SHORT TERM. Today through Saturday night . Another very warm day is in store today under dry northwesterly flow. During the afternoon, a short wave trough/weak front will move through the region. This feature will cause the pressure gradient to tighten behind it and winds will increase along and behind the front. With breezy winds especially in the Kittitas Valley and the Columbia Gorge and low relative humidity values there are enhanced fire weather concerns. However, it still appears as though we should remain below criteria for fire weather headlines. The only chance of any precipitation, however small it may be is on Friday morning to early afternoon. During this time there could be a few showers along the Washington Cascades in the west to northwest flow. There will be some gusty winds again Friday afternoon, but relative humidity values will be higher.
Winds shift to the northwest again by Friday afternoon and remain that through the remainder of the short term period. This will keep dry conditions over the area.
Temperatures today will be similar to Wednesday from the upper 80s to the mid 90s, but behind the front on Friday, temperatures will be on average 5 to 8 degrees cooler, mainly in the 80s to around 90. Then on Saturday, high temperatures look to be perhaps a couple of degrees warmer then on Friday.
LONG TERM. Sunday through Wednesday. West to northwest flow over the area Sunday, followed by some ridging and hot conditions through mid week. Currently the hottest day is expected to be Tuesday with readings around 100 in the Lower Columbia Basin. The very hot temperatures may be short lived, persisting through Wednesday, with variety of models and ensembles showing a trough of low pressure along the coast or even a closed low over northern California by late Wednesday that would move inland later in the week. 93
AVIATION. 12z Tafs. VFR conditions will prevail through the period. High level cirrus will be increasing through the day. Winds will be less than 10 kts through midday Thursday then winds will increase 12-20g20-30kts in the afternoon through evening, decreasing to under 10 kts after 06. 93

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.
