Synopsis
High pressure through the rest of the week will bring seasonably
cool temperatures and areas of fog and low clouds with a few snow
showers to the idaho panhandle. Cooler canadian air this weekend
will bring a cooling trend for the beginning of next week.

Discussion
Today through Friday night: high pressure has quickly built over
the area and will be the dominant weather feature for the next
week. At this point, the ridge axis of the high pressure is off
shore, which creates northerly flow aloft over us. Pacific
disturbances will weaken significantly as they move through this
ridge. What survives the trip through the ridge will bring the
threat of snow showers to mainly the panhandle.

Fog and low clouds during the night and morning hours will become
more widespread, with some afternoon clearing possible. For today,
these should be confined to the eastern basin, palouse, and
northeast valleys. Central wa should see a good amount of sunshine
today. After extensive mid high clouds tonight, Friday should have
widespread low clouds and fog in most valley locations. Rj
Saturday to Wednesday: the inland NW weather will be
influenced by a ridge of high pressure along the west coast and
the accompanying northwest flow. This will largely bring dry
conditions, with some areas of low clouds and fog in the late
night morning hours. A disturbance dropping along the eastern side
of the ridge will provide some threat of snow around Sunday into
Sunday night, largely around the mountain zones. Overall at this
time any precipitation with that feature looks light, if anything
falls at all. Toward the middle of next week models start to
diverge over the precipitation potential. A ridge remains near the
coast, but some model runs show disturbances strong enough to
bring a threat of snow back to the region and other runs keeping
the area completely dry. The forecast indicates some threat but
the risk is tempered toward a drier solution. Temperatures are
projected to be near seasonal norms through Sunday, though precise
numbers will be influenced by how persistent low clouds are,
before a cooling trend behind the incoming front. Cote'

Aviation
12z: fog and low clouds have been forming at some of the taf
sites overnight, with flight conditions varying every hour. I
still expect fog to build into kgeg. Klws, kpuw, and kmwh should
have enough clouds to keep fog from forming. Those locations with
fog and stratus this morning should gradually burn off by mid day.

Mid high clouds will move through the area tonight, which could
inhibit fog formation. But still expect most TAF sites to have
MVFR or ifr conditions late tonight. Rj

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.
