Discussion Gusty south to southwest winds have developed as
expected over most of the area. Wind advisories have been posted
for the evening hours. Clouds are increasing as well as a cold
front approaches across washington. The cold front will move
through the area tonight with light showers and slowly diminishing
winds. Wednesday will be cooler and remaining breezy in many
areas. The next system approaching from the pacific will spread
clouds across the area with moisture returning to far northwest
montana by late in the day. After a warm up for Thursday, a cold
front will usher in a wet and cooler period through Monday,
followed by a warmer air mass and decreasing chance of rainfall
through the middle of next week.
Aviation Gusty winds have developed across the area and should
peak 18 0000 18 0300. Winds may reach speeds as high as 40 kts at
times for some of the valley locations. Wind speed shear will be
a concern for both kgpi and kmso this evening due to 40-50kt west
winds aloft just above the surface.

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.
