Sun returns today with highs in 50s

A mostly sunny spring day is in store for the Inland Northwest with continued mild March temperatures prevailing regionally.

Highs should run from the lower to middle 50s across the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene areas with light winds.

Lows tonight may fall to the freezing mark.

Higher air pressure has returned to the region after two days of clouds, rain and showers. The fair weather should continue until Thursday when the next frontal boundary moves into the area.

Forecasters are calling for mountain snow showers later this week, although snow totals won’t be enough to offset the lean winter snowpack above 4,000 feet in elevation that is about half of normal in the Spokane River basin.

At 7 a.m., it was 31 at Spokane International Airport, 32 in downtown Spokane, 34 in Coeur d’Alene, 24 in Deer park and 25 in Pullman.

Normal temperatures for today in Spokane are 51 for a high and 31 for a low. The record high for today is 70 in 1939. Sunset is at 7:07 p.m. and sunrise Wednesday is 6:45 a.m.
