Synopsis An upper level ridge will bring a dry period tonight
through Saturday morning as it crosses western washington. A weak
cold front will bring a little light rain to the coast and north
part Saturday morning before spreading light rain across the rest of
the area Saturday afternoon and evening. Scattered post-frontal
showers will be around late Saturday night and Sunday. A weak warm
front could bring some light rain on Monday. An upper level ridge
may bring warmer weather to the area mid next week but some spotty
light rain is also possible.

Short term The low amplitude upper level ridge just offshore
along 130w this evening will move over W wa Saturday morning then
quickly E by Saturday afternoon. Dry weather is expected tonight but
high clouds from the upstream cold front will be increasing over the
area tonight. Mid level clouds from the tail-gating cold front will
spread over the area Saturday morning. GFS and ECMWF are in general
agreement that low clouds and light rain will reach the coast and n
interior in the morning before 18z/11 am, then spread across the
rest of the interior during the afternoon. Rain-shadowing from w
flow aloft across the olympics could reduce rain amounts over puget
sound. The cold front will reach the coast early in the evening then
move over the cascades after midnight, so Saturday evening should be
the best period for light rain.

Westerly flow aloft and low level onshore flow will develop behind
the cold front late Saturday night through Sunday. This will keep w
wa cool with scattered showers. Showers should be more prevalent
along the coast, over the mountains, and around the greater puget
sound region where another convergence zone is expected to form. The
nw and SW interior will probably see the least shower activity on
Sunday. High temperatures on Sunday will remain in the mid 50s which
is several degrees below normal and just slightly cooler than
Saturday.

A weak surface low with weak warm advection could bring a little
light rain to the area on Monday. However, the models continue to be
inconsistent with this system so confidence remains low. Kam

Long term Previous discussion from the 240 pm afd... Models show a
progressive pattern next week with a ridge moving across the area
during the Tuesday through Thursday timeframe followed by a trough
late next week. The problem is with the strength of the ridge. 12z
models (both the GFS and ecmwf) show high heights with temperatures
possibly getting into the 70s from about seattle southward and weak
systems going by to the north of the area. The 00z runs from both
models were flatter with the ridge, stronger with the passing
frontal systems, and lower with the 500mb heights. The 12z ensembles
support the stronger ridge, but the ECMWF ensembles were less
aggressive with the height rises on the 00z run. With only moderate
confidence, conditions across most of the area for Tuesday through
Thursday were dried out and skies are advertised to be partly cloudy.

Temperatures were nudged upward in the direction of the new 12z
solutions - but will not yet advertise temperatures well into the
70s in our area. The models have had a tendency to overdevelop
ridges so far this season, so that seems to be the best direction
to go for now. Albrecht

Aviation High pressure offshore will move over western washington
tonight, then a front will approach the coast Saturday.

Light northwest flow aloft tonight will become moderate west-
southwesterly Saturday. The air mass is becoming mostly dry and
stable except for some isolated residualVFR stratus possible early
Saturday morning. Increasing high clouds Saturday afternoon and
evening. LowerVFR stratus will develop with some light rain
reaching the coast by afternoon... Spreading inland by evening.

Ksea... Northwesterly wind 5-9 kt this evening will become light
southerly after midnight. Dtm

Marine Residual onshore flow will weaken overnight with small
craft winds in the central and eastern strait easing late.

Otherwise, winds below 20 kt across the waters tonight. North-
northwesterly winds from tacoma northward in puget sound will switch
to light southerly after midnight.

A front will bring small craft advisory strength southerly winds
to the coastal waters by Saturday afternoon. Winds will spread to
inland waters with some advisory level winds possible, mainly
north of puget sound. Strong onshore flow Sunday will weaken
Monday and Tuesday with lighter winds expected. Dtm

Sew watches/warnings/advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... Small craft advisory central and eastern strait of juan de fuca
through 3 am pdt Saturday morning.
