Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Air Quality Alert  Statement as of 10:50 am PDT on August 28, 2015


... Air quality alert in effect until further notice...

An air quality alert has been issued by the following agencies:

Washington department of ecology in Spokane
Idaho department of environmental quality in Lewiston
Washington department of ecology in Yakima
Idaho department of environmental quality in Coeur D'Alene
Nez Perce tribe
Colville confederated tribes
Spokane tribe
kalispel Indian community
Coeur D'Alene tribe
Spokane regional clean air agency
Kootenai tribe of Idaho

Elevated concentrations of wildfire smoke from area fires
continues across eastern Washington and north Idaho. Additionally,
blowing dust is expected over much of the area on Saturday. All
areas east of the Cascades and into north Idaho can continue to
expect poor air quality into the weekend. There may be times and
locations where the air quality improves to the good category, but
this is not expected to persist.

Precautions to be taken for areas experiencing increased smoke and
reduced air quality include:

*everyone should avoid heavy work or exercise outdoors when the
air quality index reaches unhealthy levels.

*Older adults, small children, and those with respiratory
conditions or heart disease may be more sensitive to poor air
quality and should stay indoors and avoid heavy work when air
quality reaches unhealthy levels.

*Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated helps dilute phlegm in
the respiratory tract, making it easier to cough out smoke
particles. Plan on coughing; it is nature's way of clearing your
lungs. Avoid caffeine products, sugary drinks and alcohol because
they have dehydrating effects.

*Stay cool when the weather is warm. Run your air conditioner to
recirculate air. Turn The Fan blower on manually so it
continuously filters the air in your home.

*If working outside, use a dust mask... n95 or n100. If a dusk mask
is not available, cover your nose and mouth with a damp
handkerchief.

This air quality alert will be reevaluated by Monday at noon.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
528 PM PDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
look for the wind to decrease early this evening as our fast 
moving cold front moves out of the inland northwest. A vigorous 
upper level disturbance will bring the inland northwest some much 
needed rain on Sunday. Area wildfires will have a good chance of a 
tenth to a quarter inch of rain. A cool and moist weather pattern 
is expected much of next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
made a few updates to the forecast. Big story - winds are 
subsiding. Visibilities have improved across the Columbia Basin 
with no new Road closures or incidents. So have allowed the dust 
Storm Warning to end and put a Wind Advisory in its place through 
7 PM. Also took down wind advisories from the northeast Washington 
mountains...Okanogan Highlands and much of north Idaho as the 
showers have tempered the winds a bit. Remaining areas will 
continue to see the winds and the Wind Advisory remains. Gradients 
and winds will continue to relax during the next few hours. 
Likewise, the red flag warning in north Idaho was canceled early 
as winds have decreased and humidities have risen. /Rfox. 


&& 


Aviation... 
00z tafs: strong west or southwest wind gusts are starting to 
diminish as the cold front moves east to Montana. A line of 
showers associated with the front has cleared some of the smoke 
out of the area. Showers will continue to track east across north 
Idaho this evening. Still expect some local reductions in 
visibility in blowing dust through about 02z but this should 
dissipate as gusty winds lessen after sunset. The upper level 
trough will slide over the region tonight into Sunday with 
scattered showers possible along with isolated afternoon 
thunderstorms. All taf sites will likely be affected by -shra at 
some point with the most likely time period between 14z- 20z with 
the passage of the cold pool aloft. Confidence is low that any taf 
site will see thunderstorms but the more favorable site is kcoe 
after 18z Sunday. Smoke may again affect the region if area 
wildfire flare up again but confidence remains low on timing and 
location of smoke plumes. /Ek
