.SYNOPSIS...
High temperatures will soar into the mid 90s to around 100
degrees again this afternoon. A Heat Advisory remains in effect
for much of central Washington through this evening. Temperatures
won't be as hot Wednesday through Friday, but will remain above
average. The arrival of a cold front over the weekend should bring
readings down close to normal.

.DISCUSSION...
Minor update made to warm up todays high temperatures. The
adjustment had no impact on most text based forecasts so those
were not updated with the change. Otherwise the forecast in place
remains the same with the expectation a marine surge will move in
this evening and increase the pressure gradient across the
cascades and allow for breezy conditions for locations within the
proximity of the East Slopes of the Cascades this evening and on
into Wednesday. /Pelatti

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFS: VFR conditions for the area through the next 24 hours.
High cirrus will exit the region this afternoon and reappear again
tomorrow as a marine surge of moisture moves in and banks up
against the west side of the Washington Cascades tonight. Drainage
winds will be a bit breezier from the northwest into KEAT late
this afternoon and evening with gusts to around 20 kts expected.
Drainage winds will remain around 10-15kts through the night and
show an increase overnight into tomorrow. /Pelatti
