Near term until 6 am this morning
Quick update early this morning to pops and hourly
temperatures... But overall the ongoing forecast is on track.
Based of latest observations and hi-res progs... Further snow
accumulation for the ridges looks minimal so have cancelled
remaining advisories. Previous discussion follows..
Snow should continue to taper off from w-e as a cold front
exits, upper divergence shifts e, and surface ridging begins to
build in. Some additional snow showers could persist in the
higher terrain overnight. A lowering temperature inversion and
decreasing moisture should end this by morning. Maintained

Pop timing was accordingly shifted later by a few hours.

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.
