Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
949 PM PST SUN FEB 7 2016

.SYNOPSIS...
Strong high pressure will develop tonight and persist into
Wednesday. Dry and mild conditions are expected for the first half
of the week. A more progressive and unsettled pattern will return
late this week bringing a chance of light rain Thursday in the
Cascades and over the rest of the region Friday through the weekend.


&&

.DISCUSSION...
The weather has been rather quiet this evening as a ridge of high
pressure builds over the region. The main weather concern will be
where and if fog forms overnight. A persistence forecast has been
adopted for the fog tonight. Only minor changes made to the
current forecast package. /Kelch

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: A strong upper level ridge aloft and building high
pressure at the surface will promote clearing skies tonight after
mid level cloud decks move out to the east this evening. A strong
nocturnal inversion is expected to develop overnight with fog
development by dawn especially near water courses. The best
candidates for morning LIFR conditions will be at KGEG and KSFF
and less likely but possible at KLWS and KEAT. Enough mixing is
expected to occur by 18Z or so to evaporate fog for VFR conditions
through 00Z Tuesday. /EK
