Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1008 AM PST Wed Feb 22 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
The widespread wet weather of the past couple days will begin to
subside as a cooler and unstable air mass takes up residence
across the region today. This air mass will deliver periodic
showers to the area, with most of them occurring over the
mountains. Temperatures will remain cooler than normal for this
time of year with highs generally in the mid 30s to mid 40s and
nighttime lows in the teens to middle 20s.


&&

.DISCUSSION...
Have let the advisories for snow expire. Light snow showers will
continue across portions of southeast WA and north ID through the
afternoon. All cameras in the area do not show any more
accumulating snow on the roads.

The flood watch has also been let go. All area rivers, streams and
creeks are on the decline. Cooler temps will keep rivers below any
critical levels.


&&

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFs: Our confidence for most of the forecast sites is low
today. Expect IFR conditions to persist at MWH due to stubborn
fog. This should break sometime between 20z-22Z. All other sites
are showing improving conditions. Tonight IFR fog is expected to
redevelop btwn 06-12Z across the same offending TAF locations as
this morning.
