More warm days headed to region
Higher air pressure is moving back into the region today with a few more warm days expected before autumn rains resume early next week.
The National Weather Service is predicting highs of 68 in Spokane today; the middle 70s on Thursday and 80 on Friday in Spokane. Skies will be sunny to mostly sunny.
An autumn chill led to frost in outlying locations this morning, and the cool air across the region may also cause fog to form in lower valleys.
The 7 a.m. temperature at Spokane International Airport was 40, but only 33 at Deer Park.
The first in a series of weather disturbances should arrive on Friday night and bring a slight chance of showers. Highs will be about 75 on Saturday.
Another possible shot of moisture enters the region on Saturday night and Sunday. The Pacific air will cool things down to the upper 60s on Sunday.
The chance of precipitation rises again on Monday night and Tuesday as a low pressure area in the Pacific and Gulf of Alaska moves closer to the Inland Northwest.
