Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Spokane WA 956 AM PST Sat Dec 7 2019
SYNOPSIS. A storm system will move into the area today and bring widespread precipitation into tonight. Light to moderate snow accumulations are expected in the mountains with rain in the valleys and locally very light freezing rain. Drier weather is expected Monday and Tuesday followed by chances for rain and snow Wednesday and the end of the week.
DISCUSSION. Update: The region will conintue to be influenced by the moisture that is pushed into the region from the Low over California. It will bring widespread rainshowers to the Basin and mountain snow to elevations above 4000 ft. The showers are expected to be off and on through the afternoon. Snow accumulations are expected to be up to an inch at most. The threat of any freezing precip is decreasing as temperatures are rising above the freezing point but some isolated slick spots are possible mainly in the Waterville Plateau region. Mountain pass travel could be impacted by the light snow accumulations. /JDC
AVIATION. 18Z TAFS: Moist southwesterly flow will continue today bringing showers to our TAF sites. Flight categories have been better than expected this morning at GEG-SFF-COE so have put them in a mix of VFR/MVFR through the early afternoon. Afternoon/evening showers will likely redevelop again bringing down visibilities and ceilings. Beyond this, clearing late tonight will likely bring fog/BR to most TAF sites, however, drier northwesterly flow setting up may limit the length and severity. Wilson

I do not sell or share any user data or anything else for that matter. I do not keep site logs longer than I need to to keep bad actors off the site. Basically, I delete them after looking at them. If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website. I do not believe this site is subject to CCPA but I am doing what I can to follow the guidelines anyway.

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 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.
