Discussion Mountain showers continue today, while most of the
valleys are starting to see a mix of Sun and clouds, a few
showers, and breezy winds. The region will dry out during this
evening and winds will begin to diminish.
The next weather system will begin to move into northern idaho and
northwest montana overnight. Mountains will see majority of the
snow with the incoming warn front, but valley spots, especially
from troy to libby and yaak should see snow during Thursday
morning. The rest of north-central idaho and western montana look
to be dry with above normal temperatures.
Above normal temperatures are again expected Friday, with several
areas approaching the mid 40s in western montana and north-central
idaho. The next weather system is still forecast to move through
the northern rockies Friday night and during the first half of
the day on Saturday. The system still seems quite weak, though a
few inches of snow for the mountains and passes, such as lookout
and lolo, is still expected. The valleys, will see a mix of light
rain snow, with any snow accumulations under one half inch.
Sunday looks fairly similar as to Friday's weather pattern with
above normal temperatures for the valleys across the region. The
ridge will help keep any significant weather systems from moving|
into the region, until around mid week next week. During this
time, the models continue to disagree with the overall pattern
for the remainder of the week and next weekend. Some have a strong
polar jetstream pushing onshore and over the region opening the
door for an atmospheric river pattern. While other models push the
jet and moisture north into british columbia. Due to these
differences, nothing was changed in the extended forecast, keeping
the chances for precipitation above climatological values.
Aviation Mountain showers are obscuring terrain as a trough
exits the region. Most valley locations are seeing down-slope,
drying affects, with increased west winds, but a few showers may
be strong enough to briefly reduce visibility and ceilings in
valley locations. Showers and valley winds are expected to
decrease during the evening as a weak ridge builds into the
region. Terrain winds are expected to decrease some overnight but
increase during Thursday. A warm frontal feature will spread
cloud cover into the region tonight and provide snow accumulations
to northern idaho and northwest montana through Thursday morning.

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.
