Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
806 PM PST SUN JAN 25 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
Fog and low clouds will persist across portions of central
Washington and north Idaho. Record high temperatures will once
again be possible Monday across southeast Washington and the Idaho
Panhandle. A weak storm system will affect the area Tuesday and
Tuesday night bringing a small chance of precipitation to the
Cascades and cooler temperatures everywhere. A ridge of high
pressure will then rebound late in the week for drier weather and
more fog.

.DISCUSSION...
Update to expand the dense fog advisory to include some of the
valleys of the North Idaho Panhandle and some locations north of
I-90 in the Coeur d` Alene area per recent observations from area
webcams. /Pelatti

.AVIATION...
00Z TAFS: VFR conditions expected at all eastern TAF sites with
the exception of some patchy fog between 06Z to 16Z for the
Spokane area. The main concern will be the stratus and fog banked
into the Basin and Wenatchee area creating LIFR conditions or
worse. They may improve to IFR conditions aft 20Z. There still
are pockets of LIFR vsbys generally north of Spokane where
snowmelt from warm temps has significantly contributed to the fog
threat. This includes the Deer Park airport. /JDC
