Synopsis A low pressure system will bring strong and gusty
winds each afternoon through the weekend. A few showers or
thunderstorms may proceed the system, but activity should remain
very isolated. Cooler temperatures will arrive Friday, with readings
holding below average through at least the middle of next week.

Discussion Still looking for gusty winds today as a trough digs
into the region from the northwest. Temperatures similar to
yesterday before height falls see a few degrees of cooling
tomorrow and then some cool air advection associated with the
trough drops temperatures to several degrees below average for
late september over the weekend. Our current forecast has all the
right moves. No updates this morning. Please see the previous
discussion below for additional details.

Aviation Valid thru 22 18z.

Skc through most of period. The exception will be few-sct clouds
above 8k ft agl 21 19z to 22 03z. Sfc wind increasing this
afternoon to swly 15-20 kts with gusts to 30 kts. Wind diminishing
to less than 10 kts after 22 03z. Aviation discussion not updated
for TAF amendments.

Fire weather A deepening upper trough over the western united
states will result in gusty southwest winds, especially during the
afternoon and early evening hours through Saturday. The strongest
winds are expected on today and Friday, with a cooling trend Friday
through Sunday. Isolated storms will be possible over the mountains
in the eastern portion of the state before drying out this weekend.

Prev discussion The main story will be the wind and cooler
weather as the tail end of a low pressure system affects the
region. Models have been persistent in deepening a system over the
intermountain west today through the weekend. Moisture needed for
rain chances will be very limited, so the noticeable changes will
be strong winds followed by cooler temperatures. The wind was
forecast to be the strongest on Friday with high temperatures
dropping 8 to 10 degrees from this afternoon to Saturday. Models
showed a secondary system developing over the southwest united
states by the middle of next week. This feature will help maintain
high temperatures near or slightly below normal through much of
the week.

Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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.
