SYNOPSIS. The remainder of the holiday weekend will be seasonably cool and mainly dry. The only exception will be light snow to the Cascade Passes and Idaho Panhandle mountains overnight into Saturday morning. The next system will track through the region on Monday and should deliver a good chance of precipitation for most locations. Much of the precipitation will consist of snow with light amounts, except for the possibility of moderate snow near the Cascades. The remainder of next week looks dry with light winds and probably low clouds and fog.
DISCUSSION. Evening update to the forecast to better align current winds and temps to the forecast.
The weak front is still on track to move through the region from the west to east overnight bringing mostly light precipitation, if any, to the Basin and Palouse areas and focusing on the Cascade Crest and later on into the northern valleys in Northeast Washington and into the Idaho Panhandle. What looks like a rather quick moving front, winds are already picking up ahead of the front in the Blues and the Palouse. Areas in the Okanogan Valley are also seeing some increase in the winds this evening. Places in the western part of the Columbia Basin are seeing continued low stratus and fog. Confidence is growing that these areas will not scour out the fog until at least mid day Saturday with the band of precip and front moving through overnight. 850mb winds are going to be favorable for breezy conditions through about 16z Saturday out of the west. The forecast still looks on track for the Cascades and Crest elevations to see the best chances for overnight snow accumulation, and then moving into the Idaho Panhandle by late morning for lighter amounts. Most of the lowland areas across the Basin will be missed or may see just enough to wet the grounds.
The remainder of the weekend will be seasonably cool and mostly dry. /Dewey
AVIATION. 06Z TAFS: A weak system moves in late tonight into Saturday morning. Ahead of it low clouds and fog will persist near MWH and EAT, with IFR conditions. As the front moves in overnight into Saturday morning this may help lift the conditions to MVFR here, but confidence it low with the better chance for improvement developing after 18-20Z. Toward GEG/SFF/COE/PUW/LWS the threat of light precipitation develops toward 11-15z and starts to exit between 16-18Z. This is expected to come with some MVFR conditions, with possible IFR conditions with any precipitation. However the overall risk of precipitation is limited at TAF sites, with the highest risk around COE and PUW. The conditions are expected to improve some in the afternoon, except around PUW where moisture from the passing precipitation threat may hold the MVFR conditions in place. Confidence in improvement is medium. Look for the best threat of snow around the Cascades late tonight/early Saturday and Idaho Panhandle mountains by Saturday morning to early afternoon, where mountain obscurations are expected. /Dewey

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.
