Bands of rain and high elevation snow will across southeast
washington and the southern idaho panhandle tonight then taper off
to showers on Sunday. Elevations above 3500 feet on the camas
prairie and in the northeast blue mountains will have the
potential for wet snow accumulations overnight. A showery early
spring weather pattern is expected through Monday. A break period
Tuesday will be followed by followed by a wet and windy frontal
system on Thursday... With cool, showery and breezy conditions into
Persistent wrap around band moisture continues to bring the
eastern third of washington and idaho panhandle rain and higher
elevation snow this evening. Heavier rain and higher elevation
snow is expected to continue overnight over southeast washington,
southern idaho panhandle and camas prairie as this weather system
slowly moves out to the east.
Of note there was moderate to heavy snow falling on the higher
elevations of the camas prairie. Highway 95 at winchester was
showing some impressive pictures of the white stuff accumulating
on the highway since about 7 pm. This will continue overnight as
northwest flow pushes moisture into the region. The snow advisory
will continue in the region 4000 feet and above into late morning
Lookout pass on i-90 was also getting some light snow but so far
no accumulations on wet roads. However, it's expected another 1 to
2 inches will slowly accumulate in the area before late Sunday
Evening rain has been added to the spokane coeur d'alene corridor
as heavier concentrations of showers have set up in this area. The
overall forecast is for rain and higher elevation snow to slowly|
sag south and east and snow levels to lower into Sunday morning so
there may be some localized light accumlations of valley snow. It
will take longer into Sunday afternoon and evening) for drier air
and less favorable dynamics to significantly decrease
precipitation in the idaho panhandle. Tc
00z tafs: low pressure will hang out over the southern id
panhandle through tonight into Sunday morning. Abundant moisture
and upslope flow into kpuw will result in vlifr conditions at
times into Sunday morning. Klws is expected to see rain with MVFR
cigs. Precip will wind down as the low pulls away Sunday morning.
Low stratus with MVFR ifr CIGS will be possible across the
spokane coeur d'alene corridor Sunday morning as moisture lingers

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.
