Summer warmth stays around
Warm temperatures will continue across the Inland Northwest today as higher air pressure creates the right conditions for sunshine.
A high of 87 is expected in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene.
A slight cool-down is likely by Wednesday as a weak and dry frontal system passes over the region.
Highs could drop back to the upper 70s on Wednesday.
Another warm spell is expected by the end of the week and into next weekend, with highs in the middle and upper 80s.
Temperatures will be at or above normal by then.
The upper-level wind pattern is sending storms north into Canada this week.
At 7 a.m., it was 59 degrees at Spokane International Airport, 61 at Felts Field and in Coeur d’Alene, 55 in Deer Park and 50 in Pullman.
