Wet weather still in the forecast for our area
April 6, 2018
Our one “kind of good” day of weather was Friday. Now that everyone has enjoyed that, let’s brace ourselves for more rain and cooler temperatures.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a wet storm system over the weekend, beginning Saturday, leading to saturated ground conditions with flooding concerns on small streams. The risk of mudslides and debris flows on steep terrain will also increase.

They are also reporting that isolated to scattered thunderstorms are possible Saturday afternoon, with potential in some areas for locally heavy downpours, small hail, and gusty winds.

This forecast is for portions of North Idaho, also north central Washington and northeast Washington.
Generally warmer temperatures are predicted as being on the way. The Weather Service is predicting a high temperature of 51 degrees on Sunday, 52 degrees on Monday, and as high as 58 degrees on Tuesday. Other coming temperatures: Wednesday 53, Thursday 49, and Friday 50 degrees are predicted.

Chance of rain is 20% Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, but rises to 50% on Wednesday and 60% on Thursday.
