Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1026 AM PST Fri Dec 2 2016

.SYNOPSIS...
Periods of light snow are expected this afternoon and tonight.
Temperatures will be in the 30s, so snow will struggle to
accumulate. A vigorous low pressure system will arrive on Sunday
bringing heavy snow to the Panhandle mountains and the Cascades.
Much colder temperatures will arrive early next week. The cold
pattern will bring the potential for snow late next week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...

Updates were issued this morning to increase pops and lower snow
levels up in the East Slopes of the North Cascades and the
Okanogan Valley as spotter reports have noted snow down to some
lower elevation locations in those areas. As the weather system
responsible for the snow moves west to east it will continue to
spread rain and snow today and tonight over parts of the forecast
area. /Pelatti

.AVIATION...
12Z TAFS: Weather system will spread light rain and snow as it
moves west to east through the aviation area today. Low stratus
decks are likely to continue to cause IFR ceilings to taf sites
with the exception of KMWH and KEAT where VFR conditions are
expected to prevail. /Pelatti
