Synopsis Much above average temperatures will be the rule
through the week ahead across the inland portion of western
washington. The coast will be cooler than the rest of the region
with low clouds or fog along the beaches at times.

Short term Much above average temps will occur across the
interior of western washington in the days ahead. Skies will be
clear--except for the ocean beaches which will have shallow marine
low clouds or fog at times. Highs will range from the upper 60s to
mid 70s along the coastal beaches to the 80s away from the water--
with lower 90s in the normally warm areas of the interior and i-5
corridor. The cascade valleys and southwest washington south of
olympia should have highs of 90 to 95. We might see a couple of
record daily high temperature records set--but looking at sea-tac,
most records look like they're out of reach except for perhaps the
record high temp for july 26th which is 92--set in 1971. That could
be doable as seattle flirts with highs near 90 each day.

Long term Warm and dry weather continues into next weekend. The
ridge axis may bulge a bit toward western washington so there is a
chance that the warmest days will be around the end of the week or
over next weekend. The coast will continue to have cooling sea
breezes, fog banks, or low clouds at times--fog could squirt into
the strait of juan de fuca each night--a pretty good westerly push
is likely each evening in the strait. Looking the wrfgfs, there's
little difference in the low cloud 0-3kft cloud mixing ratio each
day--and using that as a guide, there is a chance that fog could
even reach whidbey island starting midweek, but for now I have only
put a little fog on the coast each morning.

Aviation Weak westerly flow aloft through Monday. Air mass stable
and mainly dry. Low level moisture and patchy ifr stratus along the
washington coast. Otherwise mostly clear withVFR skies.

Ksea... Clear skies through Monday. Surface winds N to NW 5 to 10 kt
becoming NE during the evening. N to NW wind 5 to 10 kt on Monday.

Marine Surface high pressure over b.C. Will produce mostly light
or northerly flow over the waters through the week. Winds over the
coastal waters may approach small craft strength up to 20 kt at
times. Typical diurnally driven westerly winds may reach small craft
strengthen at times in the central and eastern strait. A small craft
advisory is in effect for that area this evening.

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... Small craft advisory central and eastern strait this evening.

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.
