Temperatures will go to the middle 70s on Tuesday and then the lower 80s on Wednesday. By Friday, the start of autumn, the thermometer may be pushing 90.

This weekend will continue the trend with highs at or just above 90 on Saturday and Sunday.

The high on Sunday was 71 at Spokane International Airport.

Autumn starts with the fall equinox at 2:05 a.m. Friday.
