Marine Weather and Tides
Lofall, WA

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 Showers and thunderstorms over the mountains are
ending this evening. Onshore flow will bring cooler marine air
inland Thursday and Friday. High pressure aloft will cross the
region this weekend, followed by an upper trough early next week.

Short term Showers and thunderstorms over the mountains are
ending this evening. Marine stratus will spread inland overnight as
marine air pushes into the area. There might be some drizzle along
the coast tonight and Thursday morning. Temps will remain cool on
the coast and drop considerably for the rest of western washington,
with highs in the upper 60s and 70s along the i-5 corridor thu.

Another upper trough will move into western washington Thursday
night and Friday. This feature will be better defined, but will
only bring a chance of light showers to the area -- mainly the
coast, mountains, and eventually in the puget sound convergence
zone Friday evening. Friday will be a bit cooler yet, with highs
mainly in the mid 60s to lower 70s.

An upper level ridge will follow... Starting to impact the area
during the overnight hours Friday night and dry conditions and
warmer temperatures expected for Saturday. Temperatures will
increase only a few degrees with mid to upper 60s expected along the
coast and low to mid 70s in the interior lowlands.

Long term The aforementioned ridge does not last very long over
the area as the ridge axis exiting Saturday night and the feature
itself east of the area by late Sunday morning... Setting up the next
main weather factor over the area... An upper level trough with its
associated low situated well north of the canadian border. Models
still not really syncing up with this feature when it comes to the
details... And precip signatures with both GFS and ECMWF are pretty
weak... So while pops are present in the extended... They are confined
to the northern third of the CWA and only get as high as low-end
chance wording... While partly to mostly sunny skies are expected for
the remainder of the area. This feature will keep temps over W wa
right near seasonal normals... With lowland temps hovering right
around 70 degrees. Smr

Aviation Light southwest flow aloft tonight will become more
westerly Thursday. The air mass is moist and unstable in mid and
upper levels with thunderstorms over the cascades and olympics and
adjacent lowlands. Most convection should die out by sunset at 04z.

Thunderstorms may impact the terminals around puget sound before
then and they are carried in several tafs.

Low level onshore flow will become strong this evening and will
bring a marine layer inland across much of the interior of western
washington for ifr or low MVFR ceilings Thursday morning.

Ksea... Discussion above applies. TAF has a tempo group for thunder
23z-03z. Ceilings will beVFR until after 11z when marine stratus
will bring MVFR ceilings. Northwest wind 4-8 kt this afternoon
becoming southerly 5-10 kt overnight. Chb

Marine Strong onshore flow will develop late this afternoon and
tonight. A gale warning is in effect for the strait, with small
craft advisories for adjacent waters.

Moderate to strong onshore pressure gradients will continue each day
through the weekend. Winds of at least small craft advisory strength
are likely each day in the strait, with gale force winds possible
each day. For now have kept winds 20-30 kt each afternoon and
evening. Chb

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... Gale warning until 5 am pdt Thursday for central u.S. Waters
strait of juan de fuca-east entrance u.S. Waters strait of
juan de fuca.

Small craft advisory until 3 am pdt Thursday for admiralty inlet-
northern inland waters including the san juan islands-west
entrance u.S. Waters strait of juan de fuca.

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.
