SPOKANE, Wash. - Scattered showers and a chance of thunderstorms are expected across the Inland Northwest today in the wake of Wednesday's heavy rainfall that included several incidents of severe weather, according to the National Weather Service.

Funnel clouds - the precursor to tornadoes - were reported at two locations in Lincoln County on Wednesday evening. One was spotted 16 miles northwest of Odessa at 7 p.m.; the other was seen 8 miles north of Davenport at 8:30 p.m. Both reports were relayed to the weather service by law enforcement agencies.

A funnel cloud becomes a tornado when it touches ground.

In addition, a thunderstorm blew off a roof near Chattaroy, and hail and heavy rain fell in north Spokane County about 9:30 p.m.

Obama budget includes money for Wash. doppler

President Barack Obama's proposed 2010 budget includes $7 million for a Doppler weather radar system to improve forecasting of storms approaching Washington state.

Sen. Maria Cantwell said Thursday the new weather system would expand coverage of storms up to about 102 miles off Washington's coast.

The Washington Democratic senator says she'll push for the money so residents and businesses have better information about storms that could hit the state.
