Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1024 AM PDT SUN APR 19 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
Warm, dry weather is expected through Tuesday. Temperatures are
expected more than ten degrees above average. The arrival of a
cold front as early as Tuesday night will bring the first threat
for showers and cooler temperatures. After this, a number of
waves track across the Inland Northwest through at least Sunday.
With all of these, the heaviest amounts of rain will fall across
North Idaho, with snow levels high enough to not pose a threat to
any regional passes. Isolated thunder also is possible with each
of these waves.


&&

.DISCUSSION...
Rest of today...benign and mild conditions with generally sunny
skies are expected today with high pressure continuing to build
into the region with a generally northerly gradient pushing some
dry continental air in from Canada...mainly manifested as locally breezy
conditions down the northern mountain gaps. No updates to
inherited forecast are anticipated.


&&

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFS: High pressure building into the region will result in
VFR conditions. Winds will remain weak and some passing high
cirrus can be expected to drop south into the region out of BC.
