Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1050 PM PDT Sun Mar 26 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
One storm system will bring light rain and mountain snow tonight
into Monday morning. Showery weather is expected through Tuesday
then a widespread moderate precipitation event will arrive on
Wednesday and Thursday. Friday will bring a dry break period
before more unsettled weather for next weekend.



&&

.DISCUSSION...
Radar is showing a very slight decreasing trend in the intensity
of the precipitation moving through the area tonight. Enough to
perhaps lower some of the QPF amounts expected from the rain
moving through the area but not enough to lower pops too much with
an update this evening. /Pelatti



&&

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFs: A slow passage of a low pressure system warm front
will allow for a prolonged interval of generally light
precipitation over the aviation area. MVFR ceilings and
visibilities associated with the precipitation (lowland and valley
rain with snow generally above 3500 feet MSL) will linger at
times with improvement most likely after 17Z Monday lasting into
the evening. /Pelatti
