Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
931 PM PST SUN JAN 25 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
Fog and low clouds will persist across portions of central
Washington and north Idaho. Record high temperatures will once
again be possible Monday across southeast Washington and the Idaho
Panhandle. A weak storm system will affect the area Tuesday and
Tuesday night bringing a small chance of precipitation to the
Cascades and cooler temperatures everywhere. A ridge of high
pressure will then rebound late in the week for drier weather and
more fog.

.DISCUSSION...
Update to expand the dense fog advisory to include some of the
valleys of the North Idaho Panhandle and some locations north of
I-90 in the Coeur d` Alene area per recent observations from area
webcams. /Pelatti

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Fog and low clouds continue to be a nuisance in the
aviation area. Locations more entrenched in the fog, which
includes KGEG, will have LIFR ceilings and visibilities to tend
with overnight and through Monday morning. Locations further south
such as KPUW and KLWS have warmer and drier air continuing to move
over them from the east and will allow VFR conditions to prevail
there. Locations not mentioned area in between with various
Ceiling and Visibility issues due to slightly different elevations
and intensities of the same low clouds and fog over their areas.
