FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR EASTERN WASHINGTON AND NORTH IDAHO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPOKANE WA
649 AM PDT THU JUL 24 2014


.DISCUSSION...

...BREEZY CONDITIONS THROUGH THIS EVENING...

AN UPPER LOW MOVES NORTHEAST TODAY. LOOK FOR A THREAT OF SHOWERS
ACROSS THE DISTRICTS TODAY...PARTICULARLY CLOSER TO THE CANADIAN
BORDER. HOWEVER WINDS WILL BE THE MORE NOTABLE FEATURE THIS
AFTERNOON AS THE ATMOSPHERE REMAINS WELL MIXED BEHIND THE EXITING
LOW. GUSTS BETWEEN 20 TO 40 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE. HOWEVER COOL
TEMPERATURES AND RELATIVELY MOIST RELATIVE HUMIDITIES ARE EXPECTED.
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN THROUGH NEXT WEEK...WITH DRIER AND WARMER
CONDITIONS.
