Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1024 PM PDT Mon Jul 24 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
The upcoming week will be quiet and warm, except for a slight
chance of mountain thunderstorms in Idaho Wednesday and Thursday
afternoon. Locally breezy conditions are possible each afternoon
and evening, especially near the Cascades.



&&

.DISCUSSION...
Evening update: the weather remains relatively quiet. The main
trouble of the night has been how much of the shield of middle to
high clouds coming from the convection to south expands into our
CWA, which necessiated a couple updates through this evening. It
has come up toward the southern Spokane/C`dA area but should
spread east and thin through night. I made minor adjustments to
overnight lows. I also increased winds a bit down the Okanogan
Valley through the night. /J. Cote`

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: A dry west/northwest flow will dominate the weather
over the next 24hrs. This is expected to hold the main shower
threat south of the region, over Oregon and central and southern
Idaho. Transient middle to high clouds tonight are expected to
thin into Tuesday. Expect primarily lighter winds, except near
KOMK where some channeling in the north-south gradient will bring
some locally breezy conditions. Some drainage winds may also spill
across the KCOE area toward morning, with brief winds near
10-15kts. Smoke from regional wildfires may occasional drift
around some airports but the main threat will be in the northern
valleys, north of the main TAF sites. /J. Cote`
