Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
907 PM PDT SUN AUG 31 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
Labor Day will bring dry conditions with temperatures slightly
below average. The arrival of a cold front Tuesday afternoon will
bring a return of breezy conditions and below average temperatures
for Wednesday, along with some threat of showers and
thunderstorms. A warming and drying trend is expected Thursday
into next weekend.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Update: An upper level jet will gradually lift northeast of the
region by Monday morning which will put the Inland Northwest on
the warmer and more stable side of the jet. Still a few showers
remaining this evening around Bonners Ferry but with the jet
lifting north and drier air aloft moving in these should end by
Monday morning. Minor update made to sky cover and POP`s based off
latest satellite and radar trends.  JW

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: A few light showers will linger tonight north of the
TAF sites around Bonners Ferry. There has been a concern for
stratus to redevelop tonight around KSFF/KCOE however dew points
are running around 6 degrees lower at Spokane and Coeur D`Alene
compared to this time yesterday. Also NAM model shows a drier
boundary layer tonight and thus a MVFR stratus deck does not
appear likely for any of the TAF sites. Up near the Canadian
border around Sandpoint and Bonners Ferry a bit more low level
moisture exists where a MVFR stratus deck is possible Monday
morning. JW
