Synopsis An upper level low will approach the area through
today and move over the pacific northwest on Wednesday. The low
will be over the area through Friday. The low will slide east on
Friday into Saturday with a weak trough over the area on Sunday.

Short term today through Thursday Satellite imagery shows a
swath of mid to high level clouds sliding north across W wa this
morning. An upper level low located near 48n 136w will continue to
slide southeast through today with the low positioned offshore of
the or wa coast by late this afternoon. Expect a mix of clouds
and sunshine through this afternoon with increasing clouds with
the next system on approach. A few showers may develop, especially
across the mountains and southern portions of the cwa, late this
afternoon with the destabilizing airmass. Temperatures will be in
the mid 60s along the coast with low to mid 70s across the
interior.

The upper level low will slide east tonight and be positioned
along the or coast by Wednesday afternoon. Flow aloft will become
more south to southeasterly. Increasing instability on Wednesday
with daytime heating will increase pops for Wednesday afternoon.

Models soundings show lifted indices in the cascades varying from
the -1 to -5 range with CAPE values near 1000 j kg, this would
suggest at least the chance for afternoon thunderstorms across the
cascades. Upper level winds from 700mb to 500mb will generally be
south to southeasterly but only around 150-160 degrees, so will
keep thunderstorms in the cascades. If winds trend more
southeasterly, at least a slight chance of thunderstorms will be
possible in the foothills. Some showers will otherwise be around
the interior Wednesday with high temperatures in the 60s to low
70s in spots.

The upper level low will slowly slide east Wednesday night into
Thursday but continue to be over the pac nw. Showers will continue
to be around. Thursday will be the coolest day of the week with
the upper level low overhead with highs in the low to mid 60s
across the area. Jd

Long term Friday through Monday Extended models have a little
bit different solutions but the same weather over western
washington. The ECMWF keeps the upper level low in the vicinity
through the extended period with the low weakening over the
weekend into Monday. The GFS kicks the low off to the east on
Saturday with a weak upper level trough coming in behind the low
for Sunday and then a weak upper level ridge trying to build on
Monday. Both solutions keep the threat of showers over the area
Friday and Saturday with a drying trend for Sunday and Monday.

Highs only in the 60s Friday and Saturday. Low level flow
remaining onshore Sunday and Monday so highs just a little
warmer, in the 60s to lower 70s perhaps a few mid 70s by Monday.

Felton

Aviation Southwest flow aloft becomes southerly late today as
an upper trough digs southward over the offshore waters. Moisture
will be increasing in the mid and upper levels through the day. The
air mass will become marginally unstable this afternoon with a
chance for a thunderstorm mainly over the mountains. The air mass
will continue to moisten overnight, but MVFR ceilings look to be
confined to areas near the coast on Wednesday morning.VFR ceilings
expected for the remainder of the region through midday Wednesday.

Ksea...VFR with increasing high and mid level moisture. Surface
winds light and variable this morning becoming w-nw less than 10
knots this afternoon. Wind backing to light southerly after 06z
tonight. 27

Marine An upper level low will move into the offshore coastal
waters and will linger in the region throughout the week. This
will maintain onshore flow across the area over the next several
days. Flow will be strong enough to produce small craft strength
westerlies along the central and eastern strait of juan de fuca
during most afternoons and evenings. Other waters will remain below
advisory criteria. 14

Hydrology The daily hydrology discussion has ended until the
start of the next rainy season; it will only be updated as needed
until then.

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... Small craft advisory from 5 pm this afternoon to 5 am pdt
Wednesday for central u.S. Waters strait of juan de fuca-
east 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.
