SHORT TERM. Today through Sunday . Moisture will continue to flow over the region on zonal flow through Saturday morning. We will continue the Winter Weather Advisory for snow for the mountains, which runs through 12Z Friday. The most significant change in the forecast this morning is the introduction of a slight chance of thunderstorms this evening over mainly northern and eastern sections of the CWA. The SPC in Norman, OK has put much of our area in a category known as "general thunder". This simply indicates that conditions are favorable for thunderstorms, but not for severe storms. We will see instability increase late this afternoon and peak this evening as colder air moves in aloft. We do not expect lots of storms, but certainly can't rule out a few cells and therefore chose to include a mention of a slight chance of thunderstorms from roughly 5 pm MST to 11 pm MST. Heavy snow has been occurring in the mountains this morning, with Brundage receiving close to 4 inches, Bogus Basin 5, and Tamarack close to 6. At slightly lower elevations, McCall has received around 2 inches so far. More is expected today, with totals through 11 pm MST Friday forecast to be near a foot at Bogus, 8 to 10 inches at Tamarack and Brundage, and 4 at McCall. McCall's precipitation type may change to rain this afternoon, limiting their snowfall total, as they are right on the predicted rain/snow line. If they manage to stay all snow, they will get 6 to 8 inches. A cold front will sag south over the region late today, bringing lower snow levels and colder temps for tonight through the remainder of the short term. Snow levels will fall from a range of 5000 in the north and 7000 in the south this morning to a range of 3000 in the north and 5000 in the south Saturday morning.
After this first main push of moisture passes through, the focus will shift to the southern part of the CWA, where snow is forecast to increase late Friday and continue into Saturday morning. At this time, it does not appear that there will be enough snow to warrant an advisory, but that doesn't mean there won't be areas of slick roads. Anyone planning travel on SH 95, 51, or 93 Friday night or Saturday morning should be prepared for wintry travel conditions. Total snow for the higher elevations in the south will range from over a foot on top of Steens mountain, to near a foot in the Owyhees, to 6 to 10 inches in the mountains of southern and southeast Owyhee County and southern Twin Falls County. Lower elevations in these areas will see 1 to 3 inches along the state highways listed earlier. These amounts will fall from this morning through Sunday, with the bulk falling Friday into Friday night.
Saturday, snow will become less likely and accumulating snows will be confined mainly to the mountains. After seeing temps around 10 degrees above normal today, readings will only be around 5 degrees above normal Friday, and then just a degree or two above normal Saturday. Cooling continues through Sunday, when temps will be near normal.
LONG TERM. Sunday night through Thursday . Northwest flow sets up over the Intermountain West on Sunday night as the trough progresses eastward. A ridge builds off the Pacific Coast through Wednesday as conditions stay mostly dry. Model solutions split on Thursday over the progression of an upper trough as it approaches the coast. A chance of rain and snow showers was maintained across the region as there appears to be ample moisture. Temperatures will remain a couple degrees above normal through the period.
AVIATION. Mountains obscured. Widespread MVFR and local IFR/LIFR conditions in rain, snow, and low ceilings continuing through the afternoon. Snow levels 3500-4500 ft MSL. Surface winds southeast- southwest 10 kts or less becoming west- northwest around 10 kts this afternoon. Winds aloft at 10k ft MSL: west 40-50 kts becoming west-northwest 30-40 kts after 18z/Thu.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
