The up-and-down weather this summer is about to turn up again.

A warming trend kicks in today with a return to highs in the 80s, and the trend is likely to continue well into next week, forecasters said this morning.

Sunny skies are predicted through at least Wednesday.

For today, the National Weather Service is calling for a high of 82 in Spokane with only light winds.

Temperatures warm by about two degrees each day through Sunday and then level off in the upper 80s on Sunday through Tuesday.

Higher air pressure has moved into the region, and the polar storm track has retreated into central British Columbia.

A weak weather disturbance is expected to move across the ridge of high pressure on Sunday, but that will likely only bring some clouds over the northern portions of the region and maybe some breezes.

Lows will be in the middle and upper 50s through the period.

At 7 a.m., it was 56 at Spokane International Airport, 57 at Felts Field, 55 in Coeur d’Alene, 53 in Deer Park and 52 in Pullman.
