Discussion A cold front will move through the northern
rockies today, bringing cooler temperatures and gusty westerly
winds. The strongest winds are expected across west-
central southwest montana and lemhi county, where gusts up to
30-35 mph will be possible this afternoon. Scattered showers and
thunderstorms will develop across northwest montana this afternoon
and evening, where marginal moisture and instability will be
present. The best coverage of showers and storms is expected along
the continental divide, especially in glacier national park.
A ridge of high pressure will develop over the area Tuesday and
Wednesday. Temperatures will warm back to near normal Tuesday.
Come Wednesday, western montana valleys will reach into the mid to
upper 80s and low elevations of north central idaho reach into
the mid to upper 90s.
Confidence continues to increase for a return of shower and
thunderstorm activity Thursday. Remnant subtropical moisture|
associated with tropical storm ivo in the eastern pacific will
move over the northern rockies. Enough instability and moisture
will be present for isolated shower and thunderstorm development.
Labor day weekend looks warm and dry. Model ensemble guidance
suggests an amplifying ridge of high pressure across the northern
rockies as a upper level low pressure system deepens of the
pacific northwest coastline. A dry and warm southwesterly flow
will promote above average temperatures.
Aviation A cold front moving through the area today will cause
some showers, but the showers will be isolated and weak enough
thatVFR conditions are expected at area terminals throughout the
day. The gusty westerly winds this afternoon will likely be a
bigger impact to aviation with gusts around 30 knots possible with

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. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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 numerious 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.
