Synopsis A warm front will move over the northern portion of
the area on Saturday. A trailing cold front will drop down through
western washington on Sunday. Another system will arrive Monday
before an upper ridge builds over the area in the middle of next
week.

Short term tonight through Monday Showers will mostly end
this evening in the wake of the front that moved through earlier
today. The exception will be over the mountains and in a puget
sound convergence zone where showers will linger into the early
morning hours Saturday.

A warm front will set up just north of the area on Saturday. The
bulk of the precipitation will be aimed at vancouver island but
the far north part of the area will see some rain with decreasing
chances as one GOES south.

This frontal system will sag southeast across the area on Sunday
for a period of rain all areas. It will also become locally windy
Saturday night and Sunday, especially over the north interior and
at the coast but impacts are expected to be minimal.

Rain will taper Sunday afternoon and mostly end Sunday night as
the front weakens and shifts inland. Another weather system will
reach the area on Monday for an increasing chance of rain with
rain likely Monday night. Snow levels will fall to the higher
passes late Monday night but by then the precipitation will be
tapering. Schneider

Long term Tuesday through Friday Rain showers will taper on
Tuesday as an upper trough shifts inland. Dry weather is expected
for the remainder of the week with an upper ridge over the area.

With less clouds, there should be some night and morning fog each
day. Daytime highs should be seasonable and nights will be a bit
chilly. Schneider

Aviation Showers will become more scattered this evening in
post-frontal onshore flow. The flow aloft is westerly. A puget
sound convergence zone will develop near the king snohomish line.

Ceilings are mostlyVFR although MVFR conditions are possible with
showers, especially within the convergence zone. Showers will
diminish after midnight tonight as the flow turns offshore. The
next incoming system will spread rain mainly to the north coast
and north cascades on Saturday. 33
ksea... Showers with a convergence zone likely remaining north of
the terminal this afternoon evening. S SW wind 10-20 kt easing
this evening. MVFR conditions likely overnight into Saturday
morning. 33

Marine Onshore flow will ease tonight. Seas will remain within
a 10 to 12 feet range. A stronger system will arrive on Saturday
and bring another round of small craft advisory winds to the
waters. This system will slowly weaken as it shifts through the
region on Sunday. A third system will arrive early next week. 33

Hydrology A fairly wet warm frontal system will be just north
of the area Saturday and Saturday night. This system will sag
south through the area on Sunday, bringing a period of heavy rain
to the mountains. River flooding is not forecast at this point
but if precipitation is a little heavier than expected there could
be some flooding concerns, especially for rivers flowing off the
north cascades.

Another relatively wet system will cross the area later Monday
and Monday night but the progressive nature of this system means
flooding is unlikely. Mainly dry weather is expected for the rest
of next week. Schneider

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.
