Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1042 AM PDT FRI MAY 27 2016

.SYNOPSIS...
The passage of a cold front this morning will bring cooler and
breezy conditions...which will likely last through the Memorial
Day weekend. Accompanying the front and upper low will be a chance
for showers over the Idaho Panhandle and the mountainous portions
of Washington. Look for a gradual warming trend after the Memorial
Day weekend, with temperatures rising to above normal by the
middle of next week.

.DISCUSSION...
Subtle updates for today. The cold front is pushing across extreme
eastern Washington and north Idaho this morning with light bands
of showers. Behind the front and beneath the upper level trough,
the convective temperature has been met and showers have bloomed
over the Okanogan Highlands and northeast Washington mountains. No
lightning yet, but this area seems to be the best area for
occasional lightning and heavy downpours. Expect the thunderstorm
threat to wane this evening while showers linger near the Canadian
border through the night. Gusty winds will continue through the
afternoon. /rfox.

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFS: Light showers will be moving through the KGEG-KCOE area
through 20z with the remains of the front. More showers with
embedded thunderstorms will be found over the northern mountains
from now through about 03z. This activity should stay north of the
TAF sites. Light showers will be moving east of the KLWS area by
20z and leave VFR with locally breezy conditions. Breezy winds
will prevail through afternoon and early evening. Winds will
remain elevated at about 10-15 kts with gusts 20-25 kt through
about 03Z.
