Thunderstorms kick off a cooler, unsettled week of weather – Matt
SPOKANE, Wash. — After a humid Saturday and hot Sunday, some cooler temperatures will feel good for a change. They’re coming along with some more humidity and thunderstorms though, so the weather will be more up and down this week than it has recently.
As this weather system moves in tonight, thunderstorms will develop in Oregon and race across the state lines in the early to mid-morning. Look for some thunder and lightning around the Palouse and the L-C Valley before 7 a.m. You shouldn’t expect much if any rain from morning storms, but those in the afternoon could bring some beneficial moisture.
In Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, any storms that push that far north won’t show up until the tail end of the morning drive, 8 a.m. and later. While difficult weather shouldn’t hang around Spokane for too long, we may get another round around Lake Coeur d’Alene before conditions calm down in the afternoon around the I-90 corridor.
Additional storms will crop up in the northern mountains and near the Montana state line in the afternoon and early evening. Elsewhere, we’ll see the sun again but highs will only be in the upper 80s!
The rest of the week will see us have a small chance for storms each day, partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 80s and low 90s. Next weekend looks cooler and sunnier, but another heat wave is still looming in the forecast for the following week. We will just have to wait and see if that comes to fruition.
