Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Washington and North Idaho
National Weather Service Spokane WA
249 PM PDT Mon Jul 24 2017


.DISCUSSION...

A dry pattern will continue through the week with temperatures
slightly above normal. A small chance of thunderstorms is forecast
for late Wednesday and Thursday over far SE Washington into the
Idaho Panhandle. The dry air mass will promote poor humidity
recoveries on the mid slopes and ridge tops...as well as the lower
elevations of North Central Washington at times. Winds will be
terrain driven...and generally 10 mph or less through
Thursday...before a slight increase occurs late Thursday into
Friday as a weak dry front passes through the region.

***************************************************************
Forecasts for 20 foot wind speeds (valleys and ridge tops) are
10 minute averages reflecting RAWS wind.
