Soggy President’s Day weekend expected

Soggy conditions are forecasted for the Spokane area throughout the long President’s Day weekend, with rain or snow predicted every day through next week.

Daytime temperatures over the next seven days are predicted to top out near 40 degrees, but sunshine will be scarce as a cold front moves through the region next week and temperatures drop slightly, increasing the chance of snow.

New precipitation will add to an already wet and snowy February following a relatively dry January. More than eight inches of snow have fallen at Spokane International Airport already this month, well above the monthly average of half a foot. Last month, just seven inches of snow fell, more than half of it during a late January storm. Spokane usually sees close to a foot of snow during the first month of the year, according to the National Weather Service.

Overnight snow is possible in the region Saturday night into Sunday, but little or no accumulation is expected.

Rain is likely on President’s Day, forecasters say. Temperatures will top out around 41 degrees.
