Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1025 PM PDT TUE SEP 1 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
A weak slow moving cold front will bring light showers, breezy winds
and cooler temperatures to the Inland Northwest through mid week.
This cooler and showery weather pattern will linger into the
holiday weekend...especially for southeast Washington and the
Idaho Panhandle. Drier and warmer weather is expected by early
next week.


&&

.DISCUSSION...
A frontal system is starting to push across the region but so far
this evening precipitation has been limited to the Cascade crest
and any thunderstorm activity has been well to our north over BC.
As the front is dragged southeast into the forecast area later
tonight there may be some light shower activity across the
northern mountains but thunderstorms should stay to our north.
Cloud cover overnight should keep low temperatures on the mild
side with the northern valleys staying in the 40s for the most
part. /Kelch

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: The best chance for light showers will be near the
Cascade Crest and Canadian border and not at the TAF sites. May
see a little smoke near the KLWS area from area fires but
confidence is low. Westerly winds have diminished to 10 kts or
less but will increase again Wednesday morning as the front
approaches. There is a low chance of showers along the frontal
boundary as it tracks across the area Wednesday. /EK
