Even more rain and thunderstorms on Sunday- Matt
SPOKANE, Wash. If you’re reading this on Saturday evening, congrats! Enjoy some dry weather and a little bit of sun because we are not even close to done with the wet weather this weekend. Saturday evening and night is our only break from rain this weekend.
Rain will move in overnight and much like on Saturday it will be a cloudy, steady rain when we get up on Sunday. This should last until 10 or 11 depending on how far north you are. Temperatures will start off in the low 50s and rise into the mid 60s in the afternoon.
Speaking of afternoon, more thunderstorms will start to pop up around lunchtime and through the afternoon and evening. Similar to Friday, the setup favors some strong storms with torrential rain, hail, and excessive amounts of lightning.
A FLOOD WATCH is in effect for Spokane, Coeur d’Alene, and all points north to Canada in the Inland Northwest. We’ve seen a lot of rain in the past couple of days, so the ground is about as saturated as it gets. Heavy thunderstorm rains could leave some standing water behind for a longer time than usual. Be aware of possible washouts and standing water on Sunday.
If you’re not a fan of all this wet weather, it does get better soon. We’ll have some leftover showers and storms on Monday as this system pulls away. After that, the middle of the week looks dry with temperatures getting up to the 70s for several days in a row!
