updated aviation section

Discussion A weak front is washing out over mostly the west
side this morning. Radar returns, with a line of showers moving
inland to the north, but the medford radar on mt ashland not
showing any returns, indicate that the showers are mostly low
topped and wit the onshore 700 mb flow from the west northwest at
30 kt the bulk of the precipitation should fall on the west side
of the coastal ranges and the cascades, with little falling east
of the cascades this morning. Almost all of the precipitation
should be over by late morning as an upper level ridge begins to
build again over the area. The axis of the upper level ridge moves
west Monday with another weak front moving in on northwest zonal
flow pattern Monday night. This weak front has very similar
characteristics of the front current moving through, and will have
similar results. Models continue to indicate a strong ridge
building into the region Wednesday, with 850 mb temperatures
agreeing with MOS guidance, bringing high temperatures in the mid
80s in the west side valleys, and possibly reaching 90 at
medford. With these high temperatures Wednesday southerly flow
also begins to feed moisture into the region. This southerly moist
flow into the region continues into Thursday with models now
showing computed from 850 mb li's near -5 over the cascades and
instability now halfway across the west side on the 00z run.

Aviation 30/12z TAF cycle... This morning, MVFR and areas of ifr
with light rain can be expected along the coast, mainly north of
cape blanco. Meanwhile, a mix ofVFR/MVFR ceilings with higher
terrain obscured will prevail inland from the coast to the cascades
and siskiyous. Elsewhere, ceilings will mostly remainVFR with only
a slight chance of light showers. Conditions will improve toVFR
across the entire area this afternoon and remain that way through
tonight. -spilde

Marine Updated 200 am pdt Sunday, 30 april 2017... Showers
associated with a weak cold front will move onshore this morning. A
thermal trough will develop this afternoon resulting in stronger
north winds and steeper seas through late this evening... Affecting
areas from about 3 to 40 nm from shore, but with the highest winds
and steepest seas south of gold beach. A weak system will disrupt
the thermal trough Monday and Monday night, but it should redevelop
Tuesday into Wednesday. A cold front will move through the coastal
waters on Thursday. Models continue to show the thermal trough
potentially becoming quite strong toward the end of next week.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
