Synopsis Temperatures will slowly rebound on today, with
enough moisture and instability for a few afternoon showers and
thunderstorms over the cascades. A warm and dry upper ridge axis off
the coast on Friday will pass directly over western washington on
Saturday. Its warm and dry influence will continue from Sunday
through Tuesday, including memorial day.

Short term Mostly clear skies over western washington have
allowed for temperatures to once again fall into the 40s area-
wide... Just as they did 24 hours ago. With upper level ridging over
the pacific pushing inland throughout the short term... Will expect
to see temperatures gradually climb through the period. Afternoon
highs today should be approx 5-10 degrees warmer than
yesterday... Depending on location... Bringing the temperature spread
over W wa from the lower 60s along the coast to near 70 in the
interior lowlands. A section of instability on the back edge of the
exiting trough looks to set up over the cascades this afternoon and
evening... Allowing for the chance for showers and thunderstorms to
develop over that area. LI values end up being fairly limited... Only
-1 or -2... With CAPE equally unimpressive... So have limited thunder
to chance or slight chance and this falls in line with surrounding
offices.

As this upper level ridge continues to push inland... A dry and warm
forecast resumes allowing for temperatures to reach into the upper
70s to low 80s in the interior lowlands for memorial day weekend. Smr

Long term Beyond the holiday... The first half of next week seems
to want to transition a bit. Starting with late Monday
night... Models remain consistent on some degree of instability and
scattered precip signatures possibly signaling a bit of a marine
push... Though not nearly as intense as the previous one. Still looks
to be enough to start cooling temps with afternoon highs Tue falling
back into the upper 70s for the interior. This downward trend will
continue as an upper level trough starts to approach the area by
midweek... Where we finally start to see the prospect of showers re-
enter the forecast. Smr

Aviation
Wrn wa will remain between a ridge of high pres offshore and an
upper level trof over the interior w. This will maintain the nly
flow aloft over the area. The low level flow will remain weak
onshore. The air mass will become unstable over the cascades this
afternoon for a risk of isold tstms. The threat will end after
sunset.

Meanwhile, expect areas of MVFR CIGS and patchy MVFR vsbys (due to
fog) til 1800 utc over the coast and SW interior (roughly S of a
line from kshn to ktcm).

Ksea...VFR. Light and variable winds will become NW near 10 knots
this afternoon.

Marine
High pressure centered over the northeast pacific along with lower
pressure east of the cascades will result in light onshore flow
through Friday. The offshore high will weaken and redevelop farther
west on Saturday, causing the flow to become light northerly.

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... Small craft advisories for hazardous seas are in effect for
the coastal waters and west entrance to the strait of juan
de fuca.

Small craft advisory for rough bar in effect until 7 am this
morning for the grays harbor bar.

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.
