unsettled weather through the extended period as an active pattern
continues through most of the upcoming week. A brief upper ridge
will be over the region early Wednesday before another strong
trough moves into the pacific northwest in the afternoon. Precip|
water values soar into the 90-95th percentile... So should see a
potent rain/snow event across the region with snow levels 5500-6500
feet in the north to over 7000 feet along the nv border area. Precip
values over the higher terrain generally 0.75-1.00 inches and above
for wed/thur time period. The upper low dives southward across the
great basin into Friday morning which should bring brisk northwest
winds across all zones. Another brief upper ridge expected by the
weekend bringing a drying trend to the region... But models for next
weekend are showing some disagreement with the timing of troughs
potentially pushing through the upper ridge.
Aviation Generally widespreadVFR conditions expected... Except
pockets of ifr/MVFR and mtn obscuration in low clouds and precip
within the trough moving overhead this afternoon and early evening.
Another round of ifr/MVFR conditions overnight as the main front
pushes through the area. Surface winds southeast to south 10-20 kts
with locally higher gusts ahead of the front... A brief shift to the
southwest as this first band pushes through. Winds shift to west or
northwest after 27/0900z. Winds at 10kft southwest 10-20 kts
shifting to west-northwest after 27/12z.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
