Luck of the Irish? Sun keeps shining

Tuesday’s 64 sets a new seasonal high

After Spokane reached a season-high 64 degrees on Tuesday afternoon, forecasters are calling for cooling back to the lower 50s, although mostly sunny skies should continue through the weekend. A cold front passed across the region overnight and left some showers, but skies this morning broke clear and relatively mild with Spokane International Airport reporting 37 degrees at 7 a.m. A more northerly air flow is expected for the rest of the week, along with seasonal temperatures. Highs should be near 50 and lows in the 20s. Mostly sunny skies are a good bet. A bit of a warm up comes this weekend when highs go to near 60 on Saturday and Sunday. Spring begins on Saturday with the vernal equinox at 10:32 a.m. After warmer-than-normal months in January and February, March has continued the string coming in at 2.4 degrees above normal so far. December was the only colder-than-normal month during the outgoing winter at 2.8 degrees below normal and shot of arctic air that sent the seasonal low to 1 degree on Dec. 8. By comparison, January’s coldest low was 16 on the 7th and 8th of the month.
