Thunderstorms are starting to pop up across the Inland Northwest, and the National Weather Service said they may continue through this evening.

A new low pressure area brought a warm front and light showers across the region earlier today, notable for an increase in humidity.

One line of thunderstorms was seen south of Pullman this afternoon and was drifting east into Idaho.

A trailing cold front may be enough to set off more thunderstorms along with rain this evening, forecasters said.

Rain could be heavy beneath any electrical storms, which may also include small hail and gusty winds.

Spokane could see a tenth of an inch of rain in what has been a wet month so far.

Coeur d’Alene could see up to a quarter inch of rain.

The chance of showers or thunderstorms continues until about 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Highs through the rest of the week should remain mild in the low 70s with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s.

Wind gusts to 23 mph are possible on Wednesday in the wake of this evening’s cold front.
