What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

area forecast discussion

1014 pm pdt Wed jul 18 2018

Synopsis
Temperatures will cool slightly each day going into the week with
readings expected to be near normal by Saturday. Conditions will
remain dry with locally breezy winds expected near the cascades
through Friday then northern mountain valleys over the weekend.

The dry weather looks to persist into next week with the potential
for another strong warming trend.

Discussion
Made a quick update to add smoke and haze to the forecast. Visible
satellite shows more smoke than clouds across the region. The main
plumes are to the northwest of oroville wa in bc, although smoke
is spreading across eastern okanogan county. Smoke models pick up
on this feature and spread it across ferry, stevens and pend
oreille counties overnight into Thursday morning. Likewise, the
local fire in spokane and bonners ferry will keep skies hazy
overnight into the morning hours. More plumes near the dalles or
is creating another area of smoke across southern or, but should
spread across the blue mountains and camas prairie. Rfox.

Aviation
00z tafs:VFR conditions will continue with high clouds overnight
into Thursday and a few cumulus over the mountains in the
afternoon. There is still a small chance of hz or fu near from a
nearby fire at ksff, although confidence is low. Brisk northwest
winds to 15kt will continue at keat, while lighter winds will be
found elsewhere. Gusty winds will return between 18z and 02z
in most locations. Rfox

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.

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.
