Tonight: Cloudy skies, breezy winds and scattered showers, as the first in a series of storms moves through the Pacific NW. Tonight's storm will pale in comparison to what is on the way for the remainder of the weekend. 45°  (YELLOW)
 
Saturday/Sunday: A much stronger storm moves through the area...this system will  bring wide spread rain to much of the Pacific NW.... several inches of rain will likely fall across the Cascades and wet heavy snow is expected in the mountains above 6000ft.  In addition to a lot of rain and Mt. snow, we will see winds that will gust upwards of 45 to 50 mph. The National Weather Service has issued a *Wind Advisory* from 2pm Saturday through 2am Sunday for much of the upper & lower Columbia Basin, as well as South Spokane and the Spokane area.  A *Flood Watch* is also in place through late Sunday night for the Idaho Panhandle and the Cascades...small stream flooding and mud slides will be a concern with up to 4" of rain possible in the Cascades and 2" possible in N. Idaho. (Saturday 60°/49°) (Sunday 59°/47°) (YELLOW...Possible RED for certain zones).
 
Have a safe and dry weekend~
