by outflow boundaries this evening around the Coeur D`Alene area will
gradually weaken with the loss of daytime heating. Further north
starting to see additional cells develop between Omak and Keller
as of 930 pm. Sufficient mid level moisture as well as steep mid
level lapse rates will aid in generating additional showers as
well as the potential for isolated thunderstorms for the northern
valleys and mountains tonight. The evening forecast has been
updated based on latest radar trends with no changes to the
overnight forecast.  JW
