Discussion The pacific northwest continues to transition into a
weather pattern dominated by a low pressure trough. Shortwaves of
energy will move into north-central idaho and western montana
during today, tonight, and Sunday, which will result in valley
rain and mountain snow. Most of the precipitation is expected to
occur in north-central idaho today and tonight as a low pressure
circulation approaches and passes. Other than a few showers, the
main are of rain and mountain snow will not arrive to western
montana until Sunday. Mountain passes along the id mt border are
likely to see snow accumulations during Sunday. Snow levels lower
on Sunday so mixed precipitation will become possible in valley
locations. Rain and snow will linger into Sunday night.

After a brief period of weak high pressure on Monday, ultimately the
warmest day of next week, the weather is expected to yet again be
controlled by the influence of a large, off shore upper level low
pressure system. As the low moves closer to the coast, waves of
energy will help increase the potential for showers on Tuesday and
Wednesday with steadily cooling temperatures. This trend will
continue through the rest of next week as the coastal low appears
to adjoin in synchronization with a much larger trough of low
pressure, originating from near hudson bay. The ensuing deep
trough could even bring a much colder air mass (possibly modified
arctic) into montana, potentially clipping the continental divide
with much colder conditions late next week. Unfortunately all
these things add up to a growing potential for march to both come
in and depart like a lion.

Aviation Model cross sections show cloud cover to increase
today and obscured terrain to become more common. Precipitation
will mostly be confined to north-central idaho, but a few showers
are possible in western montana. A much more organized low
pressure circulation is forecast to move into north-central idaho
tonight, producing persistent valley rain and mountain snow.

Precipitation is expected to weaken as it moves into western
montana on Sunday, although, widespread valley rain and mountain
snow is expected.

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.
