.SYNOPSIS...
The arrival of a cold front tonight will bring cooler and breezy
conditions for the Memorial Day weekend, along with a good chance
for showers over the Idaho Panhandle and the mountainous portions
of Washington. Look for a gradual warming trend after the Memorial
Day weekend, with temperatures rising to above normal by the
middle of next week.

.DISCUSSION...
Evening update: a cold front is making its push east of the
Cascades and a swath of clouds and spotty showers are found along
and ahead of it. These remain most across the Okanogan Highlands,
but some trail southwest toward Douglas/Grant/Lincoln count
border. There are some weak echoes attempting to get going ahead
of it.  Still I made minor adjustments to sky cover and PoPs.
There remains a risk of some isolated showers coming across the
easter third of WA and north ID. What is coming through however
is not apt to amount to much outside of the mountains. /J. Cote`

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: A cold front will move into eastern WA/north ID overnight
into Friday morning with another round of clouds and maybe some
isolated showers over the central and eastern TAF sites. Brief
MVFR cigs are possible, between 09-16Z. However VFR conditions are
expected to dominate. Clouds should begin to thin around EAT
tonight. Wind will slacken slightly early tonight but will pick
up with the cold front Friday around 12-16Z. Winds then abate and
clouds will thin Friday afternoon and evening. /J. Cote`
