The rain is coming...

Posted: Updated:

E. Wash./N. Idaho - We'll warm up 10 degrees above our average temperature of 61 degrees Sunday, as a few mid-level clouds move across the area this afternoon.

A slight jolt of warm air along this front will pump temperatures up to the low 70's in the downtown area. UV's rays will be at or near the high level through the peak part of the afternoon.

After two days with 60-degree readings and one day in the mid 70's, rain will move in signaling the beginning of change.

On Monday a series of rainshowers begins that should continue to the middle of the week.

Colder air forcing its way up on top of the warm front might drum up some thunder Monday and Tuesday afternoon. We'll keep cool through middle of the week and see a small dry period Thursday.

A chance of showers sneaks back into the forecast next Saturday, although it's too soon to tell you what time, so stay tuned.
