Marine Weather and Tides
Edmonds, 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 An upper trough will move inland tonight. A puget
sound convergence zone is likely tonight. An upper ridge will
bring sunny and warmer weather this weekend. An upper trough will
arrive Monday for cooler weather and an increase in marine layer
clouds again.

Short term A puget sound convergence zone is possible tonight
as an upper trough moves inland--at 8pm showers were starting to
develop in that area between chimacum and port ludlow, so in a few
hours we might have a decent pscz going.

An upper ridge will move over the area on Saturday for dry weather.

Morning clouds should give way to some afternoon sunshine and highs
will creep up a few degrees. The upper ridge will shift inland on
Sunday with an upper trough offshore and an approaching weak frontal
system. It should be a mostly sunny day with highs warming a few
more degrees. The aforementioned frontal system will move through
the area Sunday night. It will be weakening as it moves onshore and
rain will be spotty. A few showers will linger into Monday as an
upper trough settles over the area. Onshore flow will keep skies
mostly cloudy and highs will cool 10-15 degrees.

Long term Weak high pressure aloft will move over the area
Tuesday and Wednesday followed by a weak upper trough Thursday and
Friday. Onshore flow will continue through the period. Night and
morning clouds are likely each day with some afternoon sunshine.

Temperatures will be near or slightly above normal. Isolated
showers are possible at times but no organized systems area
expected. The general trend will be for showers to increase late
in the week. The GFS is wetter than the ECMWF and gem Thursday
and Friday. The forecast leans more to the drier ECMWF for now.

Schneider

Aviation At 8pm radar shows showers between the hood canal bridge
and port townsend extending across admiralty inlet--this area of
showers should develop into a pscz this evening.

A weak upper level trough will move east of the region tonight, and
an upper level ridge will build offshore Saturday. Flow aloft will
be northwesterly. Moderate to strong low level onshore flow will
continue tonight and Saturday. The air mass is stable with low level
moisture.

Ksea... Some showers are starting to develop at 03z and those could
become a pscz and drift down toward seattle later this evening.

Marine Onshore flow will continue through the period. Westerlies
will continue in the strait of juan de fuca--rising to at least 20-
30 kt each evening, but possibly reaching gale force for a few
hours.

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

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

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.
