SPOKANE, Wash. — What a difference a day makes. Following the passage of a potent cold front temperatures dove as widespread rain returned to the Inland Northwest. The arrival of the front marks a shift in the weather pattern that could be here to stay.
With another wave of energy taking aim at the Northwest, Wednesday winds up looking very similar to what we saw on Tuesday. A widespread round of showers to start the day, then scattered showers persisting through the afternoon. Temperatures will once again top out in the upper 50s for much of Eastern Washington and North Idaho, and there isn't much of a change until the weekend.
The chance of rain is a little lower Thursday through Saturday. Scattered showers and a little sun will help afternoon highs climb to near 60. But that is still almost 10 degrees below the seasonal norm. Not until early next week is there any possible relief.
A possible dry out and a few breaks in the clouds could hit Sunday and Monday. That would bump afternoon highs into the upper 60s, but the overnight lows would be a little cooler with the lack of moisture or cloud cover. If that happens, widespread 30s could enter the forecast just in time for the first week of October!
