Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington
1027 PM PDT Monday Jul 27 2015

Synopsis....
a slow moving low will bring showers and a few thunderstorms to
the Idaho Panhandle and eastern Washington this afternoon. By mid
evening, this low pressure system will exit the region and our
chance for precipitation will come to an end for the week. Hot
and dry weather will develop by Wednesday and could linger through
the weekend and into next week.

Discussion...
updates to the forecast this evening include minor reworking of
the present weather to better address the gradual decrease of
showers in the forecast area this evening. Additionally cooled
some of the forecast temperatures a few degrees but this had
minimal impact on the zone forecast wording. /Pelatti

Aviation...
06z tafs: isolated showers lingering a bit past 6z Tuesday yet
VFR conditions prevail. Decreasing clouds cover expected through
the remainder of the night with some patchy fog and low clouds
between 9z to 15z Tuesday, and evening this fog and low clouds
will not be widespread enough to keep VFR conditions from
prevailing through 06z Wednesday. /Pelatti
