Good Wednesday morning!

An active start to the mid week with overnight thunderstorms lingering into our early morning hours across Eastern WA and North ID today.

This morning: We have a great deal of wild fire concern with widespread scattered lightning to that things off. Dry fueld and warm temps mean any fire could quickly spread out of hand. Temps. out the door in the low to mid 60s.

Look for a clearing towards the late morning, most of our activity tapers off and we'll see partly to mostly sunny skies this afternoon. Daytime highs climb to the upper 80s.

Look for thunderstorm warning and red flag warnings for fire danger early, but most warning expire toward the afternoon with much calmer conditions late in the week.
