Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
821 PM PDT Sun Apr 22 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
Dry weather is expected much of this week, with our warmest
weather of the spring season thus far. By Thursday and Friday,
some of our lowland areas will have a shot of reaching 80 degrees
or more. Changes are possible by the weekend, with a threat of
showers returning to the region as well as cooler temperatures.

.DISCUSSION...
Evening update: The loss of daytime heating is resulting in a
dissipation of the flat cumulus this evening with drier air aloft
moving in as well. Skies are expected to remain generally clear
for the rest of tonight except for lingering partly cloudy skies
in the Idaho Panhandle. Made some minor adjustments to the sky
cover forecast for tonight based on current satellite trends. The
clear skies and light winds combined with a dry atmosphere will
promote efficient radiational cooling tonight with lows mostly in
the upper 20s to mid 30s.  JW

.AVIATION...
00Z TAFS: Mid and high clouds will continue through 03Z with
winds below 10 kts and VFR conditions. High pressure builds in
overnight bringing clear skies. Another round of high clouds for
the region around 12Z and clearing around 20Z. VFR conditions are
expected for the region. /JDC
