Synopsis
Issued at 145 am edt Sun sep 23 2018
high pressure will provide dry and mostly sunny conditions today.

Temperatures will moderate into the lower to middle 70s for high
temperatures this afternoon. This high pressure will shift to the
east Monday allowing increased moisture to be drawn northward.

Rain showers will become likely for much of the Monday afternoon
through Tuesday night period. Isolated thunderstorms are also
possible.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 328 am edt Sun sep 23 2018
gradual height rises and stable dry deep column within lingering low
level ridge axis will afford a mainly clear sky and nice temp
recovery into the low-mid 70s by mid afternoon. Dry then again into
tonight with clouds on the increase late.

Long term (Monday through Saturday)
issued at 328 am edt Sun sep 23 2018
mid level trough now into the pacific northwest will advance east
into the northern plains canadian prairies by late Monday Monday
night. Downstream southwest flow on the leading edge of associated
height falls will help lift a weak disturbance low level
trough deeper moisture over the mid ms valley northeast into the
area Monday into Monday night. The initial theta-e surge later
Monday morning and afternoon focuses more into southern and eastern
portions with higher pops near a weak inverted trough. Decent rain
shower chances then continue into Monday night in these same areas
given ongoing moist isentropic ascent and weak convergence within an
increasing llj.

Mild and somewhat humid conditions are then expected in southerly
flow on Tuesday. Corridor of deeper moisture with the above
mentioned pre-frontal feature does tend to edge further east during
the day resulting in lower shower iso thunder chances, especially
along northwest of us 24. Cannot completely rule out an isolated
strong storm mid aftn-early eve Tuesday (especially southeast) given
moist low levels and ample flow... Though lacking lapse rates forcing
and cloud cover likely limits any larger scale severe threat. The
main cold frontal passage then into later Tuesday night early
Wednesday brings additional shower chances, followed by
cooler mainly dry conditions for the remainder of the week.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Monday afternoon)
issued at 115 pm edt Sun sep 23 2018
high pressure will maintain ideal aviation conditions through the
evening. This high will exit by Monday morning though and return
flow will advect better low level moisture into the area. Held
ceilings just above fuel alternate for now but lower conditions
possible (especially at kfwa) based on concensus of latest
guidance.

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.
