Discussion No big changes to the forecast update for this
week. Mid to high level moisture is expected to move over the
region today into Tuesday from british columbia. This will
translate to possible afternoon and evening mountain showers,
clouds and continued cooler than normal temperatures. Model
guidance appears a little overdone for precipitation chances with
this pattern, so the chance for precipitation especially in the
valleys is low.
Wednesday through Friday look to be spectacular days as the warm
upper level ridge becomes more entrenched over us. This will
equate to plenty of sunshine, temperatures warming into the 60s
and 70s most places with the exception for a few central idaho
valley locations possibly cracking 80. One trend in the weather
models has been to speed up the pacific system later Friday into
Saturday. This could mean that high clouds could move over central
idaho Friday a little faster diffusing the sunshine a little bit.|
The aforementioned frontal system and associated trough
occurrence has been in question for the past few days. It appears
that ensemble guidance would say it is more legit. Due to this
increased confidence, we have increased the the chance for
Beyond that, an upper level ridge may build back briefly bringing
mild weather near the start of october but may not last very long
as models hint at yet another incoming pacific front.
Aviation minimal impacts to aviation are expected from some
mid-level moisture in the area today. Ceilings will remain well
aboveVFR thresholds, however, there may be some mountain
obscurations. Especially along the continental divide.

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.
