SPOKANE, Wash. — There is an end in sight, but getting there takes us through another few days of hot, dry weather across the Inland Northwest. Despite temperatures soaring to near 90 Tuesday and Wednesday, we aren't going to set any records with this round of heat.
The breezy conditions will stick around Tuesday. Widespread gusts will be between 10 and 15 miles per hour with a few locations in Central Washington seeing gusts top 25 miles per hour. That might not seem like a big deal, but as we start to dry out, days like these are when we are most prone to fire starts and spreads.
Wednesday looks calm, dry and hot before the chance of some storms returns to the forecast Thursday. Isolated in nature, the storms won't be overly widespread. We still have the chance of seeing a little activity here in eastern Washington. Friday storms will be more scattered before cooler weather trickles in, dropping highs back onto the 70s to close out the week!
