Keep your umbrella handy!

Widespread rain showers and gusty winds are in the forecast for Thursday as a warm front stalls over the Inland Northwest.  Temperatures remain in the mid 50's with overnight lows in the mid to upper 40's.

We catch a brief break on Friday behind a cold front. And then our next round of wide spread rain and wind moves in just to put a damper any outdoor plans you may have for Saturday and Saturday night.  

Might be a good weekend to catch a movie!
