Discussion High pressure will continue warm and dry conditions
over western montana and central idaho through the end of the work
week. Thursday still looks like the warmest day of the week, with
many locations reaching slightly above seasonal average for the
first time in quite a while. Low elevation snow melt will
continue, with ponding of water in poor drainage areas becoming
more common. Luckily, night time temperatures will continue to
cool below freezing for most areas, minimizing flooding concerns.
Increasing cloud cover is expected late in the week as a low
pressure system passes to the south. Otherwise conditions should
remain dry and warm.
Showery and cooler conditions are expected for the weekend as a
trough swings through the region. Forecast models differ in the
evolution of this system, so placement of precipitation and
amounts is still somewhat in question.
Aviation Sunny and warm conditions with light winds will
continue across western montana and central idaho through
Wednesday as high pressure remains in place. Other than some
patchy valley fog Tuesday morning, few impacts to aviation are

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.
