NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPOKANE WA
644 AM PDT TUE JUL 28 2015


.DISCUSSION...
LOW PRESSURE HAS SHIFTED OFF TO THE EAST LEAVING THE INLAND
NORTHWEST WITH MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND COOL MORNING TEMPERATURES.
THE WARMING TREND WILL BEGIN TODAY WITH TEMPERATURES REBOUNDING
QUICKLY INTO THE 80S FOR MOST VALLEY AREAS. A FEW MID AND HIGH
LEVEL CLOUDS WILL STREAM ACROSS THE REGION TODAY...POSSIBLY
LEADING TO LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS ALONG THE CANADIAN BORDER. OTHERWISE
THE STORY FOR THE WEEK WILL BE THE HOT AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES, LOW
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES, AND POOR OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES. AS MENTIONED
PREVIOUSLY, THE HOT WEATHER PATTERN WILL FORTUNATELY BE
ACCOMPANIED BY RELATIVELY LIGHT WINDS THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
