Tight pressure gradients associated with this low will give gales to the coastal waters and small craft advisory conditions to the inland waters through this evening. Combined seas 30 to 35 feet will affect the coastal waters through this evening. Additional fronts will reach the waters later Saturday through early next week.

Synopsis Moist southerly flow will continue today for
additional showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms. Large
waves generated by a deep low pressure offshore will impact the
washington coast today. Friday through Saturday will be showery
with an upper trough over the area. Additional fronts will move
through the area Sunday and around Tuesday night.

Short term Coastal flood update... Strong southwest winds
offshore have generated a large and energetic swell of 30-35 ft
at 18 or 19 seconds that are moving onto the coastline. The swell
will continue through this evening before slowly diminishing.

Waves will run up on beaches far beyond where they normally do
producing significant beach erosion. The breaking waves will
result in a piling up of water along the coastline. Low
atmospheric pressure and southwest winds are contributing to tides
that are running 1.5 feet above predicted values. The combination
of all of these effects will result in saltwater flooding in low-
lying coastal communities such as ocean shores, westport, and
taholah.

A strong pacific system sent a cold front inland overnight for
gusty winds, heavy showers and thunderstorms. The threat for
additional showers and thunderstorms will continue today as the
southerly 150kt jet shifts east of the crest. The surface low,
around 965 mb off haida gwaii, will gradually stall then
fill weaken through Friday. By Friday night, the low is around 995
mb as it passes inland through the queen charlotte sound.

Friday will be cool and unstable with a deep trough over the
west. The cooler air mass will knock snow levels down to around
2,000 ft in the mountains. We may see a brief break on Saturday
with weak upper level ridging. Sunday is looking more active as a
wetter frontal system moves inland. It'll be windy along the
coast and north interior with heavy snow possible in the
mountains. 33

Long term The forecast will remain unsettled through the middle
of next week as a series of fronts track through the region.

Temperatures are trending a few degrees below normal. The models
are trying to build a ridge over the pac NW late next week but a
warm front over b.C. Is clipping us for some rain. No major
changes from the previous forecast. 33

Aviation Strong southwest flow aloft will continue through
tonight around a strong and expansive low that is sitting about
200 nm west of the northern tip of vancouver island. The air mass
moving around this low is moist and unstable. Showers can be
expected across the area through tonight. There will be a threat
of thunderstorms this morning in the interior and through this
evening along the coast. Ceilings and visibilities will be
variable withVFR to MVFR conditions between showers, and
conditions dropping to lower end MVFR to ifr in heavier showers.

Albrecht
ksea... Expect showers with gusty south to southwest winds through
tonight. South winds generally 12-15 knots with gusts 22-25
knots. Ceilings 050 will drop to 2500 ft at times in heavier
showers. Visibilities p6sm falling to 3-5sm in heavier showers.

Albrecht

Marine A deep low centered near 51n 134w will gradually fill
as it slowly moves to the north tip of vancouver island Friday.

Strong southwest flow will continue through tonight with gales
over the coastal waters and widespread small craft advisory
conditions over the inland waters. Conditions will slowly improve
late Thursday night and Friday.

Weaker troughs will move through the waters Friday night and
Saturday. A series of rather strong fronts will move across the
waters Sunday through the middle of next week. Albrecht

Hydrology River flooding is not expected for the next 7 days.

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.
