SPOKANE, Wash. -- Hundreds of lightning strikes started Monday morning with a bang.  KREM 2’s Katie Boer saw approximately 850 strikes an hour around 3 a.m.  She said that is the second most she has ever seen on the radar.

The storms should taper off as the day continues.  Most storms are in the Northeast Mountains of Washington, North Idaho, and in Nez Perce and Asotin counties.  There is a slight chance as these storms shift from northeast to east it could clip Spokane.

Most storms should ease up by noon.  Be sure to watch KREM 2 News at Noon for the latest forecast.  Be sure to send your storm pictures to pics@krem.com.
