12/16/2019 NOAA is having trouble with requests that include wind gusts. I am posting graphs without wind gusts until it gets fixed.
10/9/2019 Updated the Marine Zones.
9/4/2019 Fixed the weather maps due to NOAA moving them.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boise ID 848 PM MST Sat Nov 28 2020
DISCUSSION. Mostly clear and cold tonight as high pressure builds overhead. A lingering area of low cloud and fog over Malheur and far eastern Harney county has contracted in recent hours. Do expect a portion of this to hold on overnight, possibly expanding again on Sunday. Otherwise will see easterly winds increase Sunday morning as a low approaches the Pacific NW coast.
AVIATION. Widespread VFR. Patchy morning IFR/MVFR valley stratus and fog. Surface winds: mainly E to SE 10 kt or less. Winds aloft near 10k feet MSL: variable 5-10 kt, becoming SW 15-25 kt after 29/18Z.
PREV DISCUSSION. SHORT TERM . Tonight through Monday night . Partly to mostly cloudy skies continue today as a system passes by to the north. Patchy fog will linger across portions of eastern Oregon and on the Camas Prairie in Idaho. An upper level ridge will strengthen on Sunday bringing slightly warmer temperatures. A cold front will move into the region from the Gulf of Alaska on Monday afternoon, bringing snow showers to the mountains. Precipitation amounts will be light with this system, with snow accumulations of generally 1-2 inches in the mountains. Temperatures will be near normal.
LONG TERM . Tuesday through Saturday . An upper ridge will develop along the west coast on Tuesday. The ridge will slowly expand eastward and remain entrenched over our area through the end of the week. Dry weather and mostly clear skies will accompany the ridge, except for the possibility of low clouds/fog developing due to a cold stable air mass creating stagnant conditions. Temperatures will be near normal.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous 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.
