SPOKANE, Wash. — There is active fall-like weather in place for the Inland Northwest through Wednesday.
Large dips in the polar jet stream over the Pacific Northwest will keep temperatures below average and push a number of showers and storms through in the coming days. The day-by-day breakdown looks like this...
Tuesday - Showers for the remainder of the afternoon and evening, with Spokane expecting showers after 5 p.m. or so. Winds gusting between 20 to 30 mph out of the south.
Wednesday - Scattered showers throughout the day. Thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon hours. All of the Inland Northwest is under the thunderstorm chance, but the number of thunderstorms will be limited overall. The storms will not be severe, but will contain heavy rain and a chance for minor flooding.
The Pullman flooding last week is a great example of what can happen. an inch of rain in less than an hour on top of a city would prompt a Flood Advisory.
Aside from the localized downpours, rain totals will be about one-fourth inch, give-or-take.
Additionally, temperatures stay about 10 degrees below normal, in the low- to mid-60s Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.
Looking to enjoy the fall temperatures without the rain? Thursday will start to clear up and Friday is safe to say will be dry with highs in the upper 60s to around 70.
