Synopsis
Mainly mountain showers will continue today. A cold front will
bring more widespread rain and snow tonight into Friday, with
colder temperatures and locally breezy winds behind the front.

Cool and dry weather will persist through the weekend into early
next week.

Discussion
Rest of today... No updates to current forecast expected with a
generally stable weather pattern over the region under
increasingly moist northwest flow aloft. Areas of fog and low
clouds will persist through much of the day in places with high
clouds aloft keeping Sun from appreciably eroding these stratus
patches. A benign but locally damp and cloudy day still looks good
for the general forecast. Fugazzi

Aviation
18z tafs: light easterly winds earlier this am have advected lifr
vis and ceilings into the kgeg TAF site. The presence of high
clouds aloft will retard improvement today with 12z spokane raob
indicating an lifr stratus layer above the saturated surface layer.

The east wind has ceased as of 18z and multiple hires models
indicate a weak southerly surface wind developing by 21z. Forecast
confidence is moderate that this wind shift will improve
visibility... But confidence is high that this will promote
continued ifr or low MVFR stratus through 23z-00z. The ksff and
kcoe TAF sites will gradually improve through the afternoon. Kpuw
and klws likely to remainVFR with light easterly winds keeping
basin fg st away. Kmwh will shift to southerly winds this
afternoon and will allow nearby st to advect into this TAF site
after 21z. Keat trend of lifting MVFR ceilings through the
afternoon looks reasonable. Mjf

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.
