... Air stagnation advisory remains in effect until noon PST
* air quality... poor ventilation will result in a build up of
pollutants near the surface. Mountain valleys will be
especially susceptible to stagnant air and pollution build up.
Light northeasterly winds across the Columbia Basin will also
tend to push pollutants up against the east slopes of the
northern Cascades between Thursday and Saturday. These winds
will become calm by Sunday with a greater risk of pollutant
build up over much of the region by this time.
* Timing... through Monday morning.
* Impacts... prolonged periods of stagnant air can hold fine
particulates close to the ground and degrade air quality.
An air stagnation advisory indicates that due to limited movement
of an air mass across the advisory area... pollution has the
potential to increase to dangerous levels. Persons with
respiratory illness should follow their physicians advice for
dealing with high levels of air pollution.
During periods of stagnant air... state air quality agencies
highly recommended that no outdoor burning occur and that
residential wood burning devices be limited as much as possible.
According to state air quality agencies... prolonged periods of
stagnant air can hold pollutants close to the ground... where
people live and breathe.
The high temperature at holden_village in the past 24 hours ending at 800 am

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Spokane Washington 701 PM PST Friday Nov 27 2015 Synopsis... Chilly temperatures and clear skies are expected through at least Friday as strong high pressure builds over the Pacific northwest. Light winds and a strengthening inversion will increase the potential for air stagnation this weekend. We will also have the potential for areas of fog and low clouds over the weekend into early next week. The next chance of precipitation is expected next Wednesday with the arrival of a frontal system. && Discussion... Update for this evening to cool temperatures closer to this morning's readings. Strong subsidence inversion over the region will continue to deliver mostly clear skies and light winds. 24hour changes in boundary layer moisture are very small and several locations are running slightly colder than this time last night. Republic, Washington has already cooled to 13f and the overnight low has been adjusted down to -2f. Low clouds will be the main challenge tonight. The areas that will be most susceptable will be the valleys bordering the international border, around larger lakes, and across the Lower Basin between Moses Lake and Moscow. The activity crossing the international border and around lakes has mainly been in the form of stratus and not fog with ceilings between 1600 and 2000 ft above ground level. It is less certain whether this is case just north of Pullman where low clouds continue to expand during the previous 2 hours. The location where this is forming is quite unusual but earlier satellite data indicated a boundary layer eddy near the blue mtns which has likely drifting into the Washington Palouse and could be contributing. /Sb && Aviation... 00z tafs: we're expecting a near repeat of what we had this morning for fog and/or stratus tonight...but with greater areal coverage. Fog will be potentially LIFR at times...and stratus likely IFR/MVFR. The main taf sites that will encounter these reductions in ceilings and vsbys will be klws...kmwh...and kcoe. Fog should dissipate by midday giving way to sunny skies. && Preliminary point temps/pops...
