Late night and early morning fog that’s hovered over the Inland Northwest this week is going to make its exit today as the weather makes a change this weekend.

Visibilities were down to a quarter mile along the Spokane River this morning.

The fog is likely to lift by noon, and give way to cloudy skies and highs in the middle 40s this afternoon.

A weak storm off the Pacific Ocean is moving onshore today and is expected to bring a 50 percent chance of rain tonight and 60 percent on Saturday.

A cold front linked to the storm is predicted to cool down the weather starting on Saturday night when a chance of rain or snow comes into the forecast.

Snow showers are possible on Sunday.

Highs will go from the 40s today and Saturday to the 30s on Sunday. Temperatures are expected to plunge into the 20s for highs on Monday and Tuesday with lows near 12 in Spokane.

Lows in the 30s tonight and Saturday night should drop to the 20s by Sunday night.

The weekend cold front is going to bring a chance of sunny skies on Monday through Thursday.
