Discussion Gusty to breezy wind noted across much of the
treasure valley this morning. Updated the forecast to reflect
slightly stronger wind. Otherwise, dry conditions continue under
high pressure, with temperatures a few degrees above normal. These
conditions should last into Sunday.

Aviation Vfr under mostly clear skies. Surface winds: northwest
5- 15 kts, except along the i-84 corridor from ontario and to the
south and east at 15-25 kts with gusts to 30 kts. Winds will
taper off by 21 03z. Winds aloft near 10 kft msl: northwest to
north 15-25 kts, becoming west 10-20 kts by 21 06z.

Weekend outlook...VFR. Passing high clouds Friday night through
Saturday morning. Isolated showers over the higher terrain Sunday
afternoon evening.

Prev discussion
Short term... Today through Saturday... The deep trough of low
pressure that moved eastward through the southwest us will work
its way into the southern plains today. High pressure is expected
to move over the pacific northwest in its wake, both in the mid
and upper levels. This will lead to generally clear conditions and
mild temperatures. At the surface a significant pressure gradient
remains in place this morning, and breezy conditions will
continue through the day for valley areas from baker city to twin
falls. Models are in good agreement that a weak trough will
suppress the ridge Saturday, with an increase in clouds, dip in
temperatures, and another round of breezy conditions expected. No
significant impacts are anticipated through the short term period.

Long term... Saturday night through Friday... Westerly flow aloft
Saturday night and Sunday will keep temperatures near normal.

Clouds will increase on Sunday as a weak upper level trough moves
inland. Showers will begin over the higher terrain Sunday
afternoon, spread to the valleys Sunday night, then end from the
west on Monday as the trough exits and an upper level ridge builds
over the region. Temperatures will average around 5 degrees above
normal Wednesday through Friday.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
