Today:
We continue to be influenced by an area of low pressure which will remain stationary over the region Thursday...that's going to make for some more active weather. Thursday morning, bands of moderate to heavy rain will be moving from south to north across the Columbia Basin with some areas seeing lightning along with the rain. So far, Spokane has escaped the showers as we're sitting right in the middle of two wet bands. After the morning wave moves through, some sun-breaks will be possible into the early afternoon. If those sun-breaks DO indeed develop, that heating could lead to pop-up afternoon t/storms capable of producing hail, lightning, gusty winds and heavy rain. Especially through the northern Panhandle. High: 80°

Flash Flood Warning: Flash Flood Warnings are in place over portions of Chelan and Douglas counties Thursday morning. Heavy rain on Wednesday night led to the concern for flash flooding. One particular area of concern will be the steep grade going down from Waterville to Orondo.

Friday: The area of low pressure that has been plaguing the region this week will move right over the top of E. Washington tomorrow, bringing us one of the cooler days we've seen in a while, with temps in the upper 70s, low 80s. It'll also bring another round of showers and thunderstorms, especially for the mountains surrounding the Columbia Basin and over the N. Panhandle.

A Look Ahead: This slow-moving area of low pressure will finally start to push east of the region on Saturday. There will still be a slight chance of some t/storms Saturday afternoon as the storm system moves out. Temperatures start to rebound by Sunday and Monday, back into the upper 80s and low 90s to start next week.
