Good Thursday afternoon! A nice sunny and warm day expected around the Great Spokane Area today. Temperatures continue to increase today around the Inalnd Northwest with upper 80s to low 80s expected around the Inland Northwest.

There's good news and bad news. The good news is that the winds die down, boy was it gusty yesterday! The bad news is humidity drops dramatically as we go into the afternoon hours near Cle Elum and Elmer City. Look for humidity to drop to 15-30% between 12-10pm today, that means less mositure in the air and increased dry fuels.

As we go into the weekend it looks like we could see a Fire Weather Watch pop up for perfect fire conditions.
