper level low looks to arrive Saturday bringing
another chance... Albeit small... For showers. This switch to a more
active pattern will bring temps over the area down some... With
interior lowland temps dropping into the upper 60s to lower 70s
while locations on the coast will hover around 60. Smr

Aviation Upper ridge axis shifting east this afternoon with a
weak trough moving by to the north tonight. Another upper level
ridge will build offshore late tonight into Monday. Westerly flow
aloft becoming northwesterly overnight. Increasing low level onshore
flow will send stratus surging inland quicker tonight. That will
lead to widespread ifr or low MVFR ceilings across the area
from late tonight through at least midday Monday.

Ksea...VFR through late tonight. Stratus returns tonight
between 09z and 12z and is likely to be slightly higher and thicker
than what occurred this morning. Burnoff may not occur until 21z or
later on Monday. Surface winds w-sw 5 to 10 knots this afternoon and
evening... Becoming light southwesterly by daybreak Monday. 27

Marine High pressure over the coastal waters with lower
pressure inland will result in varying degrees of onshore flow
through the week. Gale force westerlies are likely in the central
and eastern strait of juan de fuca in the evening through early
morning hours through Tuesday night. Small craft advisory winds in
the adjacent waters, admiralty inlet and northern inland waters
during the same time. Weak troughing over the coastal waters
should lead to weaker onshore late in the week. 27

Hydrology The daily hydrology discussion has ended until the
start of the next rainy season; it will only be updated as needed
until then.

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... Gale watch from Monday afternoon through late Monday night for
central u.S. Waters strait of juan de fuca-east entrance
u.S. Waters strait of juan de fuca.

Gale warning until 5 am pdt Monday for central u.S. Waters
strait of juan de fuca-east entrance u.S. Waters strait of
juan de fuca.

Small craft advisory until 5 am pdt Monday for admiralty inlet-
northern inland waters including the san juan islands.

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.
