Storms systems are lined up to continue to impact the Pacific Northwest.  Gusty winds in excess of 30+ mph will be likely across Western OR/WA on Saturday with gusts over 50+ mph in spots as the first front moves through.  Due to the position of the upper level dynamics, this front could harbor thunderstorms as well, moving in from southwest to northeast(northward) across the more populated major cities in the area.  Spokane you’ll get gusty west winds with each of these events so you are included.

The next system system hits on Sunday, 24 hours after the first.  This brings heavy rain and mountain snow to the region along with gusty winds.  Portland areas will see a consistent string of flooding rains then through Monday as the atmospheric river aims that area.

The third system hits on Tuesday, affecting the entire area with flooding rains, thunderstorms,  damaging winds, and heavy mountain snow.  This is a 1,2,3 punch type system
