We kick off our Wednesday with rain showers and a breeze. There are some spots that are seeing more moderate showers and a higher chance of thunderstorms. Those trouble spots look to be high elevations closer to the international border and south of Spokane around the Palouse and farther west toward Tri-Cities.
Temperatures for Wednesday will struggle to make it into the 60s. Afternoon highs are trending about 10 to 15 degrees below average. Instead of mid 70 degree highs around Spokane, upper 50s and low 60s will be dominant.
There's promising news though as we inch toward the weekend. Temperatures are slowly warming back up to the upper 60s with partly cloudy skies. By the beginning of next week periods of drier weather are expected with highs in the low 70s.
The official start of the fall season is on Monday, September 23.
