Synopsis Showers will develop Monday afternoon as an upper level
low moves southeast into oregon. The weather will be drier after
about Tuesday, with a chance of afternoon showers each day mainly
limited to the cascades. A warming trend will begin Wednesday, with
highs each day in the 70s, or possibly low 80s over the weekend.

Short term tonight through Wednesday Shower activity looked
impressive in the cascades this afternoon but it has decreased over
the last two hours. There is still a slight chance a stray shower
could reach the puget sound area in easterly flow aloft, but there
won't be any thunderstorms. Otherwise, tonight will be dry across
the area.

An upper level low will slide south of the area Monday into Tuesday
ushering additional moisture into western washington. Showers will
be around Monday morning into Monday night. ECMWF keeps showers
around into Tuesday afternoon with GFS generally drying the area
out, so some pops kept in for Tuesday. High temperatures on Monday
will be in the upper 50s to low 60s with some warming into Tuesday
with highs in the mid 60s.

An upper level ridge will build offshore Tuesday night into
Wednesday with an upper level low across the interior west. Ecmwf
continues to suggest some moisture across the area Wednesday
afternoon while GFS keeps any precip chances in the cascades. Slight
chance of pops kept for Wednesday with high temperatures a bit
warmer in the upper 60s to low 70s. Jd burke

Long term Thursday through Sunday An upper level low will
linger over the interior west Thursday with an upper level ridge
offshore. Slight chance of pops for Thursday with temperatures in
the low to mid 70s. Models indicate a quick shortwave may pass by to
the west on Friday bringing with it cooler temperatures with a
slightly elevated chance for pops, though Friday may still be on the
drier side. A ridge may build offshore Saturday into Sunday keeping
the area mainly dry. Temperatures may warm into the mid to upper 70s
over the weekend. Jd

Aviation Easterly flow aloft will become light overnight then
increasingly southeasterly on Monday as next system approaches the
offshore waters. Ceilings areVFR except MVFR on the coast. Low
level onshore flow is expected to bring low level moisture inland
overnight, giving low MVFR ceilings over much of western washington
by daybreak Monday. Shower coverage will gradually ramp up through
the day Monday as a negative tilt upper trough approaches the region.

Ksea...VFR conditions expected through this evening with most shower
outside the vicinity of the terminal. Ceilings will lower to MVFR by
09z-12z. Surface winds SW 5-10 kt. 27 chb

Marine Onshore flow increased enough to give a few hours of
low end gale westerlies to the strait, and a gale warning is now in
effect. Small craft advisory winds will occur in the outflow areas
of the strait. Current thinking based on recent model solutions is
for wind speeds over the coastal waters and puget sound to be under
sca criteria with Monday's system. Onshore flow expected to dominate
from Tuesday through the remainder of the week for advisory level
winds over the coastal waters and strait at times. 27 chb

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

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.
