We wont' be breaking any records, but hot temperatures will continue into the start of the week.  Afternoon highs around ten degrees above normal mean temperatures once again warming into the mid-80s and lower 90s across the Inland Northwest.

There is a slight chance for a passing shower Monday afternoon in the Spokane/Coeur d'Alene area, but most of the shower activity should remain in the mountains of northeastern Washington and the northern Panhandle of Idaho. Outside of some isolated showers, skies will be partly cloudy on Monday and mostly sunny on Tuesday.

Fire weather concerns arise for Tuesday and Wednesday as breezy conditions develop across the area.  Low relative humidities and gusty winds could result in Red Flag Warnings being issued for those days.

What follows will be a big drop in temperatures, as an upper level low pressure system, currently out in the Gulf of Alaska, makes its way into the region.  Afternoon high temperatures may drop as much as 20 degrees by Thursday, which means highs only in the mid 60s in Spokane.  There is also a chance we could see some much needed rain on Thursday.
