Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Mother Nature can't seem to make up her mind, but if you were hoping for some relief from the heat and fire danger, or your AC bill, you got it.

For the remainder of Monday we'll see partly cloudy skies, isolated rain showers and thunderstorms with a 30 percent chance of rain. Highs will hit the mid to upper 70s though 80 is normal for this time of year.

The later hours of Monday will see mostly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms in the evening, then partly cloudy overnight. Overnight lows are expected in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Tuesday will be partly sunny with a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs are expected to be much like Monday, hitting the mid 70s.

Clouds will stick around into Tuesday night with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in the evening then a slight chance of rain showers overnight. Lows, again, expected to be in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Wednesday, temperatures are expected to be a little cooler. Skies will be partly sunny and there is a slight chance of rain showers in the morning followed by a chance of rain showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs for Wednesday will only reach the upper 60s to lower 70s.

  • Fire lined vs. fire containment: What's the difference?

    Fire lined vs. fire containment: What's the difference?

    Wednesday, July 18 2018 1:48 PM EDT2018-07-18 17:48:19 GMT

    SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - We've had a lot of questions about what firefighters  are talking about when they say that the fire is 100 percent lined, but that the Upriver-Beacon fire is 0% contained. Here's the gist, according to firefighters: Containment is essentially their faith in the strength of the fire line. So when they say there is a line around 100 percent of the fire, but 0 percent containment, it means they are concerned that the fire could jump the line.
