Discussion Clear through Tuesday morning as a weak upper ridge
passes through the interior northwest. Later Tuesday an upper low
off southern california will circulate moisture northward into
harney and malheur counties leading to a slight chance of
thunderstorms. Wednesday looks more threatening for thunderstorms
as stronger southwest flow aloft pulls more moisture in and over a
larger part of our cwa. Current forecast looks good. No updates.
Aviation Vfr. Increasing mid-high level clouds through the day
Tuesday along the nevada border and north across SE oregon for a
slight chance of afternoon evening thunderstorms. Smoke layers
mainly east of kmyl. Surface winds: variable 10 kts or less. Winds
aloft near 10 kft msl: southwest to northwest 5-15 kts.
Short term... Tonight through Wednesday... Dry conditions expected
through Tuesday morning, with light wind and warming temperatures.
An area of low pressure off the coast of california will push
moisture across nevada and into southern or id Tuesday. This will
bring unsettled conditions with the threat of showers and
thunderstorms by Tuesday afternoon. Meanwhile, the ridge axis will
slide to the east, allowing additional pacific moisture and
instability to impact the area. This will leave slightly cooler, and|
generally unsettled conditions across the area through Wednesday
afternoon with continued showers and thunderstorms. Models are in
fair agreement that the most shower coverage is anticipated to occur
Long term... Wednesday night through Monday... A cold front will cross
eastern oregon and southwest idaho Wednesday night as an upper level
trough from the gulf of alaska moves inland over british columbia.
The front will trigger thunderstorms in the moist and unstable
monsoon air over our area. Instability will decrease following the
front, but surface heating on Thursday is expected to set off
isolated afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Only a slight chance
of measurable rain is expected at lower elevation locations. As the
trough moves east of the rockies Thursday night, subsidence and
cooler drier air will hinder thunderstorm development across our
area, and Friday is expected to be mostly sunny. The upper level
ridge will rebuild over the western u.S. Over the weekend, bringing
a warming trend and mostly clear skies Saturday through Monday.

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.
