Synopsis A weak upper level ridge will build over the region
today and push eastward by this evening. A frontal system will
then approach western washington and move inland on Tuesday. Wet
and unsettled weather will then continue through the week and into
the weekend as a series of systems move through.

Short term today through Wednesday Recent satellite imagery
indicates that a few areas of patchy fog have started to develop
across portions of the southwest interior this morning. Additional
areas of fog development will remain possible during the early
morning hours as temperature dewpoint spreads remain favorable
across portions of the sound. Overnight lows will be in the low
to mid 40s across the region.

Dry conditions will then persist today as an upper level ridge
progresses eastward across western washington. Morning clouds will
give way to afternoon Sun and afternoon highs will warm into the
upper 50s to lower 60s. Wetter weather will return Tuesday as a
system to the north moves into british columbia and pushes a cold
front through western washington.

Models continue to hint that Wednesday will bring breezy and wet
conditions to portions of the sound, with the strongest winds
possible across areas of the northern interior and along the
coast. Temperatures will generally be in the mid 50s to lower 60s,
while overnight lows will remain a little warmer and mostly in
the 40s thanks to lingering cloud cover.

Long term Thursday through Sunday Overall, the pattern will
remain wet and unsettled throughout the extended time frame, as
guidance continues to hint at a series of systems impacting the
region. Overall high temperatures will trend a couple of degrees
cooler- with afternoon highs mostly in the low 50s. Overnight lows
will primarily be in the mid to upper 40s. 14

Aviation An upper ridge will cross the area today and tonight
with westerly flow aloft. At the surface, light offshore flow will
develop today and then strengthen tonight. The air mass is stable
with low level moisture. Areas of low clouds and fog will
increase early this morning then burn off late this morning and
this afternoon.

Ksea... Low clouds should develop in the next couple of hours then
burn off around midday. There will be some mid and high clouds
after that. Light wind will become northerly 3-6 knots this
afternoon. Schneider

Marine Weak surface ridging will shift east of the
cascades later today as the first of a series of vigorous
frontal systems approaches the offshore waters. The first front
will move across the waters early Wednesday with additional
fronts every 24 to 36 hours into the weekend. This will produce
periods of small craft advisory winds with possible gales at
times... Especially coastal waters and northern inland waters. The
active weather pattern will also generate some large surf... With
seas of 15 to 20 feet possible over the coastal waters by Thursday.

27

Hydrology A series of wet systems moving through the area
Tuesday night into the weekend will cause rivers to rise, but
flooding is unlikely over the next seven days.

Sew watches warnings advisories
Wa... None.

Pz... None.

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.
