Discussion The upper level ridge over the region will break
down tonight with the passage of a weak cold front. Moist
southwest flow tonight will bring mountain snow showers and valley
rain showers. Tomorrow snow levels will fall, so more locations
will see snow showers, but most valleys will remain rain. Tonight
and tomorrow will be unstable enough for some graupel showers,
though freezing levels are low enough that lightning will be very
isolated, if any occurs at all. The chance of thunder is so low,
no mention was placed in the forecast.
Travelers should expect rapidly changing conditions over mountain
passes tonight, with a slight chance for less than an inch of snow
to affect lost trail, lolo, or lookout passes by morning.
Relatively cool air will be in place Tuesday in the wake of the
system that moved through Monday. Highs will be around 5 degrees
below seasonal averages, with only scattered mountain showers
remaining, primarily focused in far northwest montana.
Westerly flow aloft will continue throughout the day Wednesday,
and by Wednesday evening, the next trough of low pressure will|
begin moving through. Thursday will likely be a cloudy, cool day,
with widespread precipitation. This system looks similar to
Monday's, and has continued to trend southward over the last
several days, placing the highest precipitation accumulations
south of i-90. Places like clearwater and idaho county id will
likely see rain or rain equivalent totals in the 0.50 to 1.00
inch range over 24 hours. Cool air will this system will again
lower snow levels to 4000 to 5000 ft, so mountain passes could see
some light accumulations with slushy driving during the am hours.
Temperatures moderate on Friday, with high pressure building in
for next weekend.
Aviation Increasing clouds and partial mountain obscurations
late this afternoon and evening. The shortwave ridge over the area
will break down tonight causing increasing showers. Valleys, and
area terminals, will have rain showers, but many mountain
locations may see light snow tonight.

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.
