Discussion Some low and mid clouds this morning hanging over
the region are causing some very light rain, mainly in the
mountains. In northwest montana where skies have cleared out more,
there is some patchy valley fog. Locations with visibility
sensors are reporting visibility 1 to 3 miles this morning, though
some denser patches are likely as well.
The main change in the longer term was to increase the chances of
precipitation for the trough next weekend. Confidence is
increasing quickly for a wetter system during this time period.
Snow levels remain a challenge though, especially early next
week. Though models agree well on bringing the trough through the|
area, they disagree on how long the cooler air mass associated
with it persists over the area.
Aviation Fog has formed in a few locations across northwest
montana this morning including libby and at kgpi. Expect fog to
dissipate by 26 1600z in these areas later this morning.
Otherwise, expect clouds to persist through the afternoon and
begin to dissipate after 26 2200z as an upper level ridge builds
in. More sunshine withVFR conditions are expected on Wednesday

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
