Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Spokane WA
845 PM PDT SAT APR 25 2015


.SYNOPSIS...
An upper level low will weaken and move out of the Inland
Northwest Sunday. This will be followed by high pressure, with
warmer temperatures and mostly dry conditions, for the beginning
of next week. The threat for showers will increase beginning late
Tuesday, lasting through the end of next week.

&&

.Update...
Update tonight was to decrease showers across the region. As the
sun set and we lost our heat source, the showers quickly wained
across the area. There are a few locations where showers may
continue such as from Colville to Republic and across the Snake
River area in the southern Palouse. Some showers may pop up
through the night as the cool pool remains over WA and ID tonight
and conditions are unstable, but for the most part showers are
over. Earlier model of the NAM was showing the potential of a
Palouse Creeper (fog moving up the Palouse into Spokane County),
but the latest NAM has backed off on that idea, they keep the
boundary layer winds from the north a bit longer and winds will be
quite light. There could be some patches of shallow fog towards
morning from the recent showers, but the fog shouldn`t last long
and will quickly dissipate as the sun rises. Expect dry
conditions, clearing skies and warming temperatures Sunday.

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Dry with VFR conditions for at least the next 24 hours.
Where recent showers occurred may see some patchy shallow fog
around sunrise. Not confident enough to put cigs in any TAFS, but
the best potential is for KGEG, KSFF and KPUW and outlying areas.
