Short term Tonight through Monday afternoon. A low pressure
disturbance is currently advancing across eastern oregon and
washington with areas of snow yet to reach idaho, but cloud cover is
advancing quickly into the central mountains. The associated surface
cold front should reach stanley about 10 pm mst this evening and
cross into the arco desert about 2 am Saturday morning, then east
into the caribou highlands by 5-6 am. A surface convergence boundary
will set up behind the front roughly on a dubois to arco line and
advance through idaho falls and pocatello about the middle of the
afternoon and will serve as a focus for snow during the day. Snow
accumulation of 1 to 2 inches is expected in the snake plain and up
to 3 inches on the east bench areas; 2 to 4 inches in the upper
snake highlands with locally higher amounts around macks inn and
pine creek pass, and mostly 2 to 4 inches further south to soda
springs and bear lake area. Limited accumulations of 1 to 3 inches
is expected in the central mountains. Snow tappers off in the snake
plain late afternoon and the eastern highlands Saturday morning.

Snow ends until west-northwest winds aloft bring a chance of snow to
the mountains from midnight Sunday through the day Monday, but with
accumulation only 1 to 3 inches in the mountains and generally a
dusting in the lower valleys. Rs

Long term Long term... Monday night through Friday. Lingering
snow showers are forecast over the eastern portion of idaho
Monday evening with clearing conditions forecast going into
Tuesday. A slightly warmer day is forecast for Tuesday, with
temperatures above freezing for several locations. Our next
weather system arrives on Wednesday. This one is looking to be
perhaps a substantial one in snow amounts and impacts regarding
blowing snow and snow accumulation. Long term model solutions are
still agreeing with each now in timing of the system being
Wednesday morning across the central and quickly spreading
southeastward during the day. Fairly decent amounts of moisture
are currently noted across the mountains, both in the central
mountains and in the southern highland areas, then spreading
eastwards later in the day. Depending on how the trough potential
closed low tracks, there could be decent amounts of moisture in
the snake river plain as well. We will be watching the track of
this system very closely in coming days as this is the most
impactful weather system in our forecast period. The trough low is
expected to get pushed southward by very cold air by Thursday,
bringing our area temperatures in the single digits and teens.

Perhaps some areas will see below 0, in fact it is likely. Np rs

Aviation The fog has decidedly cleared many areas this afternoon;
and it is a challenge deciding whether or not the fog mist will
return this evening overnight. The reason for this low confidence is
the approach of a weather system this evening, which will bring
moisture in the form of snow showers instead of fog mist. The
question is timing. Therefore, have left a forecast of lowered
ceilings in the TAF forecast for ida with hints that it may return
at pih, dij and byi. Expect snow showers to reduce visibility and
ceilings by early morning; however. Np rs

Air stagnation The disturbance on Saturday will help improve air
circulation in the lower valleys, disrupting the inversion
conditions until later in the week. Rs

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.
