Discussion There is enough pre-frontal moisture to support
scattered clouds over southeast oregon this evening. Cloud
development will shift south and east overnight ahead of the
front, but conditions remain too dry for precipitation. Little
change in timing of frontal passage overnight, which is through
baker and burns by 09z, crossing boise around 12z and to the
western magic valley by 18z. While areas could see a wind shift
with the passage winds won't ramp up until later Wednesday
morning into the afternoon. Current forecast is on track for
tonight so no update.

Aviation Vfr with mostly clear skies. Variable 10 kts or less
through 12z then northwesterly 10-25 kts with higher winds in the
magic valley of 20-25 kts and gusts around 30-38 kts. Winds aloft to
10k feet msl, westerly 15-40 kts.

Prev discussion
Short term... Tonight through Thursday... An upper low moving
moving eastward across british columbia today, is beginning to
weaken the upper ridge that has been dominating the past few days.

This low is expected to broaden as it moves and send a dry cold
front from NW to SE through the area tomorrow. This will lower
high temperatures by 10 or more degrees from today. A small amount
of moisture in northern nevada may be enough for a few
thunderstorms across the id nv border tomorrow afternoon. As the
trough continues to broaden, the area will remain in the northerly
flow with the closed low well to the east. A shortwave in this
flow reaches the area on Thursday and will likely be enough to get
some showers and thunderstorms going in the idaho central
mountains on Thursday afternoon, and drop high temperatures a few
more degrees.

Long term... Thursday night through Tuesday... An upper trough will
extend from the northern intermountain region into SW idaho for a
chance of showers and afternoon thunderstorms on Friday, mainly over
the higher terrain. Meanwhile, a high-amplitude upper ridge off the
west coast will shift into SE oregon on Friday and SW idaho on
Saturday. A drier air mass and warmer temperatures will accompany
the incoming ridge. Near-normal temperatures on Friday will trend to
10 degrees above normal by Monday as the ridge axis reaches our
area. Residual moisture combined with warmer daytime temperatures
will result in a slight chance of afternoon-evening showers and
thunderstorms in the baker county mountains and central idaho
mountains Sunday through Tuesday.

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.
