Synopsis High pressure will bring dry and warm conditions to
western washington this week. Expect cooler conditions along the
coast with northwest flow.

Short term A strong upper level ridge will build over the
southwest this week with 500 mb heights rising across the pac nw.

In western wa, temperatures will trend above normal, especially
across the interior with highs in the 80s to lower 90s. The
surface flow is mostly onshore with cooler conditions along the
coast. The coast will also see low level stratus clouds, mainly
during the overnight and morning hours. Morning lows will be in
the 50s to mid 60s. No major changes from the previous forecast.

33

Long term Dry and warm conditions will continue into next
weekend with the strong upper level ridge across the west. The
ridge axis may build into the pac NW and temperatures will remain
warmer than normal. High temperatures in the interior are in the
80s to lower 90s through the period. Relief from the heat is at
the coast where the flow remains onshore. No precip over the next
7 days. 33

Aviation Light westerly flow aloft continues over western
washington today with an upper ridge axis over the offshore waters.

The air mass is dry and stable with the exception of some patchy
shallow stratus producing ifr ceilings near the immediate coastline
this morning. The remainder of the region can expectVFR today. Low
level flow will be weakly onshore through tomorrow for night and
morning stratus near the coast and clear skies over the interior of
western washington.

Ksea...VFR through tomorrow. Surface winds NE 5 to 10 knots becoming
nw during the afternoon hours. 27

Marine Onshore flow turning northerly this morning and remaining
northerly into the start of the upcoming week. Winds over the
coastal waters may brush up to SCA criteria... But have opted to side
with model data suggesting that wind speeds should remain just below
thresholds. Also of note... Winds are expected to remain below sca
thresholds for the strait as well. As such... No headlines are in
effect. SCA winds may return to the strait Monday night. Smr

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
