A third round of strong winds will hit the Inland Northwest over the weekend.

Rain showers will increase through Friday night, then taper off Saturday morning. An active weather pattern means more rain is expected, starting picking up again midday Saturday and continuing through the night.

The predicted rain has led to flood watches across northeastern Washington and the Idaho Panhandle through Saturday.

Winds will be around 5-15 mph on Saturday, increasing that night up to somewhere between 35 and 40 mph.

Another wave of moisture will move in on Sunday with rain showers, increasing again that night. Wind will continue to be gusty Sunday, up to 35 mph along with the wet weather.

Looking ahead, forecasters predict even more wet weather, with occasional rain Monday and Tuesday.
