Synopsis
Strong winds will develop as a cold front moves through the
region today. Gusts up to 50 mph over lowland and valley locations
with gusts to 60 mph or higher over the mountains are possible
today. Unsettled weather will continue Wednesday and Thursday
however temperatures will remain mild for the season. A cold front
late in the week will cool the region down again to more seasonal
temperatures with the return of mountain snow.

Discussion
The mixing and warm air advection brought about by the robust
southwest winds have caused most locations to overachieve as far
as their forecast high temperatures as of 1 pm. With this in mind
have updated the forecast high temperatures for today with now
calls for more widespread 60s to lower 70s for most lowland
and valley locations. Wind advisory remains in effect and
unchanged. Pelatti

Aviation
Strong winds today...

12z tafs: cold front passage to bring strong winds to the aviation
area today. A few locations in the lee of the cascades as well as
parts of the columbia basin have not had the stronger southwest
winds totally mix down to the surface and as such there is some
mention of low level wind shear until 19z as after that time it is
expected that the upper level winds should mix down to the
surface. Wind gusts of 30 to 45 mph to prevail with some isolated
gusts between 50 and 60 mph between 22-00z, otherwise the typical
nuisance expected with the windy conditions would be blowing dust
and haze. Winds expected to decrease substantially in the early
evening after 03z Wednesday and brief clearing. More clouds invade
sky after 06z Wednesday and on through tonight into early
Wednesday morning signaling the approach of yet another low
pressure system expected to bring rain to the aviation area
Wednesday afternoon after 18z Wednesday. Pelatti

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.
