Discussion Precipitation has been slow to arrive, and latest
projections show rain to occur for most of the day in north-
central idaho, but western montana now looks to be dry for most of
today. There may be a few thunderstorms in southwest montana once
the shortwave arrives later on this afternoon, but most of the
precipitation will hold off until this evening. The slower
arrival also means precipitation chances will continue for Sunday
night.

High pressure will provide dry conditions and seasonal
temperatures for Monday; although, expected rain may lead to
patchy fog Monday morning.

A shortwave in southwesterly flow bring a return of showers during
Tuesday and a cold front passage will cause high temperatures to
be many degrees below average.

The rest of next week appears to remain unsettled as the entire
northwestern united states succumbs to the influence of a
deepening trough over the pacific northwest. The models still
point towards Thursday being potentially a much wetter day across
the northern rockies with snow possibly as low as 3000 feet,
basically the elevation of most populated valleys within the
region. However, even during this time frame the upper level jet
stream remains far to our south and thus forecast confidence for
precipitation timing and coverage remains low. There is good
confidence that temperatures will consistently fall about 10 to
15 degrees below normal through at least the end of march
(Sunday).

Aviation The progression of the upcoming low pressure system
continues to slow. Lowered ceilings and persistent valley rain and
mountain snow are expected in north-central idaho, but western
montana is showing mostly dry until this evening. Southwest
montana may see showers develop after 24 2000z, and isolated
thunderstorms are also possible. The rest of western montana will
see increasing showers after 25 0000z. Model guidance are showing
moisture to linger in northwest montana through much of tonight,
so shower and obscured terrain will likely remain, followed by
patchy valley fog for Monday morning.

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.
