Short term Today through Monday. Upper ridging over the pac nw
gradually flattens to zonal flow by Saturday. A weak upper low off
the southern ca coast is the potential troublemaker as it pushes
monsoon moisture into the northern great basin by Sunday. This
sets the stage for isolated tstms over the southern highlands sun
aftn and eve. This trend continues again on mon... But it still
looks like the morning should be free of tstms. Unfortunately...
there is still uncertainly about the cloud cover. Monsoon moisture
is usually accompanied by some degree of mid and high cloudiness.
Current model runs seem to suggest a higher probability of cloud
cover to the north and south of the eclipse track. Although
promising... Cloud cover is a tough parameter to pin down in the
short term let alone this far out.
Long term... Tuesday through Friday. Isolated tstms spread to the
central mtns by Tue aftn and eve. More monsoon moisture is pushed
into the fcst area late Wed as a large upper trof moves into the
pac nw. This increases chances for tstms across the fcst area thru
fri... Mainly late afternoon and evening. Hedges
Aviation Upper ridging and dry air will result in clear skies|
and moderately gusty southwest winds in the aftn and early eve.
Fire weather High pressure is firmly in place today and will
bring dry and warm conditions through Saturday. Haines index will
remain high today through Sunday. High pressure starts to break
down later Saturday as a trough moves through. Expect strong wind
gusts of 25 to 30 mph across the central mountains and 20 to 25
mph across the eastern magic valley and snake river plain. A fire
weather watch is in effect from Saturday at noon until 9 pm mdt
for east idaho fire weather zones 475 and 476. Though most of
southeast idaho will have low relative humidity below 15 percent,
zone 422, where there will be strong winds, looks to have relative
humidity in the 15 to 20 percent range. Winds in all other zones,
though elevated, are currently below critical values. Sunday
expect southwest flow allowing moisture to creep into the area.
Expect mostly mountain afternoon isolated showers and
thunderstorms Sunday and to a slightly higher degree Monday as
well. The shower and thunderstorm threat increases Tuesday and
Pih watches warnings advisories
Fire weather watch from Saturday afternoon through Saturday
evening for idz475-476.

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.
