FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR EASTERN WASHINGTON AND NORTH IDAHO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPOKANE WA
243 PM PDT FRI JUL 25 2014


.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD OVER THE REGION THIS WEEKEND
INTO NEXT WEEK...KEEPING THE AREA GENERALLY PRECIPITATION FREE.
A WEAKENING UPPER DISTURBANCE SKIMMING BY THE CANADIAN BORDER MAY
CONTINUE TO BRING SOME BREEZY CONDITIONS THIS EVENING...BUT SPEEDS
WILL REMAIN MUCH LESS THAN PREVIOUS DAYS. TEMPERATURES ARE TO
GRADUALLY WARM TO SEASONAL AVERAGES BY SATURDAY AND THEN ABOVE
AVERAGE GOING INTO NEXT WEEK. AFTERNOON HUMIDITIES WILL BEGIN TO
LOWER GOING INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BE DIURNAL
AND RELATIVELY LIGHT...EXCEPT FOR SOME INCREASED CASCADE GAP WINDS
DURING THE EVENING DRAINAGE. THURSDAY AND FRIDAY OF THE NEXT
WORKWEEK MAY HAVE SOME POTENTIAL FOR THUNDERSTORMS ALTHOUGH IT
LOOKS FAR FROM CERTAIN AT THIS POINT.

***************************************************************
FORECASTS FOR 20 FOOT WIND SPEEDS (VALLEYS AND RIDGE TOPS) ARE
10 MINUTE AVERAGES REFLECTING RAWS WIND.
