Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1040 PM PDT Sat Mar 25 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
A weak ridge of high pressure over the Inland Northwest will bring
dry weather overnight into Sunday morning. Another wet weather
system moves into region late Sunday and brings widespread valley
rain and mountain snow, most of which will be fairly light.
Showery weather is then expected to persist into early next week.
The next chance of widespread precipitation will arrive on
Wednesday and Thursday.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Radar shows the showers have pretty much dissipated and satellite
shows the cumulus continues to decrease leaving mostly clear
skies. An increase of cirrus with the building upper level ridge
will press east of the Cascades overnight. Meanwhile, keeping an
eye on dewpoint depressions and the likelihood of fog in the
northern valleys overnight. /rfox

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFs: VFR conditions will prevail overnight with mainly high
cirrus clouds. Patchy fog is possible mainly north of the KGEG-
KCOE, although there is a small chance that KSFF could experience
some local fog near the river. Anticipate clouds to increase and
lower through the day with light rain developing from west to
east between 19z-23z at the TAF sites. Some local MVFR cigs are
possible with heavier precipitation, primarily after 00z. Rain
will decrease to showers from KEAT to KMWH after 02z. /rfox
