Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1030 PM PDT SUN AUG 30 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
Showers, thunderstorms and breezy winds will diminish through the
evening hours as a vigorous upper level weather system exits the
region. A cool, occasionally breezy and showery weather pattern is
expected much of next week.


&&

.DISCUSSION...
Showers and isolated thunderstorms have ended over eastern WA and
north ID this evening as the upper trough and associated cold pool
aloft have moved off into Montana. The exception is the area
right along the Cascade crest where moist upslope flow will keep
precipitation going tonight. Some minor changes were made to the
current forecast package but the main purpose of this update is to
remove the thunderstorm wording from the zones. The next system
upstream evident on satellite water vapor imagery this evening
will bring cool conditions and a chance of more showers to the
northern tier Monday. /Kelch

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Showers have ended across eastern WA and north ID this
evening but precipitation will continue for the Cascade crest
tonight. Low level moisture from recent rainfall and light
upslope flow may allow MVFR ceilings in low stratus to form
between around 11Z to 15Z...affecting KGEG/KSFF/KCOE but
confidence is only fair. The next weather system will bring
showers along the International border Monday but the TAF sites
should remain dry. Winds may become gusty during the afternoon
hours but will diminish again after sunset. /EK
