Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Spokane WA 922 PM PDT Fri Aug 7 2020
SYNOPSIS. Mainly dry weather will continue through the middle of the work week. A weak cold front will bring breezy winds on Saturday. After a cool and comfortable weekend, warmer weather is expected early in the work week. Another cold front will bring breezy weather by Tuesday followed by cooler temperatures later in the week along with a small chance of mountain showers especially on Thursday.
DISCUSSION. Minor adjustment to the forecast this evening to add pops within close proximity to the British Columbia border tonight as a weak disturbance has the potential to produce some very light showers there tonight as it moves through. /Pelatti
AVIATION. 06Z TAFS: Middle and high clouds continue to stream in and thicken from west to east as a weak impulse moves through the region. Once the disturbance passes skies will clear through the morning Saturday. VFR conditions are expected. Westerly winds will increase by 18z and become gusty in the afternoon in most locations. /Pelatti

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
