Update
Added isolated showers from around downtown spokane to the coeur
d'alene area and down to the northern palouse.

Synopsis
Dry westerly flow will promote decreasing clouds into the weekend
and seasonal temperatures. A warming trend with above average
temperatures is expected early next week as higher pressure builds
in. A cold front passage will break down the ridge around mid
week resulting in a period of dry and breezy conditions.

Discussion
There is just enough instability along a slowly advancing mid-
level frontal band for showers to form early this morning. It was
previously thought that these showers would be confined over the
central panhandle mountains, but radar confirms that showers are
extending as far west as spokane west plains. This instability
will weaken for showers to diminish by mid morning. Svh

Aviation
12z tafs: a mid level frontal band draped across the spokane-
coeur d'alene corridor will produce isolated showers early this
morning through about 14z at kgeg, ksff and kcoe. These showers
are expected to wane by the time the frontal band reaches kpuw
by the late morning hours. This will leave just some mid level
cloudiness that will thin out in the afternoon. Mid to high level
clouds will stream across northeast wa and into the north id
panhandle through Saturday night. Also expect a surge of
northwest winds at keat this evening with gusts to around 20 kts.

today through Monday night: showers over the idaho panhandle will
decrease today. Dry westerly flow will also result in decreasing
cloud cover, although some clouds will linger across the region
today resulting in partly sunny conditions. Nothing but sunshine
is expected for Sunday though. Temperatures near seasonal norms
for mid august with typical evening breezes through the cascade
gaps. Svh
Tuesday through Friday: the models are showing relative agreement in
the timing and movement of an incoming trough. As the low moves
into british columbia, models are showing moderate agreement that
most precipitation will skirt north of most of the region. At the
moment, it looks like the cascades and northern mountains may see
precipitation Wed pm thurs am. Following, the models are not
showing any precipitation into the weekend.

Late Wednesday into Friday have the potential for breezy winds in
much of the region, especially the eastern cascades, columbia
basin, palouse, and west plains. As the week progresses, the
models are showing a strengthening trend, but still time to
determine. The warming trend continues with the peak
temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday. These temperatures will
reach highs in the upper 80s and 90s region wide. Some areas, such
as the columbia basin and l-c valley, may see temperatures reach
the upper 90s. Low dew points accompanying these high temperatures
will bring the chance for very dry conditions and an increase in
potential for fire starts. The breezy conditions will also
contribute to the need to monitor this hot and dry environment.

Thursday and Friday temperatures will be relatively cooler, with
highs dropping 5-10 degrees between mid-week and Friday. Js

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.
