Fog, cold air inversion persist over region

Fog and stagnant air flow will persist through the weekend and into next week in the Inland Northwest. Some light snow fell early this morning in some areas, including Liberty Lake. Forecasters also see some colder weather in the days ahead. Here’s the rundown: Today: Areas of fog. Otherwise, partly sunny, with a high near 29 in Spokane, 35 in Coeur d’Alene. Tonight’s low will be in the mid-20s. Saturday: Pretty much a repeat of today, but a bit colder at night: low around 23. Sunday: Morning fog, with a high near 38. Sunday night low around 18 in Spokane, 21 in Coeur d’Alene. Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 33 and a low around 21. A cold air inversion over the Pacific Northwest is causing air to stagnate over the region, making air pollution levels to be an ongoing concern. National Weather Service forecasters say a weather change is not likely until next week. An air stagnation advisory extends to 4 p.m. Monday, and wood burning bans and limits continue to be in place.
