Tuesday Night Weather Update: Isolated Showers and Thunderstorms
 
Tonight~ Chance for rain and thunderstorms, 85° tomorrow.
 
Satellite & Radar:In the next 24 hours, we are going to see showers and thunderstorms throughout the area. This system is going to bring heavy rain...especially where the Carlton Complex fire is burning. This sounds wonderful and will probably help the fires, but the heavy rain could bring flash flooding to the area that was just burned. So, we could see more damage with flooding and debris flows.
 
Flash Flood Watch~Slopes of the Cascades, Okanogan Valley and in the Wenatchee Area.
 
Red Flag Warning: is now in place across the lower Columbia Basin until 11pm on Wednesday. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible in that area today AND tomorrow. Lightning strikes and gusty outflow winds are the biggest concerns.
 
7-Day Forecast: Thursday looks like we could see some morning showers, but you weekend looks heavenly!! 80s and sunny both Saturday and Sunday. Than things really warm up during the week...highs in the 90s!
