Scattered showers continue overnight

By The Spokesman-Review

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook, warning that the valleys north of Spokane and portions of north Idaho may hit freezing temperatures overnight.

For the remainder of Labor Day expect cloudy skies and a 40 percent chance of scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms.

According to the National Weather Service, showers and thunderstorms will continue to spread east across the Upper Columbia Basin, near Ritzville and through the central Idaho Panhandle. Some downpours may be heavy enough to reduce visibility and increase the risk of hydroplaning for drivers tonight. The heavier showers and storms are expected to hit southern Spokane County and the Spangle-Rockford area, before moving out over lake Coeur d’Alene.

Overnight temperatures in Spokane will be in the upper 30s to mid-40s.

Tuesday, expect daytime temperatures in the low 70s with light wind in the morning.
