Synopsis Dry and relatively warm weather will continue
tonight. A weak storm system approaching the region on Wednesday
will bring cooler conditions and a chance of showers. Cool weather
with spotty light showers will linger over western washington
Wednesday night and Thursday. Dry and warmer weather will return
Friday through Monday with above normal temperatures expected
especially through the interior.

Short term Onshore gradients have tightened up with uil-bli
hitting +4.1 this last hour and hqm-sea sitting at +2.6. Low clouds
have worked onto the coast and already through the chehalis gap in
the south and into the east strait in the north. This is a bit more
vigorous than what was laid out in the afternoon forecast, have
updated the forecast to reflect more clouds over the interior after
midnight. Stratus will lift late in the morning over the interior
while mid and high level clouds begin to work into the area ahead of
an approaching, albeit weak system. This system will bring showers
along the north coast by late morning then across the olympic
peninsula during the afternoon. Expect a chance of shower through
the remainder of the interior during the evening. Overall this
system is very weak and forecast to fall apart as is moves onshore
with light and spotty precipitation at best. The best bet for
showers remains the coast, north interior and mountains. Light
showers may linger into Thursday morning, especially over the
cascades and in a puget sound convergence zone - if it forms, during
the day Thursday. Expect some clearing with Sun breaks Thursday
afternoon with high temperatures likely rising into the low 70s
across the interior and mid to upper 60s along the coast.

Long term From previous discussion... The upper level trough will
slowly lift into central canada Friday and Saturday leaving the
pacific northwest under a dry, westerly pattern with mostly sunny
skies. Expect high temperatures to gradually warm Saturday and
Sunday into the low to mid 80s over the interior and 70s along the
coast. Upper level heights will rise Monday as the upper level ridge
builds along the west coast into british columbia. This will boost
high temperatures into the upper 80s with a few of the warmer
locations in the southwest interior close to 90. The upper level
ridge will shift east Tuesday with warm and dry conditions
continuing.

Aviation An upper trough will approach the region
through Wednesday, then move across the area Wednesday night and
Thursday. A weak front will dissipate as it reaches the coast
Wednesday afternoon. Light southwest flow aloft. Stable conditions
with increasing low level moisture tonight and Wednesday due to
stronger onshore flow.

Low MVFR or ifr status along the coast is already pushing into the
strait and through the chehalis gap. Onshore gradients suggest
widespread low MVFR CIGS should fill in across the interior by 10-
12z and bit sooner at kolm and kclm. Mixing ahead of the trough
should allow stratus to rise into aVFR stratus deck by around 18z
Wednesday at most spots, except at the coast. Will move up arrival
of status into the ksea kbfi kpae terminals by an hour with the 06z
taf issuance.

Ksea... W-sw wind 5-8 kt, backing to southerly to 5 kt by 12z. There
is high confidence that stratus will move into ksea late tonight,
probably 10z-12z, with ceilings ovc009-015. Stratus should lift to a
vfr deck by 18z and could scatter at times during the afternoon. Dtm

Marine Strong onshore flow will dominate the next couple days as
an approaching trough shifts across the area Thursday. Gale
westerlies are occuring this evening and will persist through much
of tonight. After a lull on Wednesday, westerly gales will likely
develop again in the central east strait Wednesday evening. Winds
will reach small craft strength in waters adjacent to the east
entrance tonight and Wednesday night.

Weaker onshore flow will continue Friday through this weekend, as
high pressure remains off the coast with lower pressure east of the
cascades. Small craft westerlies could develop during the nighttime
hours in the central east strait. Dtm

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... Gale watch from Wednesday afternoon through late Wednesday night
for central u.S. Waters strait of juan de fuca-east
entrance u.S. Waters strait of juan de fuca.

Gale warning until 6 am pdt Wednesday for central u.S. Waters
strait of juan de fuca-east entrance u.S. Waters strait of
juan de fuca.

Small craft advisory from 6 pm this evening to 6 am pdt
Wednesday for admiralty inlet-northern inland waters
including the san juan islands.

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.
