Synopsis A weak warm front will spread inland on Saturday
night, with light rain preceding the front today and this evening.

Rain will increase on Sunday as a cold front sags southward into
western washington. A strengthening low center will pass across
southern vancouver island on Tuesday, and a strong trailing cold
front will bring wind and heavy mountain snow. Lingering showers
will continue Wednesday, then an upper ridge will bring dry
weather on Thursday and Friday.

Short term A warm front will spread across western washington
tonight. Preceding the front today and this evening, light rain
and light mountain snow will gradually expand as isentropic lift
increases. Some locations will see overnight temperatures increase
a little tonight due to the warm front.

On Sunday, an east-west oriented cold front will slowly sag
southward into western washington and then turn up stationary over
the area on Sunday night and Monday. This will help to focus more
rain across the area on Sunday and Monday, with strong west flow
aloft further enhancing lift and precip over the cascades.

Snowfall forecasts on Sunday pm are such that a winter weather
advisory will eventually be needed over the cascades. Haner

Long term Models agree in cyclogenesis on Monday between 130w
and 140w as a vigorous upper trough preceded by lots of divergence
aloft interacts with a leftover surface front. All models show the
low center moving across southern or central vancouver island on
Tuesday. The low center will still be in the process of deepening
as it moves by to the north. Meanwhile, a strong trailing cold
front will sweep across western washington on Tuesday. The
abundance of large-scale lift will lead to a period of heavy
precip in advance of the cold front. Heavy snow should occur over
the mountains. Still watching wind potential on Tuesday, partly
because winds tend to pick up more with the passage of low centers
that are still in the process of strengthening.

A compact upper low with very cold air aloft will spread across
the forecast area early Wednesday, leading to plenty of post-
frontal convective showers.

An upper ridge axis will strengthen and amplify near 135w on
Wednesday, then move east to near 130w on Thursday. This will dry
out the weather quite readily on Wednesday night. With the upper
ridge axis continuing near 130w on Thursday and Friday, cool and
dry weather is expected at that time. Haner

Aviation Northerly flow aloft today will become westerly
tonight as a warm front reaches the area. The air mass is
stable. There will be a mix of clouds today. Moisture will
increase at all levels tonight as a warm front arrives.

Ksea... It looks like a mix of clouds today - hard to get much
more specific than that. The afternoon looks like the most likely
period of higher ceilings. Low clouds should become prevalent
tonight as a warm front arrives. Southerly wind 4-8 knots.

Schneider

Marine Onshore flow will ease this morning. A warm front will
move into the area tonight and Sunday for a round of small craft
advisory southerly winds most waters.

Monday will be a lull in between weather systems. A vigorous
frontal system will move through the area Monday night and
Tuesday with gale force winds possible for the coastal waters.

Offshore flow will develop Wednesday. Schneider

Hydrology River flooding is not expected the next 7 days.

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.
