.SYNOPSIS...
The weather will remain dry and breezy through Saturday. A weak
weather system will bring clouds to the area on Sunday, but these
should clear out of our area by early Monday morning for good
views of the eclipse. Periods of smoke and haze are expected over
the next several days along the Canadian border and in the
vicinity of active fires in Washington and Idaho. A stronger
weather system will arrive by mid-week for a chance of rain with
cooler and windy conditions.

.DISCUSSION...
Update sent to expire red flag warnings. Stiff pressure gradients
remain in place delivering cross CWA pressure gradients between
7-9 mb however a deepening marine layer west of the Cascades is
allowing an influx in moisture and RH`s have been rising steadily.
Nonetheless, winds will remain elevated through the night but the
combination of wind and low humidity will not be in place. /sb

.AVIATION...

be around 10 mph or less for most terminals by 10z. Swift
westerly flow aloft will lead to areas of orographic cirrus
along the Cascades...otherwise generally VFR skies are expected.
Winds will be lighter Saturday with occasional afternoon gusts
around 15 mph.  /sb
