Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1030 PM PDT TUE JUL 28 2015

.SYNOPSIS....
Summer conditions return to the Inland Northwest as a ridge of
high pressure takes control. Dry and increasingly hot weather
pattern will persist through the weekend. The only chance of
precipitation in the near future will be a small chance of showers
or thunderstorms over extreme southeast Washington and north-
central Idaho this weekend.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Diurnally driven cumulus and convection will continue to
dissipate across the northern tier counties this evening. Some
scattered mid clouds and high clouds will brush the international
border from a weak disturbance tracking across B.C., but overall
expect a mostly clear night as high pressure builds into the
region. Downslope winds will switch over in the east slopes of the
Cascades this evening, but most other winds will be remain light.
Dewpoints are running lower than yesterday, but may see some
pockets of elevated dewpoints and boundary layer moisture where
there is the potential for patchy fog, especially in far northern
ID late tonight. This would be short lived as dry and warmer
weather is expected Wednesday as temperatures warm 5 to 8 degrees
warmer than today. /rfox.

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: As high pressure builds over the region, expect VFR
condtions at the TAF sites for the next 24 hours. Areas of high
AC will skirt along the Canadian border with a few light mountain
sprinkles into the overnight hours, then expect generally clear
skies to all forecast sites through much of Wednesday. Winds will
be fairly light and terrain driven. /rfox
