Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Washington and North Idaho
National Weather Service Spokane WA
414 AM PDT Tue Jun 27 2017


.DISCUSSION...

An influx of cooler and drier air today will drop humidities back
into the teens and lower 20s accompanied by temperatures into the
80s. Much of Central WA will experience north to northwest winds
through Wednesday with occasional gusts near 25 mph. Southwest
winds will be more common over the eastern districts this
afternoon becoming northwest on Wednesday. A two-day warm up is
expected Friday and Saturday with highs in the upper 80s to mid
90s. A weak cold front on Saturday will likely push temperatures
back down closer to average and bring locally gusty winds for the
Cascade Gaps and Western Columbia Basin.
