Synopsis Large waves at the coast will subside tonight and
Friday. Western washington will be under the influence of an
upper trough for much of the week for showery weather. Fronts
will bring periods of steadier and more widespread rain Sunday
and Tuesday or Tuesday night.

Short term An upper trough will maintain moist unstable flow
over the area the next couple of days. Weak short waves in the
flow aloft will enhance showers at times. A puget sound
convergence zone is also possible around Saturday morning. A
frontal system will bring a period of steadier and more
widespread rain late Saturday night and Sunday.

There will be a slight chance of thunderstorms this evening near
the coast. The thunder threat should end after that with slightly
more stable air developing. Large swell - 25-30 feet - at the
coast will gradually subside tonight and Friday.

It will be breezy to windy at times the next couple of days with
a deep surface low off the british columbia coast. The frontal
system Saturday night and Sunday could bring advisory strength
winds to the coast and northwest interior.

The mountains will pick up accumulating snow the next couple of
days. There might be advisory amounts at times but it will be hard
to pick out a 12 hour period with heavier snow due to the showery
nature of the precipitation. The best chance for advisory amounts
will probably be Friday night in the cascades when an upper short
wave enhances the showers. Schneider

Long term Monday will be a showery day in the wake of the
Sunday front with an upper trough over the area. An upper ridge
will briefly cross the area Monday night and early Tuesday for
perhaps a dry spell.

The next in a series of fronts will spread rain into the area
later Tuesday. An upper trough will keep things showery and cool
Wednesday. Some showers will linger into Thursday but they should
be decreasing as the upper trough shifts inland. Snow levels could
get down to low enough for some chunky rain on the higher hills
Thursday morning. Schneider

Aviation An upper trough will move ashore over the west
coast of the u.S. Through Friday. Strong SW flow aloft today will
become light west flow Friday. The air is moist and unstable with
scattered showers. A few thunderstorms were occuring this afternoon-
-although the most unstable air will move into western oregon
tonight under the coldest air aloft there.

Ksea... Scattered showers and a southerly breeze.

Marine A deep low will gradually fill as it slowly moves to the
north tip of vancouver island Friday. Combined seas at buoy41 were
still 31' at 17sec early this afternoon. Strong southwest flow will
ease through Friday as the low fills. Weaker troughs will move
through the waters Friday night and Saturday. Fronts will affect the
region Sunday, Tuesday and wed.

Hydrology Heavy rain from a frontal system could cause minor
flooding on the skokomish river in mason county later Sunday or
Sunday night. Otherwise, river flooding is not expected for the
next 7 days.

Sew watches warnings advisories

coast-north coast.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
