Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington
943 PM PDT Thursday may 28 2015

Synopsis...
scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue tonight and
tomorrow. Expect a warming trend into the weekend, with highs in
the 80s, with a lingering threat of mainly mountain showers and
thunderstorms. By next Monday and Tuesday the next best chance of
showers and thunderstorms arrives, with the potential for some
stronger storms and the return of cooler temperatures.

Discussion...
updates through the evening have been necessary to increase pops
and mention of thunderstorms and the heavy rain...small hail...and
gusty wind along with some flooding they have brought to the
forecast area this evening. Seems there is enough dynamic forcing
to keep some mention of convection in the form of showers and
thunderstorms in a good portion of the forecast area through the
remainder of tonight so have made that adjustment.

&&

Aviation...06z tafs: general low pressure with weak weather
disturbances moving through it keep scattered showers and
thunderstorms in the aviation area tonight and again tomorrow.
