Weather report: Heat will return after weekend

The next few days are going to bring a transition from the severe weather that arrived over the Inland Northwest on Wednesday to hot summer weather again by Sunday.

The low pressure area responsible for the storms is moving off to the east today, but its impact should still be felt.

A cold front that triggered the storms has ushered in much cooler air. Spokane should see a high in the low 70s today while Coeur d’Alene may only get to 67 degrees.

The chance of showers today is 20 percent in Spokane, 30 percent in Coeur d’Alene and 40 percent in Sandpoint.

The Inland Northwest is expected to see some clouds as well as breezy to windy conditions. The winds that started overnight will continue through today.

Sustained southwest winds of 14 to 22 mph and gusts to 31 mph are forecast for Spokane.

In Coeur d’Alene, the southwest winds will be 11 to 20 mph with gusts to 29 mph.

Sandpoint will also see wind along the lake today with gusts to 24 mph.

Temperatures are expected to rebound to the middle and upper 70s tomorrow, middle 80s on Saturday and lower 90s on Sunday.

The Sandpoint area will generally be a few degrees cooler.

Rain showers may linger near the Canadian border into tomorrow.

Winds should be subsiding tomorrow.

Another round of highs above 90 degrees is in the forecast for early next week.

Lows will generally be in the 50s through Saturday night before returning to the 60s early next week.
