Discussion The northern rockies will be under northerly flow
throughout the day which will keep temperatures fairly cool for
this time of year. Readings appear to be a few degrees warmer then
yesterday, but should still remain around 5 degrees below normal.

The winds will not be much of an issue today, but a slight
increase in shower activity does exist.

Tonight a weak cut off low develops over southwest idaho eastern
oregon. This feature will keep a few showers lingering across the
southern part of the forecast area, especially in idaho county.

Moisture will be the limiting factor for this feature, so any
precipitation is anticipated to be fairly light.

The feature gets absorbed into the flow by Friday keeping the
region in northerly flow. Once again temperatures warm slightly to
near normal readings with the possibility of afternoon showers and
thunderstorms.

High pressure remains on track to slowly build into the region
during Saturday, Sunday and Monday. High temperatures these days
are forecast to be around 5-10 degrees above average. A few
showers may develop with best chances being along the continental
divide during the afternoons. The warming trend under high
pressure has model consistency to prevail through around Wednesday
of next week. The story for each of the days Saturday onward is
for temperatures to be slightly warmer than the last with a few
showers during the afternoons. The main impact during the next
week will be increased snowmelt leading to rising rivers. Most of
the rivers throughout the region are forecast to rise and
maintain below flood stage, but the salmon river in lemhi county
and the flathead river between columbia falls and flathead lake
are the two rivers that may rise to very close to flood stage.

The next low pressure system looks to begin to influence the
region as early as next Thursday.

Aviation A weak feature will continue to move through the
northern rockies during the early morning hours which is creating
a few showers. These showers have already passed near kmso and
kgpi, but are just starting to impact kbtm. The biggest issue will
be the lowering over ceilings near the terminal. The precipitation
should diminish some by mid morning, then redevelop this afternoon
as the atmosphere destabilizes. The convection this
afternoon evening does not appear to be intense, but if a shower
does go over a terminal anticipated MVFR conditions for a period
of time.

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.
