Synopsis
Breezy winds across central washington will decrease this evening.

Showers for southeastern wa and the id panhandle will be on the
decrease as well. The weather on Friday will be mild and dry with
light winds. The weekend and early next week will feature average
temperatures and scattered light showers, mainly over the
mountains.

Discussion
Tonight through Friday night: elongated trough will continue to
push into the desert southwest. There is enough instability this
afternoon for widely scattered showers to develop across portions
of E wa and N id. Expect these showers to continue through the
early evening and then diminish with the setting sun. North to
northwesterly winds will continue through the evening hours as the
surface pressure gradient remains tightly packed across central
wa. Generally through the night we will see decreasing showers and
clouds. There is a threat of fog and low clouds forming overnight
into Friday morning. The fog would likely be across the valleys of
ne wa and north id as well as some of the cascade valleys. Friday
will be a day unlike we have seen in awhile! The ridge will nose
into the area with mostly sunny skies to start the day. Clouds
will increase in the afternoon, but given lack of instability it
should just be some flat CU and/or cirrus. The ridge will flatten
Friday night ahead of the next weather disturbance. Some high
level clouds will increase through the night and overnight there
will be a slight chance of showers along the cascade crest.

/nisbet
Saturday through Wednesday: a weak trough will push through the
region as the ridge flattens and bring light rainshowers to the
cascades and idaho panhandle through the Sunday. Rain amounts will
not be significant with only a few hundreths over the weekend.

Models have been on a drying trend from the previous runs leading
to the decrease to precip amounts and limiting to the cascades and
idaho panhandle. By early Monday, a ridge begins to build into
the region and rain chances diminishes across the region. The
region can expect fairly dry and mild weather through Wednesday.

Thursday through Friday: the ridge shifts east and a couple of
systems will push through the region bringing more widespread
rainshowers to the region. The first is expected mid Thursday and
expected to impact the cascades and idaho panhandle. Model
agreement is fairly good on the timing and amounts. The more
robust system is expected Friday and into the weekend.

Isolated thunderstorms are possible but the confidence is low
enough to not mention in forecast.

Temperatures for the period will mild and on the the cool side of
normal. The highs will be in the mid 50s to low 60s. The lows
will hover in the mid 20s to 30s. /jdc

Aviation
00z tafs: afternoon instability coupled will keep a threat for
convective showers through 02z for all terminals in idaho and far
eastern reaches of wa. Moses lake and wenatchee will be dry with
breezy northwest winds. Main aviation concern overnight will be
potential for shallow fog in the river valleys and threat for
stratus around pullman. Model guidance is split whether this will
develop so will maintain inherited forecast for CIGS arnd 600 ft
agl at pullman and await for 00z model guidance to decide if trends
are drier or consistent. Needless to say, confidence is low. All
terminals will beVFR by 19z fri. /sb

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.
