The extended stretch of dry, sunny weather shows no sign of ending, the National Weather Service said today.
Today’s high near 87 degrees in Spokane will be followed by a slight cooling trend on Thursday and Friday followed by a bit of a warm up over the weekend into early next week.
A low pressure area from northern British Columbia is going to graze northeast Washington and North Idaho on Thursday and promises to bring a dry northerly flow for a couple of days at the end of the week along with some clouds.
Then, the hot high pressure area that’s baked much of the country will re-assert its presence in the Pacific Northwest, but only marginally.
Highs could reach 89 on Saturday and 92 on Sunday with temperatures dropping only by a couple of degrees on Monday and Tuesday.
Moisture that brought thunderstorms two weeks ago is not seen as a threat so far.
Spokane is now in its 11th day without precipitation.
