SYNOPSIS FOR THE SOUTHERN WASHINGTON AND NORTHERN OREGON COAST

The typical mid-summer northerly wind pattern continues into the
middle of next week. High pressure remains anchored well
offshore, while thermally induced low pressure sits over NW
California into extreme SW Oregon through the middle of the week.
This will maintain northerly flow across the waters. However, a
low pressure from the Gulf of Alaska might bring about slight
pattern change by the middle of next week.
