Synopsis.... 
hot and dry weather will be featured for the Independence day 
weekend. Saturday night into Sunday winds will shift to the north 
and increase as a front sags in from Canada. Aside from isolated 
shower chances toward the Idaho Panhandle, conditions looking dry 
and warm into the first half of next week. A slight chance of 
showers and thunderstorms returns late next week.

Discussion... 


Tonight through saturday: the inland northwest will be in a west to 
northwest flow through the middle of next week. This will be 
accompanied by the occasional shortwave passage with breezy to 
windy conditions and minor shower chances. Toward later next week 
low pressure off the California coast begins to shift inland, 
bringing the potential for more scattered showers and 
thunderstorms. As a whole the pattern remains dry, with moderating 
but still above normal temperatures. 


Between tonight and Sunday night the first shortwave crosses the 
inland northwest. That feature was dropping across British Columbia this afternoon and 
it'll usher the cold front across the Canadian border this 
evening. This will lead to strengthening northerly winds through 
the evening into Sunday. Just in time to heighten the concern 
around the Fourth of July evening, speeds will be or rise into in 
the breezy category. Directions turn north-northwest over much of 
the region Saturday night, before they gradually shift north- 
northeast into Sunday. We will continue to see some channeling and 
higher winds down the Okanogan Valley and out through the Purcell 
Trench. Speeds then begin to subside Sunday afternoon and 
especially Sunday night. 


There is a marginal increase in layer moisture and instability 
along the front and just ahead of the mid-level shortwave, 
especially toward the Idaho/Montana border. Look for a band of clouds to 
drop by Saturday evening into Sunday morning, with slight 
shower/thunderstorm chances along the Idaho/Montana border. For Sunday 
afternoon shower and thunderstorm chances will continue across 
portions of the lower Panhandle, including southeast Shoshone 
County and possibly toward the Camas Prairie. However in that 
latter region confidence is very low. In general, however, a 
reinforcing shot of drier air starts to spread down from Canada 
overnight into Sunday just on the heels of the mid-level 
shortwave. So most of the region will stay precipitation-free. 


Between Monday night and Tuesday night the second substantial 
shortwave drops through. This system carries slightly more 
moisture and instability and overall has a better threat of 
showers and thunderstorms. Some clouds increase Monday night, 
with the threat for a few showers nudging toward the northern 
Panhandle. The better chances develop across the northern 
mountains through northern Panhandle going into Tuesday 
afternoon, before waning through the evening and overnight. 


From Wednesday to Saturday the pattern begins to evolve a bit, 
with low pressure off the California coast migrates inland through the end 
of the week. Some instability wraps around the mountains, while 
the deeper Columbia Basin remains relatively stable. Where models 
disagree is over whether how much energy coming around that 
incoming low drifts north into our region to bring at least an 
isolated shower and thunderstorm threat. Through Thursday most 
models keep the threat south of the region of just into our 
blues/Camas Prairie. The GFS brings chances into the Cascades by 
Thursday, but for now this seems an outlier. By next Friday into 
Saturday better chances come to the southeast Washington and the lower 
Panhandle and move up along the Idaho/Montana border, with a few solutions 
wrapping some threat back across the northern Washington mountains. 
Overall look for an increasing threat going into the end of next 
week. /J. Cote'

Aviation... 
00z tafs: a cold front sags in this evening, with a few more 
middle clouds. A more notable feature will be strengthening winds 
at some taf sites, especially away from puw/lws. The first 
increase is expected this evening, followed by a second surge late 
Saturday night/Sunday morning. Speeds near 15 to 25kts with gusts 
toward 30 to 35kts will be possible, especially toward Coe and mwh 
with that second surge. Winds are expected to slowly decrease 
later in the day Sunday, but gusts toward 20 to 25kts will be 
possible even after 18-20z. Expect some elevated layers of smoke from 
regional wildfires. All taf sites will be dry and VFR. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
red flag warnings continue for portions of the central and 
northeast Washington through early to mid Sunday afternoon. A dry 
cold front is projected to drop southward from Canada between 
6 to 10 PM tonight, which will increase winds and gusts across 
the region. The biggest concern remains gusts of 30 to 40 mph 
and a fair amount dry air coming behind the frontal passage, 
especially at around 850mb (or 4000 feet). Poor recoveries are 
expected in the mountains and potentially the valleys should this 
drier air mix in. We should rise above the critical relative humidity thresholds 
briefly near 5 am but drop again. The strength of the sustained 
winds is expected to wane after about 20-22z (1 to 3 pm). General 
winds improve into the remainder of the week, but rhs values 
remain low through, with continued above normal temperatures. 


There will be slight thunderstorm chances around Tuesday in the 
northern mountains and a broader, but still slight, shower and 
thunderstorm threat arrives toward the end of next week as low 
pressure off the California coast starts to move inland. /J. Cote'
