The UWash model is completely dry for the next 7 days.  There is not a hint of rain.

This is due to the jetstream flowing up and around a high that is anchored along the coast.

Here is the jetstream today:

And here it is next Monday.

You can see that the high has shifted slightly to the East by Monday which may let a few clouds and a slight chance of precipitation, but also notice there is a bit of a break in the jet with a new wave appraoching from the west as well as a new area of high pressure to the south. All a recipe for a continuation of the same pattern of cool and dry, and foggy weather.

The fog and inversion in the morning will be persistent but hopefully it breaks in the afternoons.

That is all for now!
