SPOKANE—The National Weather Service announced there is a chance for severe weather and flooding Monday across the Inland Northwest.

Persistent moderate to heavy rainfall is expected across the Columbia Basin into the Okanogan Highlands and westward over into the east slopes of the Cascades.

The best severe weather threat will be across the Idaho Panhandle over into western Montana; although severe storms will be possible in extreme eastern Washington as well.

Severe storms will be capable of large hail, damaging winds, flash flooding and even a tornado could be possible.

The severe weather threat is expected to lesson tonight, but strong storms will continue to be a possibility through the evening hours, especially along the cold front as it moves eastward across extreme eastern Washington and the Idaho Panhandle.
