.SYNOPSIS...
Expect another mild day for Thursday. After a morning round of
sprinkles, there`s an increased chance of more elevated showers
and thunderstorms overnight. Noticeable cooling will begin on
Friday with a another chance of showers and a few thunderstorms. A
strong pattern shift to much cooler and unsettled conditions will

.DISCUSSION...
Made a few updates based on radar returns and observations. The
mid level instability is generating light showers and sprinkles
that have been reaching the ground...from Pullman to Coeur d`Alene
and areas to the east. This area of instability and moisture will
push off to the northeast through the morning...although surface
based instability will develop and with another round of
convection mainly for the ID panhandle. /rfox.

&&

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFS: Mid level instability will keep a deck of mid clouds
and isolated showers over north Idaho. Another round of moisture
with elevated isolated showers will move into the region late this
evening and overnight...mainly east of KMWH to Colville. Cloud
bases will stay VFR but may get occasional clouds to near 4k ft
especially over north Idaho. Winds will remain light with
downslope winds increasing in KEAT tonight. /rfox.
