One more day of summer-like weather will remain over the Inland Northwest, but a new low pressure system is threatening showers and cooler temperatures starting Tuesday.
Today’s high should reach about 85 degrees in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene.
A low pressure center off the Pacific coast continues to circulate warm and moist air northward. On Tuesday, the low moves closer to the Inland Northwest, increasing the risk of thunderstorms to 50 percent after 11 a.m.
Temperatures cool to the lower 80s on Tuesday and then to the middle 70s on Wednesday and then upper 60s on Thursday.
Another warm spell is expected by the weekend with highs by Sunday reaching the middle 80s.
At 7 a.m., it was 62 at Spokane International Airport, 65 at Felts Field and 63 in Coeur d’Alene.
