852 pm pdt Tue aug 20 2019
Wednesday a cold front will produce gusty winds and a chance for
rain. Temperatures will cool down after the front with a return
to highs in the upper 70s and 80s through the middle of next week.
Otherwise the weather looks mostly dry.
Update sent to fine tune winds for Wednesday afternoon and evening.
The evening models are coming into better agreement of precipitation
setting up along the front while crossing the cascades. This will
initially fall into dry subcloud layers and reinforce the cooling
which in conjunction with the push of cooler, maritime air will lead
to a robust and short-lived wind burst. This looks to start in the
east slopes and impact the hwy 97 corridor around 1-2pm... Move across
the western central columbia basin 2-4pm (including lake roosevelt and
southern reaches of ferry stevens) and into the spokane-cd'a area...
palouse... Lewiston area... And remainder of the idaho panhandle 5-7 pm.
Wind gusts of 25-35 mph will be common and localized areas could be
upward of 45 mph. The sudden burst of this event could lead to some
minor tree damage, especially for any weakened or dead trees and
branches fallen on power lines could yield a few power outages.
Those with plans on area lakes should be vigilant of a sudden burst
of winds and switch from S SW to W NW while this comes through. Some
shop and wind waves cannot be ruled out and could become dangerous
to smaller vessels like kayaks. The winds may also pick up some
dust but with cooler temperatures and higher humidity arriving shortly
after the winds... This does not look like a favorable pattern for|
widespread dust issues. Sb
00z tafs: rich moisture streaming into the region ahead of
a pacific cold front will result in broken to overcast mid
and high clouds at or above 10,000 feet agl. The cold front
will move into the cascades Wednesday afternoon around 18-20z
and slowly eastward toward moses lake around 00z. Bands of
showers will develop along the front and could result in brief
rain at wenatchee and moses lake. The front is not expected to
reach spokane-pullman-lewiston until 00-03z. A weak marine push
arrives tonight bringing a light push of west to southwest
winds 05-10z. Pullman may gusts near 20 mph briefly. Of greater
aviation concern will be gusty west to northwest winds moving
out ahead of the cold front Wednesday afternoon 21-03z. Sharp
wind shifts to the west northwest accompanied by gusts of 25-30 mph
will be possible. Sb

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.
