Synopsis The chilly low pressure system that has been over the
region the past couple of days will slowly move east through
Thursday for a gradual drying and warming trend. High pressure
aloft will prevail on Friday for sunnier, drier, and warmer
conditions.

Short term
Showers have been mainly confined to the southwest quarter of the
cwa overnight. There will be a slight northward shift of the
precip band during the next few hours as it pivots around the
upper level low and becomes east-west oriented. The heavier
precip is expected to be south of the cwa. The air mass will be
marginally unstable today. It looks like the best chance of
thunderstorms will be over the coastal waters.

Meanwhile, the chilly upper level trof that has been over the
region the past couple of days will move slowly east through
Thursday. This will not only cause the flow aloft to become
northerly but will also allow for a gradual drying and warming
trend.

Expect the region to become more under the influence of an
amplified upper level ridge centered well offshore on Friday. The
main impact will be sunnier, drier, and warmer conditions.

Long term
The medium range solutions were suggesting that the tail end of
frontal systems passing to our north might bring a threat of light
rain to the northwest part of the CWA this weekend into Monday.

The GFS was starting to come more in line with the wetter ecmwf
solution. For now, decided to keep the inherited dry forecast but
will need to introduce rain if the 1200 utc cycle continues with
the idea of wetter conditions. At any rate, expect the ridge to be
a bit dirty (mid and or high clouds streaming across the area)
through Monday.

Anticipate the upper ridge to rebound the end of the period for
dry weather with near normal temps.

Aviation Upper level trough over the area with light flow aloft
becoming northerly this afternoon and evening. Air mass remaining
moist and somewhat unstable with a drying trend north portion
after 00z.

Multiple cloud layers between about 2000 feet and 7000 feet this
morning with the 2000 foot deck becoming predominately broken
12z-15z. Local ceilings below 1000 feet until 18z. Ceilings
improving this afternoon with the lower cloud layer dissipating
leaving a scattered to broken decks around 4000 and 600 feet.

Clearing from the north tonight.

Ksea... Ceilings 1000-2000 feet early withVFR ceilings by 19z.

Southerly winds 4 to 8 knots switching to northwesterly around
19z. Felton

Marine Trough moving over oregon today with surface gradients
remaining light. Weak surface low moving south through the coastal
waters Thursday morning. High pressure building in on Friday and
remaining over the weekend. Felton

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... Small craft advisory from 6 pm this evening to 2 am pdt Thursday
for coastal waters from CAPE flattery to james island 10 to
60 nm-coastal waters from james island to point grenville
10 to 60 nm-coastal waters from point grenville to cape

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.
