Light showers or sprinkles still remain a possibility throughout Wednesday, but otherwise expect overcast skies in general. Wind will be the biggest concern with gusts in the 25-35 mph range.

Thursday will be quite a bit sunnier. But temps remain cool, mid 70s and winds gusting up to 25mph.

Friday a bit cooler, still mid 70s and not as windy.

The warm up begins over the weekend as Saturday stays pleasant in the low 80s, and Sunday a lot warmer with highs in the upper 80s. Most, if not every day, next week will see highs in the 90s. Models are as warm as 95° on certain days for Spokane with low 100s possible in central Washington.

Keep in mind that hot, dry, and windy weather is the recipe for elevated fire danger, so keep burning to a minimum especially on days that are windy.
