SHORT TERM. Today through Independence Day. Southwest flow takes over, bringing warmer weather our way as we move into the holiday weekend. We will see occasional pockets of showers and thunderstorms daily. This will vary depending on the day, as we may not see some of those trends develop until within a few hours of development. For today, we are looking for showers this morning across portions of the Snake Plain and southern/eastern highlands to quickly move northeast, with another round developing late this afternoon across southern areas and spreading northeast tonight. Today's storms will likely produce light rain and some gusty winds with nothing severe anticipated. Winds look pretty gusty this afternoon and evening across the Arco Desert north and west into the central mountains and along the Montana border. At the moment, they look lighter than yesterday . precluding us from needing any type of headline. The potential for strong/severe storms exists Friday generally north of a Challis- Blackfoot- Victor line. For Independence Day, there is a limited chance of showers and storms across the central mountains, eastern and southeast highlands. It will be breezy in the afternoon in some places, but should quickly diminish at sunset for any fireworks activities taking place across eastern Idaho. Keyes
LONG TERM. Sunday through Thursday. Upper flow over East Idaho remains southwest through the extended period with upper trough across PacNW states. Weak shortwaves eject out of the trough across the region, so there remains a general threat of isolated thunderstorms each day. Focus remains higher elevations, mainly across the Upper Snake regions. Temperatures remain near or above normal through the period with occasional afternoon gusty periods. DMH
AVIATION. Broad swath of sprinkles continues this morning across east Idaho. Will likely see this region develop into generally isolated SHRA/TSRA this evening, potentially impacting all terminals except KSUN. Gusty outflows in excess of 30kts possible. Clearing expected at KBYI after 06Z but SHRA could continue for KPIH/KIDA and especially KDIJ. Ceilings likely to remain VFR throughout. DMH
FIRE WEATHER. Warmer weather returns as southwest flow develops across central and eastern Idaho, with this pattern holding steady well into next week. There isn't a lot of monsoon moisture getting pulled into the pattern, so it doesn't look like daily thunderstorm chances will be widespread. With the limited moisture, at times it will make forecasting where showers and storms a bit more uncertain than we normally might see. For today, the current trends have the morning showers and storms shifting into Wyoming, with the next round developing across the south and pushing northeast tonight . impacting most fire zones except 422 and 475. Storms at the moment aren't expected to produce much rainfall, mainly gusty winds and maybe some small hail. Outside of storms today, wind gusts over 30mph are likely across the Arco Desert, central mountains and Zone 411 along the Montana border. Humidity values will begin dropping each day. Decent recovery is expected at lower elevations, with some limited recovery overnight at mid/upper slopes. Keyes
PIH WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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.
