Updated Aviation Discussion
SHORT TERM. Today through Friday night. Satellite showing a fairly strong warm front is moving into the Pacific northwest early this morning. As the front moves across the forecast area today rain and mountain snow likely. The warm advection will cause snow levels to rise. Surface gradients are not that strong as the low center is located well offshore. At most could have some locally breezy southerly winds later today. The region will continue to have a series of upper level troughs and fronts move through over the next couple of days. This will maintain mostly cloudy skies with periods of rain and higher mountain snow. Southwesterly flow aloft will keep the airmass mild with freezing levels at 5-7k feet. High temps will be in the 40s to lower 50s.
LONG TERM. Saturday through Wednesday . The progressive flow pattern will continue through the long term period. Deterministic models are in good agreement through Monday but begin to diverge Monday night through the middle of next week. Saturday and Saturday night look to be particularly wet and mild as two surface lows travel north across WA/OR with warm air advection east of the Cascades. Although there are some minor differences in the position of the secondary low Saturday night, all show decent amounts of QPF with a hint of an atmospheric river Saturday night. Snow levels early Saturday will be around 3500-4000 feet, therefore at least a couple inches of snow can be expected in the mountains before snow changes to rain for elevations below 5k-6k feet. There will likely be sharp rises along rivers and streams during this time, and minor flooding is possible. I do not anticipate any substantial runoff for major hydrological concerns, as the ground is likely moist but not frozen. A cold front is progged to lower snow levels down to near 3500 feet Sunday night followed by scattered rain and mountain snow showers Monday in a W-NW flow aloft. Confidence in the long range forecast is not strong the remainder of the forecast period, but it appears that it will be a continued chance of rain and mountain snow. The devil is in the details on timing and strength of additional Pacific fronts. Wister
AVIATION. 12Z TAFs . VFR conditions will give way to MVFR/IFR by mid morning as precipitation spreads east of the Cascades. The only exception will be at KRDM and KBDN where precipitation will be light and will lift north into WA tonight and Thursday morning. Precipitation will begin as a snow/rain mix at KYKM then change to all rain this afternoon. Conditions at all TAF sites will gradually improve to VFR tonight as the warm front lifts north and out of the region. Winds will be 10 kts or less through 12Z/23rd. Wister

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

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.
