Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Washington and North Idaho
National Weather Service Spokane WA
549 AM PDT Mon Oct 23 2017


.DISCUSSION...
Expect mild and dry conditions through the week as high pressure
builds into the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures will be on the warm
side of normal. Strong morning inversions will result in chilly
valley temperatures and the chance for patchy fog. Afternoon
mixing will be poor and have short windows. A fast moving weather
system on Wednesday will bring a shot of showers and breezy winds
to the region. Conditions will then return to warm and dry the
remainder of the week.
