.SYNOPSIS...
Afternoon showers and thunderstorms are expected over the
northern Cascades and Okanogan Highlands this evening. Friday
and Saturday will feature a good chance of showers and afternoon
thunderstorms for most of the Inland Northwest. Areas of showers
continue Sunday, with breezy conditions. Some mountain showers and
thunderstorm chances linger into next week, but overall the risk
is limited and drier weather will be more dominant. Expect cool
temperatures through Saturday, then gradual warming into next
week.

.DISCUSSION...
Additional evening update to remove the thunderstorm mention
but keep shower mention in for rest of tonight along with
adding a bit more cloud cover leftover from convection linger
over parts of the forecast area. /Pelatti

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Weak weather disturbances dropping down over the
aviation area from the northwest will continue to allow for
spotty showers, primarily over the Cascades into this evening.
A stronger weather disturbance will bring rain showers to
many locations as early as 12Z with scattered thunderstorms
after 18Z tomorrow. Some of the thunderstorms have potential
to put out locally heavy rainfall and thus bring about lower
ceilings and visibilities for a spell. /Pelatti
