.DISCUSSION...AN UPPER LEVEL LOW LOCATED NEAR 40N 140W WILL BRING
RAIN TO EASTERN WASHINGTON AND OREGON THROUGH THE WEEK. A FRONT WITH
WIDESPREAD RAIN WILL STALL OVER THE CASCADES TODAY. SOME RAIN WILL
SPREAD AHEAD OF THIS SYSTEM INTO THE AREA. THE FRONT WILL MOVE
SLOWLY EAST AND WEAKEN TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY. FWZ 639, 610, AND
611 WILL RECEIVE AN INCH OR MORE RAIN THROUGH THURSDAY, WITH LESSER
AMOUNTS FOR ZONES FARTHER EAST. THE FORECAST FOR SATURDAY ONWARD IS
FOR DRIER CONDITIONS, BUT I AM NOT VERY CONFIDENT THAT THE FORECAST
WILL NOT CHANGE.
