.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure continues over the Inland Northwest through Tuesday
with another very warm day. There is a small chance of
thunderstorms in the higher elevations, otherwise expect dry
weather. This warm spell will contribute to rises on rivers from
the Cascades into north Idaho. A strong cold front will arrive
Tuesday night with strong gusty winds and a good chance of
showers and thunderstorms. By Wednesday and for the rest of the
week, expect seasonal temperatures, breezy winds and a chance of
showers and thunderstorms in the higher terrain.

.DISCUSSION...
The rest of tonight will remain dry with much of the region
remaining under clear skies. Decaying thunderstorms over north-
central OR will spread high clouds over the far western basin and
into the east slopes of the northern Cascades. /SVH

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: High cirrus will spread north into the region due to
decaying thunderstorms activity over north-central OR. Much of
this cloud cover tonight will remain west of a line from KPSC to
KOMK. A cold front will then push into the region Tuesday
evening. The atmosphere will be hot, dry and unstable ahead of the
front. Convection is expected to develop over the higher terrain
in northern OR for Tuesday afternoon with the possibility of this
convection moving north into eastern WA by the late afternoon to
early evening. There will be the potential for strong downdraft
winds with these thunderstorms. /SVH
