Quiet weather heading into the weekend, but snow returns Sunday

An incoming storm brings the next round of snow and rain to the Inland Northwest.

SPOKANE, Wash. — Patchy fog early Friday morning made it official. January 2022 is now the foggiest one on record for Spokane. Our calm weather remains in place as we head into the weekend. While there was a little fog Friday morning, it won't be as foggy as earlier in the week and a little sun might peek out in the afternoon. 

Temps will stay pretty seasonal both Friday and Saturday. Overnight lows will drop into the mid 20s with daytime highs climbing into the 30s each day. The little bit of sunshine should have it feeling a little warmer this time of year. 

The shift in the weather pattern arrives Sunday. The storm moving out of the Gulf of Alaska into British Columbia will bring a frontal boundary to the Inland Northwest. The predominately westerly flow means the Cascades will take a majority of the moisture, meaning the rain shadow will keep much of central Washington dry. 

Eastern Washington and North Idaho is where things pick back up. While mountains are likely to pick up a good amount of snow, it's likely we struggle to measure an inch in lower elevations. For me, that means I'm not too worried about getting out the shovel. 

Things cool down a little following the weekend storm. We could see a little more sunshine with temperatures pretty close to where they were to start this past week.
