Round 2 of strong winds to hit Inland Northwest Friday afternoon

SPOKANE, Wash. --- High winds and rain moved out of the area Friday morning, but round two is still on the way.

With a clear and breezy Friday early afternoon, the high winds are expected to pick back up in the late afternoon around 2 or 3 p.m and continue into the evening.

The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for a majority of the region until 7 p.m.

Overnight Thursday into Friday morning, the Inland Northwest saw the highest wind gusts at around 45 -50 mph. About an inch of rain fell in Spokane, while higher elevations saw somewhere between 2 and 3 inches of rain.

Why Friday weather won't be as bad as Nov. 2015 wind storm

A wind advisory goes into effect tonight and continues through tomorrow evening. Thursday night and Friday are going to be very windy. Just the mention of the word 'wind' puts a lot of us on edge that lived through the "Wind Storm" of November 2015.
