Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1104 PM PDT Wed Mar 22 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Showers and a few isolated thunderstorms will be 
possible today. A few isolated mountain showers will be possible
for Thursday, otherwise it will be dry. Then another storm system
will bring widespread rain and mountain snow Friday. Flooding 
issues will persist through much of the week in the absence of a 
prolonged period of dry weather. The weather will remain unruly
through the first part of next week as a couple more storm systems
are expected to track through the region.

.DISCUSSION...
The vorticity maximum is tracking through the area as anticipated
with the previous updated from earlier. Most organized shower
activity with the vorticity maximum has tracked across the upper
basin to just north of Spokane at 11 PM. These showers will
continue on their easterly track toward Sandpoint by around
midnight and then exit the region around 2 AM. /SVH

&&

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Scattered showers will track generally north of a line 
from KGEG to KCOE late this evening. Low stratus will remain over 
the Spokane-Coeur d'Alene corridor through the rest of tonight 
into Thursday morning. I have moderate confidence that fog will 
develop at KLWS late tonight and lingering into early Thursday 
morning and low confidence for some fog developing in KMWH. The 
atmosphere will be more stable on Thursday with dry conditions and
terminals becoming VFR by the afternoon. /SVH
