Warm, sunny and summery weather on the way this week! -Kris

If the kids were in their classrooms this week, something tells me they would have a hard time paying attention.  At first, the warming trend will be gradual.  For Wednesday, temperatures will warm about 2 or 3 degrees from Tuesday.  Expect a high in the mid 70s with plenty of sunshine and light winds.

Thursday will be even warmer, and right now, the forecast calls for our first 80°+ day in Spokane.  As a ridge of high pressure shifts east over the region Friday, our temperatures climb even higher into the mid 80s.  The forecast gets a little tricky for the weekend.  A chance of thunderstorm develops sometime Saturday, hopefully after you’ve had a chance to enjoy some weekend fun.  Much cooler, showery weather returns to the region for Sunday, with seasonable conditions for early next week.
