VIDEO: More thunderstorm chances for Inland Northwest

Monsoon rains and thunderstorms are still proving persistent this morning. A storm north of Priest Lake was a severe thunderstorm warned at 4:30 a.m. and lightning was visible from the Spokane area. While this storm is gone, places around Wenatchee and to the north are still under risk of thunderstorms and dry lightning until around noon today – to coincide with a red flag warning for this region.

We’re not done with the thunderstorms yet, another batch of isolated thunderstorms are expected to develop after around 6-7pm tonight in southeast Washington or north-central Idaho. Thunderstorms may again produce frequent hail and lightning. The Storm Prediction Center places this region at marginal risk of severe weather for the second day in a row.

Friday’s weather will be warm, with temperatures returning to the upper mid-90s with mostly sunny skies. But the weekend will be comfortable. Highs in the upper 80s will be very nice.

Next week, the heat is soaring. Temperatures are forecast to be in the mid-100s by midweek, with Wednesday and Thursday looking to be the hottest days in the long-range forecast phase.
