Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
951 PM PST Thu Nov 23 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Wet and unsettled weather will linger through the week as a
series of storm systems brings several rounds of precipitation to
the region. Cooler and unsettled conditions this weekend will
result in lowering snow levels as travelers are heading home.
Windy conditions are once again possible on Sunday.


&&

.DISCUSSION...

Updated the forecast to remove any remaining mention of
precipitation with the exception of portions of the East Slopes of
the North Cascades near the crest and a small portion of the
Central Panhandle Mountains of North Idaho. Keeping a mention of
fog as weak high pressure moves into the region tonight. /Pelatti

&&

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Weak high pressure moving into the region allows for
an end of precipitation over TAF sites that should last for the
next 24 hours. Lingering abundant low level moisture may allow for
some patchy fog and low stratus overnight into tomorrow morning
that could produce IFR/MVFR conditions in the way of low ceilings
most likely at KGEG area TAF sites and KEAT. Expectation is
stratus that forms should burn off by 18Z with VFR conditions to
prevail after 00Z Saturday. /Pelatti
