National Weather Service Spokane WA
555 AM PDT Sun Jun 25 2017


.DISCUSSION...


...HAINES 5 AND 6 TODAY...
...POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORMS ON MONDAY...
...GUSTY WINDS WITH LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY MONDAY AND TUESDAY...

Hot and dry conditions will continue today. The atmosphere will
also be quite unstable promoting haines indices of 5 and 6.
Monday afternoon and evening will feature a chance for
thunderstorms in Eastern WA and N Idaho. Any storms in the evening
will have the potential to produce gusty outflow winds. A cold
front will bring increased winds for Central WA Monday afternoon
and evening then spread into the Basin Tuesday. The winds coupled
with low humidity will bring the potential for rapid fire spread
with any new starts. Temperatures cool back to normal Wednesday
and Thursday then warm again by the week. There are a few chances
for showers or thunderstorms in the northern and eastern mountains
through the week but overall, a dry pattern is expected for the
Inland Northwest.
