Synopsis A frontal system will produce widespread light rain
Wednesday through Thursday morning. Drier and cooler air arrives
behind the front. Then warmer weather is expected for the weekend.

Short term Wednesday through Friday... A weak warm front will bring
light rain to the coast early this morning, spreading inland later
today with what looks like a secondary warm front. A trailing cold
front will continue rain chances as it moves inland through Wednesday
night. Rainfall will be highest along the coast and higher terrain of
sw washington and extreme north oregon where 0.25 to 0.5 inches of
rain is possible from this morning through tonight. Expect much less
rain for the interior lowlands, likely less than 0.10 inches.

Drier north flow moves in behind the cold front Thursday afternoon,
which will allow the dew point temperatures to lower to near or below
50 Thursday night, and the minimum temperatures in the low to mid
50s, likely 10 degrees cooler than what we've been seeing over the
last week or so. A weak shortwave trough may generate some drizzle
along the north coast Friday morning, but otherwise expect dry
weather Friday with clearing in the afternoon and daytime
temperatures warming into the upper 70s. Not much in the way of
forecast changes overall in the short term. Bowen

Long term Friday night through Tuesday... A high pressure ridge
builds over northwest oregon and southwest washington through Monday.

This will keep conditions fairly clear and dry through the
weekend with warming temperatures. Models are hesitating a little bit
regarding exactly how warm it will get, so didn't end up changing
temperatures much at all. Hopefully models will get into better
agreement over the next 24 hours. The ridge begins to weaken Monday
night as an upper trough approaches from the northwest. However, will
only see a little bit in the way of cooling by Tuesday. Overall, the
long term looks dry and seasonably warm. Bowen

Aviation A warm front moves into western wa this morning and
brushes the north or coast as well. A cold front follows later
this afternoon and evening. GenerallyVFR across the area with
spots of MVFR at the coast. Expect the MVFR or lower conditions
to become widespread after 12z at the coast with light rain
starting shortly after. Rain tapers off tonight for the coast.

Inland areas... Should see some MVFR CIGS develop for a few hours
this morning. Areas from ksle southward have less cloud cover
and is probably more prone to radiational cooling for stratus
development. CIGS that develop will probably be in the 1500-2500
ft range based on forecast soundings. Looks likeVFR should
prevail inland but better chances for MVFR develop late in the
afternoon and evening.

Kpdx and approaches...VFR prevailing with CIGS in the 4000-7000
ft range. There is moderate confidence for MVFR CIGS around
1500-2500 feet 12-17z. After 00z CIGS will probably lower to 4000
ft and may occasionally lower to around 3000 ft this evening.

Marine Wind have been slowly increasing overnight and is close
to most model forecasts. It appears the small craft advisory is
on track for today so no changes to the headlines. Wind gusts
between 21 and 30 kt in the northern waters expected for most of
the day. The southern waters have an advisory for a shorter time
period late this morning.

High pressure begins to rebuild offshore on Thursday and
strengthens for the weekend. This will result in a return to
northerly winds through early next week. Gusts of 25-30 kt can
be expected for the weekend with the strongest winds beyond 10 nm
offshore.

Seas start in the 3 to 4 ft range, then build to around 8 feet
Thursday morning. Seas will be choppy as this system passes with
the potential for square seas on Thursday morning. Seas will
stay above 5 ft through the weekend. The larger seas are a
product of the increased wind wave height from the short wave
system that moves through Wednesday night into Thursday but also
from a swell out of the NW that will be the dominant swell
throughout the forecast time period. -bphillips mh
