Synopsis Rain and mountain snow showers will continue through
this afternoon. A series of weather systems will move through
western washington through Tuesday of next week. High pressure
aloft will bring mainly dry weather for the second half of next
week.

Short term tonight through Tuesday Strong and moist W NW flow
continues across western wa this afternoon for showers across the
region. The air mass remains slightly unstable with a slight
chance of afternoon and early evening thunderstorms possible in
the interior. Overall, showers will decrease in coverage as the
evening progresses. However, we may see lingering showers over
snohomish or king county with a convergence zone. This may impact
stevens pass and will extend the winter weather advisory for the
central cascades.

More wet weather is on tap for Sunday as another front pushes
inland. This system is warmer with slightly higher snow levels in
the mountains - snow levels rising to around 5,000 ft. We may see
a puget sound convergence zone form Sunday evening as post-frontal
onshore flow increases. This convergence zone will diminish
overnight as the flow turns offshore again.

Snow levels will rise further on Monday as a warm front clips the
area. The coast and west slopes of the cascades may see periods of
moderate to heavy rain, although river flooding is not expected.

Seattle may see some rain shadowing with westerly, downslope winds
off the olympics. A cold front will push S SE Monday evening with
showers tapering off.

A weak upper level disturbance in the NW flow may trigger a few
more showers as we move into Tuesday, mainly affecting the coast
and mountains. Temperatures through the period will remain a few
degrees cooler than normal. 33

Long term Wednesday through Saturday An upper level ridge
will build into the pac NW by the middle of next week for drier
weather. The ridge flattens by Thursday night or Friday as a
frontal system passes through southern b.C. Dry, northerly flow
may develop over the weekend as a high-amplitude ridge forms
offshore. 33

Aviation The upper level trough that moved over the region this
morning has moved well off to the east this afternoon. Flow aloft
is northwesterly, while an increase of onshore flow persists at
the surface. The air mass remains moist and is somewhat unstable.

Current radar indicates that the widespread rain across the
region this morning is starting to move off to the east towards
the cascades. The increase in low level onshore flow will allow
for a potential convergence zone to form near the king snohomish
county line later this afternoon and evening. Thunderstorms will
still be possible across portions of the sound over the next
several hours, especially within any stronger cells that develop
within the convergence zone. Current conditions remain a mixed bag
across the terminals at this hour-from ifr for areas in heavier
showers toVFR for areas that have cleared out. Most terminals
along the sound remain MVFR or ifr at this hour, however expect
some improvement in conditions for a period late this afternoon
and evening before ceilings sink back to MVFR across much of the
region late tonight.

Ksea... Current conditions MVFR with a few light showers in the
vicinity of the terminal. Could still see some improvement in
ceilings by late afternoon. Most convergence zone activity this
afternoon should remain north of the terminal. Surface winds
primarily SE 5 to 8 knots becoming SW 5 to 10 knots this evening.

14

Marine Onshore flow has increased across the waters in the wake
of a system moving onshore this morning. A gale warning remains
in effect this afternoon and evening for the central and eastern
strait of juan de fuca associated with a strong push of westerlies.

In addition, small craft advisories remain in effect for the
coastal waters, the western strait, and admiralty inlet, and puget
sound through this evening. Active weather will continue over the
next few days, with a warm front approaching the area on Sunday
and yet another frontal system approaching the area on Monday.

Onshore flow Tuesday will diminish by Wednesday as high pressure
builds over the area. 14

Hydrology River flooding is unlikely over the next 7 days.

However, rainfall will cause rises on area rivers.

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.
