Wind gusts picking up this evening

A cold front approaching the Inland Northwest is causing wind gusts to pick up late this afternoon, but Easter Sunday is still on track to bring a mild sunny day with highs in the upper 50s.

National Weather Service forecasters said showers are possible from the approaching cold front this evening, but that dry air below the clouds will evaporate most of the moisture before it can reach the ground.

Southwest winds of 13 to 20 mph could produce gusts to 30 mph in Spokane.

Spokane International Airport reported gusts to 33 mph prior to 5 p.m.

On Sunday, winds will die back to about 10 mph.

Lows should be in the upper 30s tonight and Sunday night.

Monday should bring another warm day with a high near 70 in Spokane, but with mostly cloudy skies. The next storm is due on Monday night. Low pressure settles over the region Tuesday and Wednesday bringing a likelihood of rain showers.
