Discussion High pressure through Wednesday will provide mostly
sunny skies and warming temperatures across north central idaho
and western montana. Winds will be fairly calm, aside from
blustery afternoon winds, particularly along the continental
divide. By Wednesday, most valleys across the region will see the
return of 90 degree high temperatures along with the slight chance
for some localized thunderstorms across SW montana.
A cold front will pass through the northern rockies on Thursday
and bring much cooler conditions (about 10 degrees cooler compared
to Wednesday), cloud cover, and the chance for some showers and
thunderstorms. After a warmer, mostly sunny Friday, the long range
models are in pretty good agreement regarding the passage of yet
another cold front next weekend. While early indications suggest
sufficient moisture for at least some showers, it's too early to
know just how much precipitation could be possible. That being
said, it's a pretty good bet that temperatures will be at or below|
Thereafter, the models are at odds regarding whether the
weakening high pressure to our south will amplify (warmer), or if
the presence of troughing northwest flow aloft (cooler) will
prevail. Much of this uncertainty stems from the ultimate path of
an east pacific tropical cyclone that is likely to form off the
coast of mexico in the coming days. This cyclone will ultimately
be the influence upon the strength and position of the elongated
high pressure ridge across the SW usa.
Aviation Blustery winds may accompany kgpi and kbtm through
this evening, roughly around 19 0300z. Otherwise, all terminals
will experienceVFR conditions through Monday under high pressure.

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.
