Synopsis
High pressure builds over the region this weekend. Limited
afternoon thunderstorm chances develop around the cascades, and
perhaps the canadian border, between Sunday and Tuesday.

Otherwise expect dry, warm weather into early next week, with
afternoon highs in the 80s. This mild weather will contribute to
rises on rivers in central and north central washington. A threat
of unsettled weather returns around middle to late next week,
with slightly cooler temperatures.

Discussion
´╗┐today through Sunday: the inland NW will be dominated by a
ridge of high pressure with largely dry and warm conditions. This
morning WV imagery shows the ridge axis near the pacific coastline
and it will slowly edge toward the cascades late today into
tonight. A few high clouds will spill over its top and into
eastern wa north id. Afternoon heating should lead to some cumulus
build-ups around the mountains. There will also be a slim threat
of a shower or two around the mountains near the canadian border.

Otherwise fair conditions are expected, with temperatures pushing
above normal by about 10 degrees under the building ridge. Sunday
the ridge axis edges into eastern wa. The southwest flow that
develops on its backside will carry a weakening disturbance up and
around the cascades. With increasing instability in the heating
of the day this will allowing for a limited threat of showers and
thunderstorm around the cascades and northern mountains by
afternoon. Otherwise dry conditions are expected with thin high
clouds and few cumulus build-ups around the mountains again.

Afternoon high temperatures are expected to be 10-15 degrees above
normal. J. Cote'
Monday and Tuesday... Warm and dry conditions with temperatures
running 10 to 15 degrees above normal will persist through Tuesday
over the region. There will be a small chance of afternoon and
evening thunderstorms mainly over the cascades both afternoons
and early evenings. Any storms will be brief but could remain
nearly stationary over their mountain nurseries long enough to
produce a few tenths of an inch of rain at any particular
location.

Beyond Tuesday models are similar in initiating a break down
phase... But there are differences in the character and details
leading to high confidence of an increased chance of showers and
thunderstorms broadening out over the entire forecast area on
Wednesday and Thursday and a cool down to near normal highs and
lows. The GFS has flip-flopped over the last couple runs to now
being more delayed and less aggressive than the ECMWF model... The
gfs depicts Thursday as the highest threat for significant weather
while the ec models suggests Wednesday will be the day of a
potentially thundery cold front passage. The canadian supports the
ecmwf solution and these models have been more stable and
consistent over the last few runs than the gfs. Thus... The
forecast will reflect a deterioration starting on
Wednesday... With the unsettled showery cool down continuing
Thursday and possibly into Friday... But Wednesday and Thursday
look like the best bet for any precipitation over the region
in general. Fugazzi

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.
