.SYNOPSIS...
Expect cool, breezy, and showery weather this week. The most
widespread precipitation will likely occur Tuesday night into
Wednesday with the potential for a half inch or more of rain over
portions of the Idaho Panhandle and southeast Washington. A ridge
of high pressure next weekend has the potential to bring the
region a day or two of drier weather.

.DISCUSSION...
Another update this morning to further lower forecast high
temperatures for today as persistent showers and accompanying
cloudiness inhibit daytime heating. /Pelatti

&&

.AVIATION...

18Z TAFS: A low pressure area keeps an unstable airmass over the
aviation area for a good portion of this time interval. A surface
low passes near the southern portion of the aviation area allowing
for KPUW and KLWS to have more wet and cloud weather linger there
for a longer spell. A somewhat drier northwest flow follows
Tuesday morning in the wake of the earlier mentioned surface low
passage and allows for locations north of KPUW to have potential
drier weather while locations down in the southeast near KLWS are
likely to hang on to continued showery weather. /Pelatti
