Today brings a break in the series of storms that has kept the Inland Northwest cool and blustery so far this spring.

But it won’t last long.

The National Weather Service is calling for increasing clouds tonight after a mostly sunny day today and a high of 56 in Spokane and 55 in Coeur d’Alene.

There is a 60 percent chance of rain or snow with any snow falling during morning hours on Wednesday. The snow level should rise to 3,500 feet later on Wednesday.

The chance of rain and snow showers continues through Thursday with a series of storm impulses expected later in the week.

Friday and Saturday also have the potential to produce some wet weather.

Temperatures are also cooling back to early spring levels some with highs falling to the upper 40s and lower 50s later this week.

At 7 a.m., it was 29 at Spokane International Airport, 31 at Felts Field, 32 in Coeur d’Alene, 25 in Deer Park and 30 in Pullman.
