Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1004 AM PDT Tue Sep 25 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
Warm daytime highs are expected through Thursday, with mostly
clear skies. A cold front moving on the region Thursday night into
Friday will bring cooler weather and perhaps some mountain
showers to the region for the weekend and into early next week.


&&

.DISCUSSION...
The eastern edge of a large ridge off the coast continues to keep
a northwest flow, generally free of significant moisture or
substantial disturbances, over Eastern Washington and North Idaho
today. KOTX 12Z morning sounding reflects this with northwest
winds depicted throughout the sounding with some moisture just
above 700mb which may show up as a little bit of middle level
cloud but not enough to really take away from the Sunny forecast
for today. A morning update was issued to remove the mention of
morning frost and fog as it is mostly gone. /Pelatti

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFS: The aviation area will be under a generally dry
northwest flow with a few high cirrus and perhaps a slight bit of
middle cloud filtering in at times. VFR conditions are expected
to prevail at all TAF sites. Some patchy fog may reform overnight
and into Wednesday morning is expected in the mountain valleys of
northeast WA and in the ID Panhandle similar to what occurred
earlier today. /Pelatti
