Expect a stormy Sunday; Flood Watch for the rest of the weekend – Matt
Sunday will be stormy off-and-on throughout the day. Temperatures will start in the low 60s and only hit the upper 70s. Strong thunderstorms are possible north of Spokane and Coeur d’Alene on Sunday afternoon and evening. These storms could produce some gusty winds and hail. The strongest storms will show up in the early afternoon to early evening.
Another weather issue this weekend will be heavy rain and flooding. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect this weekend for Boundary, Bonner, Pend Oreille, Stevens, Ferry, Okanogan, and Chelan counties. Rain totals of over an inch are possible around these counties in a short time span thanks to thunderstorms. The 4 News Now Weather App is a great way to get weather safety alerts whether you’re sitting at home or out at the campsite.
Rain continues on Monday and high temperatures will only get up to around 70 degrees! The forecast does look to be improving though for the 4th. Rain now looks most likely in the afternoon with more scattered thunderstorms, so you will probably get a few dry hours in during the day! Most places will see any storms move out of the area by fireworks time on Monday evening. Once we’re all heading back to work on Tuesday we will see temperatures start to rise and conditions become dry and sunny again for the rest of the week.
