Thursday Morning Weather Update: More T/Storms Firing Up This Afternoon
 
Today: Another relatively quiet start to the morning today as yesterday's storms move east into Montana...the first thing you'll notice heading out the door this morning are the cooler temperatures, dipping into the 50s. Partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies to start the day but, like yesterday, clouds start to build into the afternoon and by this evening there will be another chance for some isolated thunderstorms sliding through the metro area. Our northern counties (Okanogan, Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille, Boundary and Bonner) will see the most concentrated t/storm activity today, beginning as early as 1pm. High: 77°
 
Tomorrow: An area of low pressure will move down the Washington coastline today and start moving east along the WA/OR border by late tonight. That low will start wrapping moisture around its core as it moves east and by tomorrow afternoon it will be centered over E. Washington. Meaning, we're expecting widespread showers and thunderstorms, and much cooler temperatures. High: 75°
 
Flash Flood Watch: Will go into effect Friday afternoon over parts of Okanogan, Chelan and Douglas Counties as slow-moving thunderstorms will likely move right over the burn scarred areas from recent fires. Those slow-moving storms could dump a half inch or more of rain. That much rain in a short period of time could lead to mudslides and debris flows over those burn scars.
