Wednesday's Weather Update: Stronger T-Storms Target the Northern Counties Tomorrow

Evening/Overnight: Locally, going from mostly clear today to mostly cloudy. As a minor wave approaches, thunderstorms will continue to fire up from Okanogan Highlands to the Selkirk Mountains of NE WA and N ID…A late night shower is possible from the decaying remnants of the northern storms as they drift southeastward into our area

Thursday: Mostly cloudy morning into a partly cloudy afternoon for the metro area. By late day, a vigorous disturbance dives from British Columbia into Washington and wicked thunderstorms, with heavy rain & hail are expected to erupt just north of Highway 2. This disturbance will impact the Spokane area by Friday…Low/High 56°/80°

Friday:  Could be quite rowdy & damp at times…Mostly cloudy with numerous showers, widespread thunder & lightning, and breezy winds… Low/High 54°/75°

FYI: On this date in 1910, the "Big Burn/Blowup" of North Idaho shaped U.S. firefighting policy when 75mph winds whipped flames into a frenzy. Three million forested acres were torched, 163 fatalities were recorded (including 78 firefighters), & the smoke traveled around 1/3 of the globe
