Synopsis An upper level low will bring isolated showers to the
region tonight. Another low drops south for Saturday with more
widespread chances for showers. Drier and warmer weather expected
for the lowlands for next week with chances for showers and
isolated thunderstorms in the mountains through memorial day.

Short term tonight through Monday Strong onshore flow
resulted in a much cooler air mass across western washington
today. Temperatures were mostly in the 50s to lower 60s this
afternoon, compared to the 70s we saw on Thursday. An upper level
low will cross the region this afternoon and evening for a chance
of showers, mainly in the interior and cascades.

Cool and showery weather will continue on Saturday as another
upper level low spins over the region. Temperatures will be
similar to what we are seeing today - highs near 60 degrees.

The upper level low will exit south on Sunday, but we may see some
wrap-around showers clipping the cascades. Otherwise, onshore
flow is weaker for less cloud cover and warmer temperatures.

We're looking warmer for memorial day as temperatures reach the
low to mid 70s in the interior. The coast will remain cooler and
in the 60s. There's a chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms
in the cascades, where instability is the greatest. 33

Long term Tuesday through Friday Weak high pressure will
provide dry weather as we move through next week. At the surface,
low level onshore flow will prevail. We'll likely see morning
clouds each day then some clearing and sunbreaks in the afternoon.

The pattern breaks down late in the period, next Friday and
Saturday, as the flow turns more zonal and a trough moves in. 33

Aviation Upper level low over the area will keep winds generally
northerly through tonight as the upper low swings to the south.

Onshore flow will continue through Saturday. MVFR CIGS across
portions of the northern sound and coast this afternoon with some
vfr across the south sound. AnyVFR CIGS this afternoon will lower
again late tonight through Saturday morning. Ifr CIGS possible in
spots Saturday morning. A few showers will be around this afternoon
but most sites will stay dry. Southerly winds 7 to 14 knots with a
few gusts up to 23 knots along the coast.

Ksea... Some improvement to CIGS across south sound this afternoon
withVFR CIGS into this evening. MVFR conditions will return early
tonight and continue into Saturday afternoon. Few showers arrive
late Saturday morning and continue into the afternoon. Southerly
winds 5 to 12 knots. Jd

Marine Onshore flow through Saturday with strong northwesterly
flow present over the coastal waters. Gale warnings continue for the
outer coastal waters with SCA level winds for the inner coastal
waters into Saturday. Surface flow will become lighter later
Saturday into Sunday. Onshore flow will increase on Monday and

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.
