Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
822 PM PDT MON OCT 20 2014

.SYNOPSIS...

A cold front is very slowly moving through the Inland Northwest
which will bring precipitation to much of the area and an end to
the above average temperatures. The active pattern will continue
through the weekend with the potential for heavy rain continuing
as moisture associated with former typhoons makes its way toward
the Pacific Northwest early next week.


&&

.DISCUSSION...
Increased reflectivity on radar and some brief periods of
moderate to heavy rainfall reported at observation sites
associated with the higher reflectivity necessitated another
update to grids and text products to increase the pops and qpf
associated with the wet frontal zone moving through the area
tonight. /Pelatti

&&

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Slow moving cold front spreading, thickening, and
lowering clouds from west to east right now near Moses lake and
points west. This will continue overnight and the front will exit
North Idaho tomorrow afternoon/evening. Some moderate to heavy
rain may occur along a very thin and elongated area within the
frontal band per some of the short term models which may cause
MVFR ceilings and visibilities at times. As to be expected after
rainfall there is the possibility of fog and low cloud formation
afterwards. /Pelatti
