Synopsis
Look for on and off rain showers tonight and Thursday mainly in
the idaho panhandle and eastern third of washington while drier
weather returns in the lee of the cascades. A rare dry day is
expected on Friday. The weekend and early next week will feature
average temperatures and scattered light showers, mainly over the
mountains.

Discussion
Evening update: steady rains have ended with the passage of the
cold front. Satellite reveals a deep cold core trof moving
inland. Balloon data on the wa coast indicated 500mb temps already
near -26c and model guidance suggest these will further cool near
-30c by morning. As this cold pool translates inland, expect the
atmosphere to become increasingly unstable promoting widely
scattered showers. We are already seeing signs of this
instability under the incoming cold pool with the development of
showers across much of the north idaho panhandle and northeastern
wa. Breezy SW winds blowing into this higher terrain looks to be
the main source of lift yet satellite and radar also reveal a vort
max drifting through lincoln county at this hour which brought
passing showers to ephrata earlier. Main changes were expand pops
into the basin and decrease shower wording toward isolated or
scattered for the palouse and adjacent locations. /sb

Aviation
06z tafs: an upper-level trof is ushering a cold front through
the region at this hour resulting in showers across the eastern
terminals. These showers will continue to drift east with drier
weather and areas of stratus for spokane-cda. Showers will linger
across lewiston and possibly pullman into the morning hours. Breezy
west to southwest winds will deliverVFR skies to keat and kmwh
and areas of stratus into the rising terrain of ERN wa and N id
impacting kgeg, ksff, kcoe, and kpuw with moderate confidence.

Exact heights due to carry lower confidence. Stratus lifts aft
18z with shallow convective showers 19-00z at most eastern
terminals. /sb

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.
