Cloudy skies to give way to rain Tuesday
Fog and drizzle this morning has changed over to dry but cloudy conditions this afternoon as the Inland Northwest waits for its next rain storm on Tuesday.
Highs are expected to reach the upper 40s.
The National Weather Service is calling for a 30 percent chance of rain tonight to be followed by a 90 percent chance of rain on Tuesday.
