.DISCUSSION...
Rest of today...Minor update to forecast package for the today
period to broaden out the potential fro showers and maybe a
thunderstorm over the far southeast Washington and Idaho
Panhandle zones based on satellite and radar extrapolation.
Any point south of Pullman to Avery could be subject to some very
light shower activity or a brief high based thunderstorm this
afternoon. Otherwise no significant changes expected...with one
more fairly hot and dry day before big changes tonight and
Thursday....to be refined with afternoon package. /Fugazzi

.AVIATION...

18Z TAFS: smoke from Oregon will continue to stream over Washington
and Idaho, with the highest concentrations in southern Washington.
Mid and high clouds will move in from the south and thicken through
the day. Tonight the chance for showers, with some chances of
thunderstorms, will increase over the eastern third of Washington
and north Idaho as a cold front moves through the region. /Pelatti
