Cooler temps headed to Inland Northwest for holiday weekend

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - Wednesday will be hot again before a big cool down and the threat of showers heads toward the Inland Northwest way the holiday weekend approached.

Tuesday, temperatures reached the expected high of 90 degrees around 2 p.m.

Now that it's September, the average high has dropped to 78 degrees with Tuesday's record of 98 degrees set all the way back in 1888.

Only a few clouds and spotty showers are showing up over the Cascades as a weak disturbance brushes over on it's way to Canada. Most of the energy will stay in British Columbia with a few showers popping up on our side of the border, but they should stay north of Highway 2.

Labor Day is a popular time to head to the hills for camping, hiking & fishing and the best chance of showers and the coolest temperatures this weekend will be in the mountains.

The cool down starts Thursday with highs in Spokane suddenly dropping to an average 78 degrees with clouds, breezes and a slight threat of showers moving in. Friday should be quiet and mild with clouds and a high near 80 degrees. The cool down and slight threat of showers resumes for the weekend with highs in the low 70s. Labor Day will be even cooler and windy with highs in the upper 60s.

This is the first snow levels have been addressed in a while, but light snow could reach the 5,000' level along the east slopes of the north Cascades over the holiday weekend.

    OMAK, Wash. - I can picture the Austin Powers bit now.  The people of Omak looking up at the sky and seeing a giant (Fill in the blank innuendo here) just like in 1999's Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. If you're unfamiliar, I'll save you a Google search.  A simple, yet effectively funny joke.  Except the U.S. Navy doesn't see humor in the real-life version at all.
