Strong winds and showers move into region Sunday

It’s officially Memorial Day weekend and things are looking chilly and wet.

There were several scattered showers Saturday, but the wet weather will pick up Saturday night.

Overnight showers will move into the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area. Those showers will stick around through much of the day. There is also a chance of some thunderstorms popping up south of Spokane and Coeur d’Alene Sunday afternoon.

Windy conditions will also pick up around Sunday afternoon. A wind advisory will be in effect in Coeur d’Alene and northern Idaho from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. Winds will remain strong into the evening, then die down late Sunday night.

The good news is that the Memorial Day holiday is looking very nice. The wet weather will dry out and winds will die down. Monday will see temperatures rising, with a high of 75° and partly cloudy conditions.
