A slow moving frontal system will bring increasing chances for
rain today into Wednesday. Conditions on Wednesday will be chilly
and wet especially over the idaho panhandle and eastern third f
washington where periods of rain and high temperatures in the 50s
will make it feel like an october day. Aside from a few showers
over the idaho panhandle, drier, breezy and more seasonal weather
is expected Thursday through Saturday. A return of to unsettled is
expected by Sunday.
The forecast has been updated for this afternoon and evening to
slow the arrival of light rain across most of eastern washington
and north idaho. The weather models have trended slower and
lighter with the initial bands of precipitation this afternoon and
evening. Rain is expected to increase after midnight along the
slow moving front. By the early morning hours wed, the front will
be over the idaho panhandle and the eastern third of washington.
As the trough pivots inland and the front stalls, the panhandle
and eastern third of washington will likely experience a prolonged
period of off and on rain that lingers into Wednesday evening.
Temperatures for Wednesday have been lowered into the mid to upper
50s for places like spokane, metaline falls, kellogg, sandpoint,
and st maries. A damp, dreary and cool day is on tap for these
communities tomorrow. Gkoch
18z tafs: bands of light rain will slowly spread into central and
eastern washington this afternoon and evening. At this time it
looks like the initial round of rain will be relatively light with
ceilings remaining above 4000 feet at wenatchee and moses lake.
The models are in decent agreement that precipitation will
increase after 06z across the idaho panhandle and eastern third of
washington. Ceilings will likely lower into the 1000-2000ft range
around spokane and coeur d'alene prior to 12z and could fall below
1000 feet around sunrise depending on precipitation amounts. Low
ceilings could persist much of the day with periods of light rain
for these airports near the spokane metro. Gkoch

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.
