Earlier reports from our KHQ Weather Authority Center:

Strong, gusty winds are the big weather story for Monday &  Tuesday. Winds are already blowing 20-30mph. A strong cold front will push through Monday with rainy & windy conditions during the morning hours. Behind the front, rain will end, skies will partially clear & winds will gust even stronger during the afternoon. SW winds will steadily blow 20-30mph with gusts up to 50-60mph. Winds of this strength can cause damage to trees & property, downed power lines and blowing dust. Blowing dust is most likely near any freshly plowed fields, over the Palouse & western plains and can reduce visibility quickly for drivers. Winds will begin to decrease after sunset (8pm). The HIGH WIND WARNING is posted for much of the area until 11pm

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
