Warmer temperatures returning

Mon., Aug. 23, 2010, 7:38 a.m.

Summer weather should return to the Inland Northwest starting today, but forecasters are warning that a new wind storm and cooler weather are possible on Thursday.

High temperatures should reach the middle 70s today with sunny skies.

Tuesday could warm into the 80s and Wednesday is likely to see highs in the lower 90s.

A low pressure area that brought clouds, wind and showers to the region on Saturday night and Sunday has exited the Inland Northwest and is being replaced by a system of strong high air pressure.

That will cause temperatures to rise to summer conditions before another low swings into the region on Thursday, carrying a chance of windy conditions. Temperatures cool to the 80s on Thursday and near 70 on Friday.

Sunday’s high was 75 at Spokane International Airport with a trace of rain reported.

At 7 a.m., it was 46 at Spokane airport, 50 at Felts Field, 52 in Coeur d’Alene, 44 in Deer Park and 46 in Pullman.
