.SYNOPSIS....
Dry and hot weather will persist for the next several days. High
temperatures in the 90s to near 105 will be common through the
beginning of next week. A gradual cooling trend will take place by
mid week. A more dramatic change to the hot pattern is possible by
the middle of next week with an increasing threat of thunderstorms
each day from Monday through Thursday.

.DISCUSSION...

Rest of today: No big changes to the fcst, with very hot wx
continuing under our strong upper ridge. The heat advsy remains in
effect for today. We`ll be focusing on the potential for gusty
winds near the Cascades for Saturday... then dealing with the
cool-down and thunder chances for next week resulting from a weak
cool front passage.bz

&&

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFS: VFR conditions can be expected over the TAF sites for at
least the next 24 hours. Smoke is possible across the northern
Cascades as the current fire near Lake Chelan gets more
active...but is not expected to reduce vsbys at KEAT tonight if
any inversion sets up.bz
