Synopsis High pressure will bring dry and warm conditions to
western washington this week. Expect cooler conditions along the
coast with northwest flow.

Short term Warm weather is expected this week across western
washington, especially through the interior with high temperatures
in the 80s to lower 90s. This is 10-15 degrees warmer than normal.

The warm air mass is due to a strong building ridge over the
southwest, pushing 500 mb heights upwards across the pac nw. The
surface flow is mostly onshore with cooler conditions expected along
the coast. The coast will also see low level stratus clouds,
mainly during the overnight and morning hours. Morning lows will
be in the 50s to mid 60s. 33

Long term Dry and warm conditions will continue into the weekend
as the strong upper level ridge shifts into the west. The ridge
axis may build into the pac NW and temperatures will remain warmer
than normal. High temperatures in the interior are in the 80s to
lower 90s through the period. Relief from the heat is at the coast
where the flow remains onshore. No precipitation over the next 7
days. 33

Aviation Light west-southwest flow aloft continues today with a
broad upper ridge over the western us. Air mass is dry and stable
except for some shallow stratus near the immediate coast producing
some ifr ceilings night and morning hours.VFR for the remainder of
the area.

Ksea... Clear skies through Monday. Surface winds NE 5 to 10 knots
becoming NW midday through the early evening hours. 27

Marine Surface high pressure over b.C. Will produce mostly light
or northerly flow over the waters through the week. Winds over the
coastal waters may approach small craft strength but are expected to
remain below advisory thresholds. Typical diurnally driven westerly
winds will strengthen at times in the central and eastern strait
possibly resulting in small craft advisory wind speeds. As such... A
small craft advisory will go into effect later this afternoon and
into tonight for this portion of the strait. Smr

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.
