Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis After sunny warm weather Sunday, a cold front will move
through the area Sunday night. A cool upper trough will affect the
region Monday. Tuesday should see weak high pressure before another
upper trough arrives late Wednesday and Thursday.

Short term The upper ridge axis over western washington will
quickly move inland--this will be a quick temporary warm up Sunday.

As the cold front reaches the area, some rain is likely from about
seattle northward later Sunday night--but areas south of seattle and
the southern half of the cascades could stay mostly dry. The showers
with the trough on Monday are likely to be mainly in the north
too. Tuesday will see the trough shift inland and heights rebound
somewhat, but there isn't really an upper ridge--just zonal flow
aloft with heights peaking around 576dm.

Long term This ridge looks to fizzle out by the time it makes it
to the coast... Leaving zonal flow over the area for Wed making for a
dry day and keeping temps pretty level with highs right around 70 in
the lowlands. Another upper level trough will enter the area
afterward bringing pops back into the forecast for both Thursday and
Friday. Both models in agreement with regards to a pacific high
pressure system likely to be the next influence on W wa
weather... But there is some disagreement on how soon or even if
moisture will move out... The GFS opting for a drier solution while
the ECMWF allows pops to linger. Until a consensus emerges... Opted
to split the difference. Smr

Aviation Onshore flow decreases through midday Sunday then kicks
in again late Sunday afternoon and evening. The air mass is stable
and drying--at 8pm there were only a few patches of clouds remaining
over the region. After a sunny warm day on Sunday, clouds should
increase late afternoon or evening and marine air will push in
again. A cold front will arrive overnight Sunday night with areas of
rain developing on the coast in the evening--especially the north
coast, and spreading to the i-5 corridor in the middle of the night--
especially north of seattle.

Ksea... Mostly clear skies until a cold front nears the area late
Sunday. Skies should cloud up pretty quickly Sunday evening.

Marine Sunday will warm up, and then there will be a decent push
of marine air late Sunday afternoon and evening--just ahead of a
cold front. The cold front will reach western washington Sunday
night, and an upper trough will follow on Monday.

Sunday evening looks like a good bet for westerly gales in the
strait of juan de fuca. Also, the hqm-sea gradient ought to get up
to at least +3mb--so breezy southwest winds are likely down around
shelton, but the models show winds converging over puget sound which
limits the wind speeds for most of the puget sound area.

Onshore flow eases Monday through midday Tuesday, picks up with the
diurnal push Tuesday evening, and then another upper trough arrives
so Wednesday evening could also have stronger onshore gradients,
in general, there will be alot of onshore flow and marine air
affecting western washington next week--marine air is likely to
flood in so that race rocks flirts with gales most evenings for a
few hours. Elsewhere, the winds will be not too remarkable, basic
moderate onshore flow most days.

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... Gale watch from Sunday afternoon through late Sunday night 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 pm pdt Sunday for central u.S.

Waters strait of juan de fuca-east entrance u.S. Waters
strait of juan de fuca.
