Sun to stay through the weekend
The Inland Northwest has broken out of a long string of cool, wet spring weather with a sunny forecast from today through at least Sunday.
The National Weather Service is calling for temperatures in the upper 60s today and lower 70s on Tuesday before a cold front brings cooler temperatures at mid-week, but no threat of showers. Highs on Wednesday could drop to the lower 60s and then the upper 50s on Thursday with the Thursday and Friday morning lows plunging dangerously close to the freezing mark at about 34 degrees in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene.
Another warm up is likely starting Friday through Sunday. Forecasters said computer models are showing strong agreement on the trend of sunny weather.
Higher air pressure along the West Coast is bringing the fair weather and causing the atmosphere to dry out from the rainy pattern of recent months. The cold front expected on Wednesday is not likely to produce more than a few clouds, forecasters said.
Flood waters across the region are subsiding. A flood warning on the St. Joe River at St. Maries was set to expire this evening.
