.SYNOPSIS...
Today will be another warm day with the threat for showers and
thunderstorms expanding east toward the Idaho Panhandle. Several
rounds of showers and storms will be possible across the region
tonight and into Thursday. Some storms will be capable of heavy
rainfall...hail...and gusty winds. Improving but breezy conditions
will begin on Friday, lasting through the weekend.

.DISCUSSION...
A second morning update to increase pops slightly to better
address the elevated convective showers that are moving north at
20 mph thorugh Eastern Oregon and up over Eastern Washington and
North Idaho today. /Pelatti

&&

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFS: A south to north flow of moisture will allow for
showers and thunderstorms to move up from south to north
with a storm motion of 30 mph and bring MVFR ceilings and
visibilities to the aviation area. Currently some light
elevated convective showers are moving north at 30 mph
through the aviation area but those should diminish
during the day. The expectation is more thunderstorms will develop
and primarily in the time interval between 23Z Wednesday through
12Z Thursday. Heavy rain, small hail, and gusty wind will be the
primary nuisance associated with these thunderstorms. /Pelatti
