Friday Morning Weather Update: T/Storms Region-Wide Expected By This Afternoon

Today: An area of low pressure sliding east across northern Oregon will push widespread scattered showers and thunderstorms into the region today. Around Spokane the morning will start off dry but by early afternoon we'll likely start seeing some showers and possibly thunderstorms. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will likely plague the entire forecast area by this afternoon. Heavy rain within these storms could lead to localized urban street flooding and ponding of water. Slow moving storms, bringing lots of rain, will again be a concern for the north Cascades where heavy rain led to mudslides and flash flooding near the Methow Valley yesterday. The flash flood watch for that area remains in place until late tonight. High: 76° (Yellow)

Flash Flood Watch: Will remain in place over the North Cascades through the day today and into tonight as slow moving storms area again expected to bring lots of rain to that area. Some of the higher terrain could see between .5-1.5" of rain by the end of the day today. The biggest concern for mudslides and flash flooding will be over the burn scar areas of the Carlton Complex Fires.

Tomorrow: The low pressure system that brings the active weather today pushes east tonight and tomorrow. That'll drag the showers with it. Saturday looks mostly dry around Spokane but rain continues for eastern parts of the Panhandle and W. Montana. Some isolated showers could develop over the southern Panhandle and parts of the Palouse by Saturday evening. High: 77° (Green)
