The Inland Northwest gets a break today and tonight from the onslaught of March storms that have brought more than an inch of precipitation so far this month.

Spokane International Airport reported a half inch of rain on Thursday, bringing the season total to 9.38 inches of precipitation since Oct. 1. That is more than 3 inches above normal. Also, the airport clocked a wind gust of 40 mph during Thursday’s storm.

The National Weather Service is calling for partly sunny skies and a high near 46 today. Tonight’s low should be near freezing.

More rain is expected on Saturday and Sunday with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.

The wet weather should continue through most of next week.

At 3 p.m., it was 44 at Spokane International Airport, 46 in downtown Spokane, 43 in Coeur d’Alene and Deer Park and 41 in Pullman.
