dry conditions prevail across the region this afternoon. A weak
shortwave is moving north to south across eastern most zones this
evening, however, bringing precip potential across that area late
this evening and overnight. Eastern zones have some potential for
patchy fog again early Tuesday morning, with enhanced potential
anywhere that does receive precipitation.
Otherwise, dry conditions will prevail through short term period,
as a strong upper level ridge moves eastward toward the region
from the pacific coast. Although snow cover continues to decrease,
it should still keep temps a little cooler for Tuesday. That
said, temps should be around seasonal average Tuesday for the
first time since early february, as the ridge approaches the

forecast period, so expect to see dry conditions prevail the
latter portions of the work week.
There is some indication that conditions become a bit more
unsettled by Friday night, and remains unsettled through the|
weekend and potentially into Monday. An upper level low is progged
to lift northeastward from four corners region toward southeast
montana. Models do not agree well on how much this system will
impact the region, but have continued with inherited pops at this
time. Temperatures do appear to be slightly cooler, with passage
of the upper low, bringing temps back to around seasonal average.

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
