I think you’ll LOVE the Valentine’s Day forecast, but there’s a big storm moving in for the weekend – Kris

We are already drying out in Spokane after a cold front moved through the region Thursday evening bringing a band of light rain showers.  Clouds and breezy conditions will linger through Friday morning, but then the sun breaks out for a beautiful Valentine’s Day!  Got a hot date with your Valentine for Friday night?  No problem!  It should be dry and mild with light winds.
