836 am pdt Sat aug 17 2019

Synopsis Onshore flow through the weekend as a weak weather
system passes mostly to the north of western washington. A ridge
will strengthen early next week for warmer temperatures and more
sun. A weak front is expected around the middle of next week with
a chance for showers and cooler temperatures.

Short term today through Monday Onshore flow with stratus
across the majority of western washington this morning. A weak
impulse will slide north of the area this afternoon into this
evening with a few showers around in the north cascades and
possibly some weak convergence north of seattle this evening into
early tonight. Otherwise generally dry conditions with a few
spots of sunshine in places especially this afternoon. High
temperatures this afternoon will be in the mid 60s to mid 70s.

Generally dry weather for Sunday with just a slight chance for
showers across the northern tier of the area as another system
passes by to the north. Morning clouds with a bit more clearing
expected Sunday afternoon for some sunshine. Dry weather through
Monday as upper level ridging builds into the area. Weak offshore
flow by Monday afternoon with additional sunshine and warmer
temperatures. Temperatures generally in the 70s Sunday and Monday
across the area. Jd

Long term Tuesday through Friday Upper ridging continues to
strengthen into Tuesday as an upper trough lifts northeastward
well offshore. Light offshore flow will turn rather quickly
onshore by later in the day, but not before much of the interior
sees what will probably be the warmest day of the week with areas
from about everett southward getting into the 80s.

Whatever is left of a weak front will move onshore on Wednesday.

The 00z model runs have backed off with pops for the midweek front
compared to their 12z predecessors. Given the model inconsistencies,
not much was changed with the midweek forecast. For the rest of
the extended period, zonal flow aloft and typical summertime low
level onshore flow make climo temps and dry conditions a safe bet.

27

Aviation Weak low level onshore flow continuing through the
weekend. Northwesterly flow aloft becoming westerly on Sunday.

Much like 24 hours ago... W wa socked in with clouds with mostly MVFR
conditions in place... Although terminals from kpae northward have
cigs intoVFR criteria. Expecting some improvement in the form of
low level clouds at or below 2000 ft to scatter out after 20-22z
this afternoon... But bkn-ovc conditions are expected to remain at or
around 5000 ft for most locations. Thus... WhileVFR conditions will
eventually emerge... Not expecting much of an opportunity to catch
any peeks of blue sky. With the low level flow remaining light
onshore low clouds will reform in the 1000-2000 foot range early
Sunday morning bringing a return to widespread MVFR CIGS over the
area.

Ksea... Lower level clouds will scatter out around 20-22z with
ceilings around 5000 feet for the remainder of the afternoon and
into the evening hours. Ceilings lowering back down to near 1500
feet early Sunday morning. Winds southwesterly 4 to 8 knots.

Marine Weak onshore flow will continue through the
weekend. Surface flow becoming light Monday and Tuesday with a
weakening front on Wednesday. Small craft advisory winds possible
over the coastal waters as the front reaches the area. Models still
in a bit of disagreement on whether this front will hold together or
not though... So will take no action regarding any headlines for
morning forecast package. Felton smr

Hydrology The daily hydrology discussion has ended until the
start of the next rainy season; it will only be updated as needed
until then.

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... None.

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.
