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.

Synopsis
A threat for rain and lightning is expected to spread into
eastern washington and north idaho late tonight into Thursday.

Slow moving cells will have the potential to produce locally heavy
rainfall. Breezy weather is expected Friday and Saturday with the
chance for mountain showers. The beginning of next week currently
looks dry but breezy.

Discussion
Recent thunderstorms have died out with some isolated showers
lingering northern mountains. The afternoon and evening showers
mainly dumped heavy rain.

Heavy rain with thunderstorms may cause local flooding issues
Thursday...

the main change this evening is to heighten awareness of
potential for heavy rain with thunderstorms with an areal flood
watch. Latest models are showing a very active period starting
later tonight along the wa or border where showers will initially
be elevated and light in rainfall. At this point areas around
lewiston clarkston and the camas prairie may not get the full
effect of heavy showers with embedded thunderstorms however at
least a half an inch or more is not out of the question just not
all at once and over a longer period of time. Farther north
toward late Thursday afternoon a moist and unstable air mass will
spark a round of afternoon showers across northeast wa and the id
panhandle. With the anticipation of embedded thunderstorms dumping
potentially over an inch in a short time it could cause local
flooding issues. Just be aware if thunderstorms are approaching
that driving conditions may change rapidly and outdoor activities
should be delayed until the storms move through.

Thursday evening showers will die out for a quieter summer night.

Aviation
00z tafs: thunderstorms this evening will avoid most TAF sites
withVFR conditions through the overnight hours. However 11 miles
south of keat on mission ridge there will be thunderstorms on the
ridge which could bring wind gusts to 15 mph out of the southwest
until 02z which is not typical for keat. General convection will
diminish after sunset. Moisture moving out of the south will
begin to impact klws after 12z moving north toward kpuw,kgeg,ksff
and kcoe through the remaining TAF period. Showers with embedded
thunderstorms in this area can be expected with MVFR conditions
forecast at kpuw. Confidence is low bringing vis and CIGS down for
kgeg, kcoe and ksff but the weather will certainly be more
unsettled. Tc

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.

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.
