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

Short term tonight through Tuesday Satellite imagery this
evening shows mostly cloudy skies across western washington with
some clearing in spots. Generally dry conditions into Sunday with
just a slight chance for a few showers mostly across the olympic
peninsula as a system slides by north of the area. Temperatures
through the weekend will be a few degrees below normal with highs
in the mid 60s to mid 70s across the area.

An upper level ridge will build into the region on Monday with
weak offshore flow by Monday afternoon. Expect additional sunshine
Monday afternoon after morning stratus clouds. Temperatures will
also be a few degrees warmer in the 70s with offshore flow.

The upper level ridge will start to slide east of the area into
Tuesday ahead of the next system. Although there may be some
stratus clouds Tuesday morning, they will be less widespread given
the generally weak offshore flow Tuesday morning. Dry weather into
Tuesday afternoon with showers along the coast by Tuesday night as
the front approaches. Temperatures on Tuesday will be warmer given
the ridge placement and weak offshore flow with highs in the 70s
to mid 80s in spots across the area. Jd

Long term Wednesday through Saturday The front will move
onshore Wednesday with some showers around as the system slides
through the area. Guidance is in general agreement on the timing
of the system with the GFS being a tad bit wetter, especially
across the northern tier, than the ecmwf. Either way, expect
showers around Wednesday with generally drier weather by Thursday
morning. Flow aloft following the system looks mostly zonal with
guidance suggesting another chance of some pops Friday or
Saturday. Temperatures are expected to be near climo into the 70s
across the area. Jd

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

Stratus lingers this evening though several spots did see a bit of
clearing this afternoon. Ceilings across the area range fromVFR
to MVFR where less clearing occurred. Tonight into Sunday looks
to be a repeat of today with ceilings lowering back down as
stratus becomes overcast overnight. Gradual improvement by mid
afternoon on Sunday.

Ksea...VFR conditions this evening, lowering back down to MVFR
overnight into Sunday morning. Gradual improvement expected again
by late morning to mid afternoon. South to southwest winds 4 to 8
kts. Ceo

Marine Weak onshore flow will continue through the
weekend. No headlines are in place this evening though winds in
the central strait are just below small craft advisory. Flow
becomes lighter on Monday and Tuesday before a weakening front
arrives Wednesday with stronger winds. Ceo

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.

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.
