KING 5's Lisa Van Cise said a good deal of lightning was spotted south of Federal Way early Friday. The storms then headed north.
Van Cise said she expected the storms would be confined to the first half of the day and we'll likely see sun breaks in the late afternoon. Highs on Friday in the area will run in the mid-60s to low-70s.
In Eastern Washington, there is a flash flood watch in effect through Friday afternoon due to the severe weather threat. Forecasters have said heavy rains could be accompanied by damaging winds and large hail.
Saturday's forecast shows a slight chance of showers in the morning, moving to partly sunny with highs in the low 70s.
