Spokane and Coeur d’Alene remain in the fog today, according to the National Weather Service. If the fog was to clear, the area could see blue sky. But there’s no wind or warmth to move the haze out.

A dense fog advisory is in effect until noon today, according to the weather service. After noon, expect patchy fog.

The air stagnation advisory continues through 4 p.m. Sunday. Stagnant air means pollution levels increase making conditions difficult for those with respiratory conditions.

Meteorologist Greg Koch said today it looks like the air stagnation advisory may be extended into early next week. And don’t expect the fog to clear before Monday, he said. The current weather pattern will hold until at least Sunday.

In addition to the steadiness of the fog and air, temperatures will remain about the same throughout the week with highs in the 30s and lows in the upper 20s, according to the weather service.
