Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1050 AM PDT THU JUL 24 2014

.SYNOPSIS...Lingering showers will continue for the northern
mountains today as a cold front exits the region. Cool and breezy
weather is expected today behind the cold front. Temperatures will
rebound by the weekend and be accompanied by dry conditions. Hot
weather will return to the area on Sunday and early next week.

.DISCUSSION...
Small update today to reduce pops in the Okanogan Valley and East
Slopes. The main precipitation threat for the remainder of today
will be along and ahead of a meridional band of showers currently
extending from Republic to Grand Coulee tied to a theta-e axis
wrapping around the backside of yesterday`s low pressure system.
Precipitation with this activity will generally be light with
rainfall amounts ranging between a trace to 0.01" in the Basin to
up to 0.06" in the northern mountains. The main story for today
will be the cooler temperatures and windy conditions. We are
already seeing breezy conditions region-wide with gusts 25-35 mph
and this will be in place through early evening. Clearing skies
and lighter winds overnight will deliver a cool night for the
Inland NW with sheltered northern valleys likely to dip into the
40`s while the Basin cools into the 50`s.

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFS: An exiting low pressure system will bring some
cloudiness...more wdsprd across the north...and a threat of a
few light showers across NE WA and Nrn ID through 00z. Winds will
be the main aviation impact. Local wind gusts between 25 to 35 mph
will be possible this afternoon and early evening, focused
especially from 18-02Z. /sb
