... Air stagnation advisory remains in effect until noon PST
Friday...

* air quality... light winds and stable conditions will increase
the potential for build up of pollutants near the surface.

* Timing... high pressure will persist through Friday morning.

* Impacts... prolonged periods of stagnant air can lock fine
particulate matter close to the ground and degrade air quality.

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.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
955 PM PST Wednesday Dec 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
a more active weather pattern will continue through the end of the 
week with periods of light snow in the mountains...and rain or 
snow in the valleys. Lower elevations from Interstate 90 south 
will see mainly rain...while areas in the Cascades and near the 
Canadian border will remain mainly snow. A much stronger weather 
system over the weekend will usher in warmer temperatures with 
sharply rising snow levels...as well as the potential for windy 
conditions. 




&& 


Discussion... 
another round of light precipitation is increasing across the 
eastern half of the forecast area late this evening. A mix of rain 
and snow can be expected between 2,000 and 2,300 feet across the 
northeast mtns and in the northern Panhandle. Around an inch of 
snow is expected at lower elevations above 2,500 feet and up 
around 2 inches for the mountains across this area. Snow levels 
will be a bit higher at around 3,000 feet in the central Panhandle 
mtns. The main impact for snow across these areas will be for 
travelers over Lookout Pass with 1-2 inches of snow possible. 
Temperatures will hover around freezing for these areas through 
Thursday evening with a slick morning commute possible. /Svh 




&& 


Aviation... 
06z tafs: a weak weather disturbance will generate light rain at 
the klws, kpuw, kgeg, ksff and kcoe taf sites through early 
Thursday morning. Cigs will deteriorate at most taf locations 
through Thursday morning with MVFR conditions expected at keat, 
kmwh, kgeg, ksff and kcoe. Drier easterly winds at kpuw and klws 
are expected to keep these locations at vfr; however, confidence 
of VFR conditions persisting at kpuw through Thursday morning is 
low. Improving cigs is expected southeast to northwest across the 
basin for Thursday afternoon as the next Pacific storm system 
approaches and the easterly pressure gradient strengthens. /Svh
