NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPOKANE WA

.DISCUSSION...

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE FOCUSED MORE OVER THE HIGHER
TERRAIN THROUGH SATURDAY AS WEAK IMPULSES OF ENERGY PUSH IN OFF OF
THE PACIFIC. TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO BE WARMING BACK INTO THE 80S
AND LOWER 90S THROUGH THE WEEKEND. ANOTHER THREAT OF MORE
ORGANIZED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS RETURNS TO MOST DISTRICTS NEXT
MONDAY AND TUESDAY...WITH SOME STRONGER STORMS POSSIBLE. WEATHER
CONDITIONS WILL TURN COOLER AND REMAIN UNSETTLED FOR THE MIDDLE
PORTION OF NEXT WEEK.
