A quick moving cold front will bring scattered showers tonight and
early Saturday and windy conditions Saturday afternoon. The new
work week is expected to start dry and mild and probably remain
dry with a strong warming trend through the week.
Evening update: a mid level front will sweep across the region
tonight bringing mainly passing mid level clouds with a chance of
showers limited to mainly the northern mountains with showers
likely along the cascade crest late tonight as moist upslope flow
reaches the area behind the surface cold front. The 00z NAM has
trended drier over northern wa with the higher resolution models
also drier except near the cascade crest. Given current
temperature dew point spreads of 20-25f for many locations and the
fast movement of the front the threat of showers will be limited
to mainly the mountains. Pop's were adjusted for the rest of
tonight... Trended downward for many locations.
Snow levels lower to near 3500 feet Saturday morning in the
cascades so brief accumulations are possible over stevens pass.
00z tafs: a quick hitting cold front will swing through tonight.
Cloud cover will thicken tonight with showers mainly over the
mountains of northern washington into the idaho panhandle. Dry
air in the boundary layer will keep CIGS above 5 kft agl withVFR
conditions prevailing through 00z Sunday. Winds will become gusty
Saturday morning to between 25-35 kts possible and will continue
into the afternoon. Jw

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.

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.
