NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPOKANE WA
256 PM PDT MON APR 27 2015


.DISCUSSION...

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OVER THE REGION TONIGHT BEGINS

THE CASCADES. THE RIDGE WILL RESULT IN MOSTLY DRY WEATHER AND
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES. THE COLD FRONT WILL BRING SOME SHOWER
THREAT TO THE CASCADE CREST BY TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND WINDS WILL
START TO INCREASE ACROSS THE REGION. TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY
THE COLD FRONT PASSES WITH A THREAT OF SHOWERS...BREEZY
CONDITIONS AND A RETURN TO MORE SEASONAL TEMPERATURES. A FEW
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE WITH THE COLD FRONT PASSAGE
TUESDAY NIGHT AND AGAIN TOWARD WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON WITH THE
UNSTABLE UPPER TROUGH. SOME SHOWER CHANCES LINGER AROUND THE
