What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
Scattered rain showers will linger over the idaho panhandle today
while much of central and eastern washington remain dry and warm.

Summer will return on Sunday with sunshine and high temperatures
in the 80s. There will be a chance of thunderstorms Monday morning
followed by gusty winds in the afternoon as a strong cold front
moves through the region. Mild weather Tuesday and Wednesday will
give way to the chance for showers later in the week.

Discussion
A minor update had been made to the forecast regarding the
potential for sprinkles and brief light rain showers over the
northeast mountains and northeastern basin zones. Wrap around
moisture diving down the rear flank of a closed low in montana
appears to be more substantial than hires models are anticipating.

Still... The overall flow is becoming a bit more northerly and
thus promoting a weak downslope orientation off the
mountains... And the parent low is drifting ever farther away to
the east. Thus... This morning will be a bit unsettled over the
northeastern reaches of the forecast area... And a threat of
showers will continue through today in the idaho panhandle high
terrain. A general improving trend... Drying and increasingly
sunny... Is still expected for this afternoon over the washington
zones. Fugazzi

Aviation
18z tafs:VFR conditions are expected as a high pressure ridge
builds into the region. Some scattered showers today expected for
kcoe. Winds will be be breezy today through the cascade gaps and
into the basin and keat-kpuw-klws could see gusts 20-25 kts this
afternoon. Jdc

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
