Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1048 AM PDT Thu Oct 19 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
The forecast will remain wet and breezy at times today into
Friday as a low pressure system slowly sags through the region.
There will be a brief break in the precipitation Friday evening,
but that will be short lived as another warm...wet...and windy
weather system arrives on Saturday. Drier conditions are expected
for much of next week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Quick update was done to adjust temperatures for today. Given the
extensive cloud cover do not think we will warm up as much as
previously thought. Have lowered many locations anywhere from 2-6
degrees (and for some locations, that may not have been enough).
Many spots may be at their high right now with temps remaining
nearly stationary through the late morning and early afternoon
before the cold front moves through later this afternoon and
evening. /Nisbet

.AVIATION...

18Z TAFS: A cold front will sweep through the forecast area this
afternoon and early evening. Precipitation will increase in both
chance and intensity after about 20-22z as the front moves off
the Cascades and to the east. Precipitation may become moderate
for short periods this evening and overnight for the eastern TAF
locations, but expect conditons to remain VFR. Decreased winds for
this aftn and evening and show wind increasing after the front.
