I think I can, I think I can…

Good evening, Netizens...

We might actually have a light show in the skies over Spokane yet tonight.

Once again it appears, despite the television weather announcers whooping it up that a severe thunderstorm warning is in effect, most of the significant hail and lightning has hit to the north and west of Spokane, although I have heard from folks in Wilbur that they just had a gusty dust storm followed by intensive lightning and some hail.

Meanwhile to the north and east, the severe thunderstorm cell that just smacked Deer Park and parts east now appears to be about to graze eastern edges of the Spokane Valley and near the Idaho State Line.

If you are in those areas, you might want to move your car into a safe area, as there are already reports of windshield damage from hail embedded in this cell.
