Inland Northwest gets break from rain today
Sun showing at daybreak today should lead to dry conditions across the Inland Northwest, although temperatures will have a March bite until afternoon.
Highs are expected to reach the upper 40s to lower 50s with light east wind.
Clouds should be on the increase later today, but any new rainfall should be light and is not likely until late tonight into the early hours Thursday, forecasters said.
Lows tonight should stay above freezing at around 35. Snow is possible north of Spokane late tonight and into the early morning Thursday.
The forecast for Thursday through Sunday calls for a parade of weak wet systems.
Rain and rain showers are likely each day through Tuesday with highs mostly in the lower 50s and lows in the middle 30s.
The chances of showers each day is set at between 30 and 50 percent.
A broad low pressure area in the North Pacific is guiding a series of storm impulses into the West Coast.
A low pressure area today is sending moisture into Northern California and Oregon. Its effects may be felt in the Inland Northwest on Thursday.
At 7 a.m., it was 29 at Spokane International Airport, 30 at Felts Field
