A Pacific cold front passing through the Inland Northwest is continuing the springtime trend of cool, blustery weather.

Southwest winds in Spokane could gust to 32 mph, but some locations in the Columbia Basin may see wind speeds to 45 mph.

Highs today should be in the lower 50s.

Most of today’s rain came before 11 a.m.

Cold air in the mountains could bring snow to Lookout Pass later today.

A dry patch behind the cold front is going to provide drier weather later today and mostly sunny weather on Tuesday with a high of about 53 in Spokane, according to the National Weather Service.

Chances of rain return again on Wednesday with evening temperatures cool enough to create snow showers. Forecasters said a shower pattern on Wednesday night into Thursday could bring brief downpours and even a chance of a thunderstorm.

Yet another Pacific storm is expected on Friday night and early Saturday, and it should bring chances of showers into Sunday with temperatures in the 50s during the day and near 40 at night. Forecasters said the latter part of the weekend should be relatively dry.

At 3 p.m., it was 52 at Spokane International Airport, 53 at Felts Field, 52 in Coeur d’Alene, 50 in Deer park and 48 in Pullman.
