.SYNOPSIS...
Scattered showers and breezy conditions will come to an end
tonight. High pressure will gradually build in through the weekend
and linger into the middle of next week. This will result in
generally dry weather with temperatures warming to above normal by
the weekend.

.DISCUSSION...
Update this evening to lower snow level grids and add some light
accumulations of snow above 5500 ft elevation along the Idaho-
Montana border. Webcams at Silver Mt show some light accumulations
on grassy areas and Mullan Pass ASOS reported light snow falling
this evening. Temperatures were also adjusted for some of the
sheltered valleys across the northeast. Winds have diminished and
will remain light overnight across the northeast. While some of
the valleys will see fog formation and will not drop below the
freezing mark, our cold spots, like Deer Park and Republic will
probably get very close. Thunderstorms ended shortly after sunset
and an area of scattered showers continues to slide off to the
southeast. They should exit the Lewis-Clark Valley shortly and
Camas Prairie in a couple of hours. expect clearing and
diminishing winds overnight with fog for the northeast valleys,
especially along lakes and waterways. /Kelch

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Clearing skies and diminishing winds overnight will
allow fog to form along lakes and waterways in the valleys of
NE WA and N ID and may produce low status at KGEG/KSFF/KCOE and
possibly KPUW. Most likely to be affected is KCOE where greater
amounts of precip will provide a source of low level moisture. Any
stratus that develops will dissipate by 19Z. Winds will again
become gusty after 19Z Wednesday then become light after sunset.
