The string of 80-degree-plus days continues across the Inland Northwest today with sunshine and highs in the lower 80s.

A weak storm moving across British Columbia into western Montana may clip areas along the Canadian border today and bring a chance of showers or thunderstorms.

The rest of the region should see highs a couple of degrees cooler because of the system moving in from the north.

Sunday’s high at Spokane International Airport was 83.

The rest of the week should continue to be sunny with warm temperatures in the 80s to about 90 on Wednesday and then cooling back to the middle 80s through the weekend.

The normal high for today is 83 and the normal low is 55. The region is moving into its warmest period of the year based on temperature averages.

Weak weather disturbances may bring some clouds Tuesday night through Wednesday night.

Winds are expected to remain light.

At 7 a.m., it was 56 at Spokane airport, 62 at Felts Field, 59 in Coeur d’Alene and 57 at Deer Park and Pullman.
