SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane has officially reached the hottest part of the hot season. Before noon Wednesday, temperatures soared past the normal high of 84 degrees and you should get used to it. 

High temperatures will stay 10-15 degrees above seasonal averages for at least the next seven days, meaning temps hovering in the 90s and triple-digits for the Inland Northwest. 

Wednesday, the National Weather Service issued Spokane 100 degree facts, a temperature rare for Spokane. In fact, temperatures at or above 100 degrees have been recorded in less than half of the summers, eight out of 19, since 1990. 

Facts released by NWS

  • Hottest temperature recorded in Spokane was 108 degrees on August 4, 1961 and July 26, 1928
  • The most likely dates for 100 degree temperatures are July 22-27
  • The earliest date 100 degrees was recorded June 22, 1973
  • The latest date 100 degrees was reached August 31, 1967
  • Most number of consecutive days at or above 100 degrees: 6 days, July 23-28, 1928

Triple-digit heat is more likely in the lower valleys like Lewiston, Wenatchee and the Tri-Cities.

Wednesday, the expected high temperatures and elevations for the Inland Northwest show 91 degrees in Grangeville at 3,670',  95 degrees in Spokane at 2,376', 100 degrees in Lewiston at 730',  and 102 degrees in Pasco at 407.'
