Synopsis A series of weather systems will slide through western
washington into the first part of next week. A break in the wet
and unsettled weather is possible in the middle of next week.

Short term today through Saturday Radar as of 8am this
morning shows another round of showers sliding through the olympic
peninsula. These showers will slide east through the morning into
the early afternoon. A brief break in shower activity is possible
during the afternoon but another band will again slide through
into this evening. There will be enough cooling aloft with this
secondary trough for the risk of at least a few isolated
thunderstorms, generally along the coast and olympics, so have
added to the forecast. Winds with both of these bands of
precipitation will be less than Wednesday's winds, but southerlies
will still be breezy as the showers move through. A convergence
zone may develop this evening into early tonight over snohomish
county behind the front. Temperatures today will generally be in
the 50s.

Showers expected Friday morning with another more organized band
of precipitation for Friday afternoon. Snow levels will drop to
around 4500 feet on Friday with the heaviest precipitation Friday
night into Saturday across the south cascades. Winter storm watch
is in effect for the cascades of pierce and lewis counties Friday
afternoon through Saturday, with snow possible at chinook, white,
and cayuse passes, as well as paradise. Temperatures on Friday in
the low to mid 50s.

The band will stall Friday night over western washington with the
heaviest precipitation over the southern tier of the cwa,
especially over the southern cascades. Rain to showers elsewhere
across the area Friday night into Saturday. Will evaluate the
addition of thunder on Saturday this afternoon as an upper level
trough gradually amplifies as it moves through western washington.

Temperatures on Saturday afternoon will generally be in the mid
50s. Jd

Long term Sunday through Wednesday Extended models in good
agreement with another front arriving on Sunday followed by
another one for Monday that could hang up over the area into
Tuesday. Models also in good agreement with some ridge building
Wednesday for a little break in the wet weather. Highs in the 50s
and lows mostly in the 40s through the period. Felton

Aviation A couple of weather disturbances will cross the area
today followed by a relative break tonight. The flow aloft will be
westerly. The air mass remains moist and will become slightly
unstable this afternoon before stabilizing again tonight.

Cigs are a mixed bag with generallyVFR conditions for the majority
of the area while MVFR conditions are set up over the north interior
and the san juan islands and lastly ifr conditions are being
reported along the coast. As rain activity increases over w
wa... CIGS will lower with the majority of sites falling to low-end
vfr to MVFR conditions... With isolated ifr conditions possible under
heavier rainfall.

Ksea...VFR conditions at present... Will see CIGS lower by 18z as
rain returns to generally low-endVFR conditions... Although MVFR
conditions will be possible under heavier rainfall. Southerly wind 6-
10 knots will increase to 10-15 knots this afternoon and become a
bit gusty. Schneider smr

Marine Another weather system will move through the waters
today, continuing small craft advisory conditions for the coastal
waters, eastern strait and northern inland waters. In addition, sca
conditions expected for remainder of the strait as quick burst of
westerlies likely behind front this evening. Once system exits,
winds will ease slightly but seas will remain high (15 to 22 feet)
for the coastal waters. SCA for hazardous seas in place for this
evening into Friday with rough bar for grays harbor bar. All that
being said... Will leave inherited headlines in place as they cover
the above circumstances well. Additional weather systems will move
across the waters Friday into next week with additional headlines
likely to be needed. Ceo smr

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.

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... Winter storm watch from Friday afternoon through Saturday
afternoon for cascades of pierce and lewis counties.

High surf advisory until 11 pm pdt this evening for central
coast-north coast.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
