An upper ridge will build over the area this week for a warming trend. The ridge will shift inland early next week with an upper trough moving in from the west and temperatures cooling to near normal.
Short Term - Tonight Through Friday
An upper ridge over the Intermountain West will build slightly westward Wednesday through Friday. This will turn the flow aloft for Western Washington more southerly and weaken low level onshore flow slightly. The result will be less morning low clouds and a gradual warming trend. Highs will be well into the 80s for the interior by Thursday with a few lower 90s possible. Friday should be a couple degrees warmer than Thursday and looks to be the hottest day of the week. The hottest locations should be over the Southwest Interior and in some of the valleys near the Cascades. The heat risk looks to peak in the moderate category on Friday with possible impacts for heat sensitive groups. The southerly flow aloft could also bring some elevated smoke to the area later in the week but most of this is expected to stay to the east and degraded air quality is not expected in Western Washington for now. Schneider
Long Term - Saturday Through Tuesday
Upper heigheights will gradually lower and onshore flow will ramp up as an upper ridge over the Intermountain West shifts east and an upper trough over the Northeast Pacific moves closer to Western Washington. Low level onshore flow will also gradually increase over the period for a return to more night and morning clouds. Ensembles show some moisture coming up from the south Saturday night and Sunday for a slight chance of showers. The best chances for this look to be over the Cascades but there could certainly be a stray shower father west. Schneider
North winds through the next few days across most of the area. Small Craft Advisory winds over the next few evenings and overnigheights through the central and eastern portions of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. SCA (Small Craft Advisory) winds possibly for the interior coastal waters Wednesday evening and Thursday evening with increasing north winds. Seas of 2 to 3 feet through Wednesday with mainly light westerly swells into Wednesday night. JD
