Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1053 AM PDT THU MAY 26 2016

.SYNOPSIS...
Expect mild weather with isolated mountain showers again today.
The arrival of a cold front tonight will bring cooler and breezy
conditions for the Memorial Day weekend, along with a good chance
for showers over the Idaho Panhandle and the mountainous portions
of Washington. Look for a gradual warming trend after the
Memorial Day weekend, with 70s by early next week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Current forecast seems to be on track. Expect increasing clouds
through the day as an area of low pressure and associated cold
front sweep down from BC. A few showers persist in the central
panhandle mountains this morning. Otherwise the best chance of
precipitation will be afternoon showers near the Canadian border.
A stray lightning strike is possible late this afternoon.
Temperatures will be mild but cloud cover will be limited by the
cloud cover. /rfox.

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFS: Mid and high level clouds will be on the increase today
with primarily VFR conditions. A few showers will be over the
central ID mountains with light precipitation and mountains
obscurred. Anticipate convective showers to develop along the
Canadian border this afternoon into this evening. As the front
sweeps in overnight, the shower chances will spread southward
and may clip the KGEG-KCOE corridor toward 12z. Gusty winds will
develop this afternoon due to daytime mixing. Winds will taper off
this evening, but the arrival of the front will kick up winds
toward morning. /rfox.
