SPOKANE, Wash.-- It has been 28 days and counting since the last time Spokane saw rain.

The area could go the entire month of July without seeing rain.

July was drier than normal. As the Storm Tracker 2 Team continues to report, July is typically a dry month.

However, not this dry. The Inland Northwest usually sees some rain by the end of the month.

Usually, Spokane gets 0.55" by now, historically. A little more than half an inch.

This year? Zip, zilch, nada. No rain.

Whether people love it, or hate it, the heat continues! Temperatures were hotter than normal.

Current dry streak: 28 days

June 28th-July 26th, 2017

Record dry streak: 73 days

Ended 09/05/1917

However, Spokane is not close to breaking a record for longest number of consecutive days without rain.

The extended outlook does call for continued dry weather and continued hot weather.

Temperatures will be in the 90s for the rest of this week, the weekend ahead, and even hotter next week.

Stay cool and hydrated friends!
