Synopsis A frontal system will move through western washington
today, brining more widespread rain and breezy to locally windy
conditions to western washington. A wet and unsettled pattern
will continue throughout the remainder of the week and into next
week as a series of systems progresses through the region.

Short term today through Friday As of 3 am, radar indicates
that widespread rain has started to push inland across much of the
olympic peninsula and is just making its way into portions of the
sound. Temperatures were in the upper 40s and 50s.

A more organized frontal system will move through western
washington today. This front will bring widespread rain and breezy
to locally windy conditions to the region. A wind advisory
remains in effect for western whatcom, western skagit, the san
juans, and admiralty inlet until 5 pm pdt this afternoon. As this
could be the first event of the season, could see some localized
power outages and tree damage across portions of the northern
interior later today. Temperatures will remain close to normal-
in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Fall has most certainly arrived here in the pacific northwest as
additional systems will push through the region Thursday and
again Friday, bringing additional rounds of breezy conditions and
widespread rain. Temperatures will cool a few degrees each day,
with highs reaching mostly into the mid 50s by Friday. Ample cloud
cover will keep the overnight lows in the upper 40s to low 50s.

Snow levels will stay above the passes on Thursday, but could fall
to near stevens pass levels by Friday.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday An upper level low situated
just offshore british columbia will keep the pattern wet and
unsettled into Saturday. Models continue to hint at a brief break
Saturday night into Sunday morning as the low moves inland,
however the next system will be right on its heels, keeping the
break relatively short lived. Further rounds of breezy conditions
and precipitation will be in store Sunday through Tuesday as
additional systems make their way through the region. Models have
also started to hint at another break in the active weather
pattern by Tuesday night. High temperatures will be in the mid to
upper 50s, while overnight lows will be in the mid 40s to low 50s
throughout the extended. 14

Aviation Cold front moving through the area late afternoon
into the evening hours. Southwesterly flow aloft becoming westerly
behind the front. Southeasterly flow in the lower levels turning
southwesterly behind the front.

Ksea... Ceilings around 7000 feet lowering down to around 4500
feet this morning and to near 3000 feet this afternoon just ahead
of the front. Frontal passage this evening with ceilings remaining
near 3000 feet behind the front. South southeasterly winds 8 to
12 knots with gusts to 20 knots becoming south southwesterly
behind the front. Felton

Marine A strong front will continue to move inland across
the inland waters this morning. A secondary front will then move
across this afternoon and evening. Current headlines remain in place
with gale warnings for the coastal waters, northern inland waters
and eastern strait with small crafts elsewhere. A small craft for
rough bar for grays harbor also remains in place as seas build to
10+ feet. Also, coastal seas will build into the 15 to 20 feet range
by Thursday. Additional weather systems will move across the waters
Thursday into early next week with further headlines needed. Ceo

Hydrology A series of wet systems moving through the area today
into early next week will cause rivers to rise. As such, the
skokomish will likely need to be monitored although given how early
in the season it is... It may take some time for the river to react.

Otherwise... River flooding is unlikely over the next seven days.

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.
