Rain fizzling; wind moving in

SPOKANE, Wash. - Thursday morning's brief but heavy rains are fizzling from west to east as dry air pushes over the Cascades. Winds are gusting up as high pressure moves in so quickly.  Expect SW wind gusts 25-30mph through the Inland NW tonight.  A wind advisory is posted for the Kittitas Valley (Ellensburg, Thorp) for wind gusts to 50mph.  The strongest winds should be north of I-90 near the airport as well as near Rocky Canyon & Rygrass summit through 11pm.

The band of heavy rain that stalled over the region this morning brought .14" of rain near the Spokane airport, .17" CDA, .09" Pullman.  Pockets of Heavier showers measured .25"-.50 of rain from Spokane's South Hill to Colfax and Lewiston. Areas of standing water are draining as skies clear this afternoon. This powerful storm system that has haunted the western half of the country since Sunday is finally inching eastward and out of our way.

High pressure will ensure fair skies, near normal temperatures & SW winds gusting 20-30mph through Sunday for the Spokane area.  Afternoon showers are possible Saturday across the Palouse & Idaho panhandle...take an umbrella if you're heading to the scrimmage at WSU.
