Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1049 PM PDT THU APR 24 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
A cool and showery weather pattern will linger through the
weekend. A significant warming and drying trend is expected
Monday through Thursday of next week as high pressure builds over
the area.

.DISCUSSION...
Evening update sent out to remove any mention of thunderstorms.
Showers across the region are beginning to diminish this evening
and any showers that do remain are relatively weak compared to
earlier this afternoon. No lightning has been detected for over an
hour as of 9:00 PM. It is not out of the question that we see
another stray lightning strike from the remaining showers across
the area, but chances are quickly fading now that sun has set.

Best chances for showers for the rest of this evening will be
across the northeastern portion of the forecast area, generally
north of I-90. We will then see an increasing chance for showers
across the southeast portion of the forecast area as the next
shortwave pivots around the low that swirling offshore. Latest
HRRR model shows some light shower activity moving into the
Northeast Blue Mtns and onto the Camas Prairie right around 1:00
AM or so and then slowly nudge northward through the early
morning hours. /SVH

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Showers across NE WA and in the Northern Panhandle will
continue to wane overnight. Another weather disturbance will
begin to enter the region from the south overnight with mid and
high level cloud cover already spreading into the region. This
disturbance will bring another round of showers across the TAF
sites of extreme eastern WA and in the ID Panhandle. Expect light
showers to begin to move into the KLWS TAF site around 12Z and
then spread northward through the morning...reaching the
Spokane/Coeur d`Alene area by late morning. MVFR cigs will be
possible through the morning and early afternoon hours, with
highest confidence at the KCOE TAF site. /SVH
