What's New / NOTES
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Discussion It's been yet another gorgeous day across the
northern rockies with temperatures running 5 to 10 degrees warmer
than yesterday. And while it's going to be a gorgeous night,
changes are on the horizon.

For the past several days weather models have consistently honed
in on an area of monsoonal moisture that was residing over
northern mexico and forecast to drift northwest around the high
pressure ridge. Over the past 24 hours this moisture has been
slowly drifting northward over nevada, california and even off the
coast of california. All models bring this moisture into idaho
and montana in sync with a rather robust mid-level disturbance
associated with a weak upper level low pressure system presently
near 34n 133w. All these things considered we are expecting
strong and potentially severe thunderstorms to develop late Monday
afternoon with convection continuing overnight.

The storm prediction center has recently expanded the area
highlighted as marginal risk for severe thunderstorms to now
include all of central idaho and much of western montana. Gusty
outflow winds are likely to be the greatest severe threat during
the late afternoon given that the atmosphere will initially remain
quite dry and the combination of maximum heating, producing high
temperatures well into the upper 80s and 90s (a few locations in
central idaho could even tip the century mark), with low dew
points will result in dew point depressions greater than 50
degrees. This is typically a key characteristic which indicates an
atmosphere supportive of strong outflow wind gusts from mountain
thunderstorms. Right now gusts to near 50 mph are possible. But a
few stronger storms could support stronger winds that may become
severe (gusting 57 mph or greater).

The atmosphere will continue to support strong thunderstorms well
into Monday evening as the mid level disturbance propagates very
slowly through the region. Patterns such as these that lack
appreciable upper level flow tend to linger and remain supportive
of overnight (nocturnal) thunderstorm activity that is likely to
still be active into Tuesday morning. But overnight the atmosphere
will significantly moisten, thus transitioning the key threats
from gusty winds to heavy rain and occasional small hail.

Thereafter forecast models maintain NW flow across the northern
rockies, a pattern supportive of normal temperatures with
periodic chances for afternoon showers and or thunderstorms. A
brief warm up still appears possible late in the week or early
next weekend before the longer term models start leaning towards
possibly cooler weather and showers for the independence day
holiday.

Aviation
Mostly clear conditions and light winds are expected under warm
high pressure through 26 1800z. Clouds begin to increase
thereafter.

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.
