The following is the forecast discussion from the National Weather Service in Spokane for this weekend. While it is almost certain that bitter cold will make the fishing so much more interesting this weekend. Check out the possibility of heavy snow!! Cold, wind, and snow in March!!

As they say...ENJOY.

Friday through Sunday: The arrival of a strong arctic cold front
with much below normal temperatures and biting north winds by
Friday evening appears to be a near certainty now. We have talked
a great deal about lack of forecast confidence in this tricky
pattern, but we can say with a pretty high degree of confidence
that the arctic front that arrives this weekend will be one of the
coldest the region has seen this late in the season in a long
time. The huge polar low over St. James Bay will drive air from
the upper regions of north central Canada into the Upper High
Plains with enough momentum that it will cross the Continental
Divide on Friday and bleed into north Idaho and eastern Washington
Friday night into Saturday.

While brutal wind chills and cold temperatures seem to be a slam
dunk with this forecast, forecast confidence is extremely low for
snow amounts at this time. There will be a complex collision of
arctic air descending from the northeast with moisture arriving
from the south on Friday and Saturday. The timing of the Arctic
front and the strength of the push of moisture from the south will
make or break the snowfall forecast. Since these two key components
of the forecast are thousands of miles apart today (and over data
sparse regions), a high degree of model variability should be
expected. Of the morning model runs, the NAM has been the most
dire in it`s prediction of many inches of snow over eastern
Washington. The NAM is very aggressive forcing shallow arctic air
into Washington while stalling a tight mid-level front in the
vicinity of I-90. The majority of the other models including the
GFS, ECMWF and Canadian models agree that the better forcing and
moisture supply will be over Oregon, southern/central Idaho and
Montana. For now, our forecast is for relatively light snow
amounts with the most significant accumulations over the central
and southern Idaho Panhandle Friday and Saturday. This may change
given the complexities of forecasting in a split flow pattern. But
for now, the biting north winds and bitterly cold temperatures
will be the main headlines for the weekend.

Vladimir:

You trying to keep the west side guys on the west side? I do have to agree - not very appealing!

Yahoo weather paints another picture - cold in the morning but warming to 35` - I'll take that report. Snow chances seem to be lessonig too. I'm going. will be in the Lenice lot by 9:00 after stopping at Buzz Inn in E-berg. my plan is low and slow with buggers thinking the fish are still in Fall/cold water mode. May try some chiro fishing in the heat of the day. Olive Outback with boat on top.
