Severe thunderstorms, large hail could impact Eastern Washington overnight Thursday

Isolated thunderstorms this evening will be strong with frequent lightning for the second straight day.

SPOKANE, Wash. — A rainy Thursday morning will mark a far colder day overall. A jet stream trough is digging into the Pacific Northwest this morning with a cold front that has already passed through the region. Morning rain is constant through eastern Washington with the heaviest falling over the Palouse. Steady rain will last through 1pm then thinning to scattered showers for the rest of the day and early evening.

While temperatures are "mild" for the morning, in the mid-50s, temps will barely budge today. It'll be in the 50s during any rainfall today. And drier areas of eastern Washington might hit low 60s this afternoon. North Idaho likely stays in the upper 50s for highs today. A far cry from hitting 90 degrees just two days ago!

Today's rainy and cooler weather will only last for a single day. Friday may be foggy during the morning with sunny skies returning along with temps in the low 70s.

The weekend and first week of October is looking warm! High temps will be 10-15 degrees above average in the upper 70s and near 80 degrees.
