Synopsis No significant weather systems will affect the area
through the end of the week. An upper trough will move through
western canada on Sunday. Strong surface high pressure will build
over british columbia and alberta Monday.

Short term today through Friday A moist air mass is in place
and generally cloudy skies with continue through the night. Patchy
drizzle or an isolated shower or two cannot be ruled out into
Thursday morning. A 1030 mb high will remain over the area with
light winds. There could be a little partial clearing Thursday
afternoon, but the clouds should close back in again Thursday night--
-without offshore flow low clouds are a pretty good bet to redevelop
and persist. A weak upper trough moves through the region Thursday
evening--that shoudn't have much effect on the weather and upper
heights fall off only a little before rising again Friday.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday An upper trough moves
through b.C. And alberta Sunday and that allows cooler air and a
1044mb high center to build up near the b.C. Alberta border by
daybreak Monday. Offshore flow will develop across western
washington--sunny weather is a good bet for the first part of next
week.

Aviation An upper ridge will move over the area tonight and
Thursday with northwest flow aloft. At the surface, weak high
pressure will be over the area. The air mass is moist and stable.

Low clouds will be widespread tonight then decrease a bit on
Thursday.

Ksea... Low clouds will remain over the area tonight, perhaps
lifting somewhat in the afternoon hours with a few sunbreaks. If
there is any clearing late Thursday afternoon, the stratus
should redevelop again Thursday night. Light wind.

Marine Weak high pressure over the area through Saturday will
result in relatively light winds. 10-12 foot west swell over the
coastal waters will subside below 10 feet Thursday morning.

Northerly offshore flow will develop on Sunday as high pressure
builds over british columbia. Offshore flow will weaken and turn
more easterly on Monday.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
