Fri., March 5, 2010, 7:19 a.m.

A dense fog advisory has been lifted for the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene areas, and forecasters are saying that this afternoon’s sunny weather should continue Saturday and Sunday.

Highs should reach the lower 50s in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene today with lows tonight and Saturday night near freezing. Fog is not expected overnight tonight and Saturday morning.

Sunny weather is likely on Saturday with mild temperatures in the low to middle 50s, and again on Sunday with a mix of clouds and mild temperatures.

An approaching storm is in the forecast for Sunday night along with a cooling trend, which could bring a chance or rain and snow on Sunday and Monday and a slight chance of snow Monday night.

Highs Monday and Tuesday may drop back to the middle 40s as the Pacific storm track reorients itself the flow coming from cooler ocean waters near the Gulf of Alaska toward the Inland Northwest.

At 7 a.m., freezing fog and a visibility of a quarter mile was reported at Spokane International Airport with a temperature of 28.
