will start the day with an upper ridge over the west coast with a
trough along the east coast. An upper trough shear axis will drop
down out of canada and sink down to the area Monday. This will be
followed by a cut off low coming ashore the west coast Tuesday that
opens up into a trough and moves quickly east reaching the area late
Tuesday early Wednesday. High pressure returns after that.
Temperatures since the recent cold spell have climbed steadily each
day. This morning cold... Clear... And dry with dewpts in the 20s
with some teens sw. Highs today will warm quickly reaching the mid
to upper 60s this afternoon. Another cool morning with lows mainly|
in the 30s Saturday before a cold front moves through midday. This
front expected early enough to affect afternoon highs Saturday
across the north. Of course different models not in agreement as to
timing but leaning toward the faster solution... Will start trending
temps down. Sunday should only see highs in the 40s and 50s. Highs
in the 60s expected to return by Tuesday.
Not much in the way of rain chances next few days... Could see some
showers SE on Sunday. Better rain chances look to be Tuesday
night Wednesday with the next upper trough.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
