A dense fog advisory has been lifted for Spokane and Coeur d’Alene areas this morning, but forecasters warned that patches of fog may reappear after 10 p.m. across much of the Inland Northwest.

Visibilities of a quarter mile or less were reported this morning, and fog shrouded Spokane International Airport through 10 a.m. with visibilities there ranging from an eighth mile to a quarter mile.

Fog had lift elsewhere in the region by late morning.

The forecast tonight calls for cloudy weather and a 30 percent chance of precipitation. The same risk of precipitation continues Thursday with the likelihood of valley rain and mountain snow.

Snow could fall in lower elevations during cooler hours late tonight and Thursday morning, but it is not expected to accumulate.

Precipitation amounts for the next 24 hours should be light.

Highs today are forecast to once again reach the lower 40s with lows in the lower 30s tonight.

Another chance of rain arrives on Friday and Friday night.

The weekend looks to be a mix of clouds and chances of rain.

A drying trend is expected early next week, and the sun may reappear by Monday.
