Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1035 PM PDT Thu Jul 27 2017

the middle of next week.

.DISCUSSION...
Evening update: The weather is quiet at this hour. Skies are, for
the large part, clear. Satellite shows just a few around the
periphery of the forecast area. However there will still be the
potential for a few clouds to slip in later overnight into Friday
as a bit of moisture spreads up from just off the Oregon coast and
interacts with some shortwave energy coming onshore... but right
now the emphasis is on "few". Model still support some slight
thunderstorm chances in the far southeast CWA Friday afternoon.
The winds are starting to come down, except toward the Cascades
where they remain a bit breezy. These should abate into the
morning hours. The forecast in general looks on track. /J. Cote`

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: A cold front exits east in the westerly flow, while a
a couple weak disturbance ride in from the west. However these are
expected to bring little more than a few clouds, with a slight
threat of -tsra toward the Blue Mountains and Camas Prairie mainly
south of the TAF sites. Winds near the EAT will decrease through
the night, joining the remainder of the TAF sites in largely
lighter diurnally driven winds. Wildfire smoke will linger, yet
the main threat will be toward the northern valleys. /J. Cote`
