Gray skies linger; rain returns over weekend

National Weather Service forecasters this morning said a gray and humid day is likely in Eastern Washington and North Idaho as Thursday’s rain storm exits the area.

The atmosphere is so moist this morning from Thursday’s daylong rain that the chance of seeing the sun is unlikely until late this afternoon.

Today is going to be mostly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of showers and a high near 64.

With the damp air over the region, fog is possible tonight when the low dips to a fairly mild 48.

Rain returns to the region on Saturday after 11 a.m. and will continue off and on through Sunday afternoon.

Next week is stacking up to be pretty nice with mostly sunny skies and highs going from the upper 50s on Columbus Day to nearly 70 on Wednesday.

On Thursday, Spokane International Airport saw 0.24 inches of rain.

Felts Field had 0.39 inches through 6 p.m. The airport in Coeur d’Alene had a half inch of rain by evening.

Deer Park had one of the heaviest rain accumulations on Thursday with 0.66 inches by 6 p.m.
