SPOKANE, Wash. — Did you wake up in the dark this morning? Maybe you found your trash can down the block? You’re not alone. Winds ripped through Washington and Idaho overnight.
According to the National Weather Service, the Coeur d’Alene Airport hit gusts at 43 mph, while the Spokane Intl. Airport hit almost 50 mph! Power outages and wildfires were reported across both states. Don’t worry, all this has subsided. We have some brighter days ahead.
On Monday, we’ll hit 61 degrees by 4 p.m., which is our high for the day. The sun will stick around for quite some time. Winds will be coming from the northeast at five to eight mph. Thankfully, winds will remain calm overnight. Temperatures will be in the mid 30s.
Tuesday and Wednesday will also be sunny, and temperatures will start to climb just a bit. By Wednesday, we’ll hit 70 degrees. The first half of the week is a good time to get your car washed. However, there’s a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Thursday so don’t wait until Wednesday to get your car washed.
After Wednesday, temperatures will start to hover in the 60s. We’ll take a slight break from the rain on Friday, which is a good time to reseed your yard. There’s a 20% chance of rain on both Saturday and Sunday. While temperatures will start to cool down during the day, overnight lows will start to rise into the 40s.
