Synopsis A weak cold front over western washington will move
inland overnight. Another front will reach the area Monday. Weak
upper troughs will bring a chance of showers at times next week.

Short term tonight through Monday A weakening front is over
western washington this evening. There are some areas of showers but
there isn't a lot going on with this system. A few showers are
possible into Saturday and then any shower activity will end
Saturday night. Low level offshore flow on Sunday will dry the
air with more sunshine. Another front will move into the area on
Monday for another chance of rain. Overall it looks like this first
front split as it came ashore, with the stronger portion of the
front holding together as it moved into california. Perhaps the
front on Monday will split as well.

Long term Tuesday through Friday Some showers will linger
into Tuesday behind the Monday front but the trend will be for
drying. It looks like an upper level blocking pattern will
develop Wednesday and probably continue into Thursday and Friday.

This should keep any fronts or organized weather systems out of
the area but it also makes for a rather squirrely pattern with low
confidence in the details. There will likely be some dry periods
mixed with times when there is a chance of showers. Schneider

Aviation The weakening cold front over western washington is
giving some shower activity, but nothing very organized. The flow
aloft is southerly. The air mass will remain moist overnight with
onshore flow. Later Saturday and Sunday the flow will turn offshore
again for more sunshine.

Ksea... A few showers are possible, southwest breeze, mostly broken
cigs overnight will scatter out by Saturday afternoon.

Marine Winds are settling down but I will leave the small craft
advisories up for now since the front is still over western
washington. On Saturday, breezes will be on the lighter side, but
there will still be a small craft advisory for the coastal waters
for the seas.

Hydrology River flooding is not expected for the next 7 days.

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.
