Updated Aviation Discussion
AVIATION . 00Z TAFs . VFR conditions across all sites with mid to high level clouds beginning to clear out over eastern TAF sites this afternoon. Mostly few-sct mid to high level clouds will persist overnight, clearing tomorrow with SKC expected for most sites after 12Z. Breezy winds will weaken overnight becoming light, generally less than 10kts after 6Z at most sites. Diurnal cycle of breezy conditions will continue tomorrow, with winds rising to 10-15kts starting 17Z. Lawhorn/82
PREV DISCUSSION. /issued Issued by National Weather Service Spokane WA/
SHORT TERM . Today through Friday night. Generally fair weather and low sensible weather concerns in the short term with a warming trend that starts Friday. Further, breezy to locally windy conditions are expected to develop Thursday afternoon continuing into Thursday night. Latest IR/vis satellite imagery and surface obs depict partly-mostly cloudy skies overhead with lower ceilings in the mountains where there is some light rainfall. Of which, the latest radar display shows a few lingering light rain showers/sprinkles across the northeast Blue mountains, nearby foothills, and Wallowa county. Current thinking is this activity should continue to diminish and be over by the end of mid afternoon. Latest water vapor imagery shows a mid-level trough with a closed low over the northern British Columbia/Alberta border extending south across the Northwest CONUS with an amplified ridge upstream in the eastern North Pacific. The upper trough will lift north and east the next 24 hrs with the region remaining under the influence of cyclonic flow. Meanwhile, the upper high will be evolving east with modest 500 hPa height rises spreading into the area Thursday. This is expected to be followed by quasi-zonal flow overhead within the large scale pattern Friday, along with the development of a closed low offshore CA/West Coast. Overall, partly cloudy skies tomorrow followed by clear skies Friday with temperatures warming into the 80s, upper 80s in the Basin. Modest breezes tomorrow with gusts peaking 25-35 mph in the eastern Columbia Gorge onto parts of the OR Basin and in the Kittitas Valley; light winds expected Friday. 80/ET
LONG TERM . Saturday through Wednesday . The main feature driving weather across eastern Washington and northern Idaho through the extended period will be a powerful upper ridge of high pressure and return of hot conditions. This ridge will build from the Four Corners region westward into the Desert Southwest by early next week.
As rising heights overspread the Inland Northwest, expect large scale subsidence and continued dry conditions to make for a stretch of very hot weather beginning Saturday and lasting through at least Monday. High temperatures will easily climb into the triple digits across much of the Columbia Basin Sunday and Monday afternoons. Long range models, including ensembles of both the GFS and European are in very good agreement in handling this feature and threat of significant heat. In addition, with substantial daytime heating and weak southwesterly flow, the threat of isolated mainly mountain thunderstorms will enter the picture late Sunday afternoon and evening, and again Monday afternoon and evening. This would naturally lead to an increase in fire danger, so will have to keep a close eye on this threat as it draws near.
Toward the middle of next week, models diverge somewhat. The European suggests the ridge will remain anchored in place, with a continuation of dangerous heat. The GFS depicts a weakness in the ridge developing over the Pacific Northwest, allowing for an abatement of heat by the middle of the week. For now, will trend slightly above normal as the National Blend continues to paint an unseasonably warm pattern into the middle of the week.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
