Spokane temps headed in right direction

SPOKANE, Wash. - The long slow process of crawling out from under the record breaking arctic air mass continues over the Inland Northwest. Temperatures Thursday have reached above the freezing point for the first time since Sunday for extreme eastern Washington and the Idaho Panhandle.

Over the Columbia Basin and Yakima Valley the 40s have once again returned. While this weather is still below normal, temperatures are headed in the right direction. The warming and sunny weather will continue to be the rule through Friday.

Spokane will see another very chill start to the day Friday morning with temperatures in the teens to low 20s, followed by 40s to low 50s in the afternoon.

This weekend the ridge of high pressure that has brought us all of the beautiful sunshine will be flattening out as a wave of low pressure passes by to our north. The upper air flow will become strong out of the west hauling Pacific air over the Cascades and through the Columbia River Gorge into the Inland Northwest. That will continue to give a boost to the low level temperatures. At the same time a couple of waves of energy moving through will bring a few showers. The first one goes by Saturday afternoon and evening, with another on Sunday.

Snow levels will rise to 3,000 feet or more, which is above most valley locations. Highs Saturday and Sunday will range from the mid 40s near Spokane to the low to mid 50s over the Columbia Basin. Clouds and damp weather will persist into early next week with temperatures coming up a bit more. We should see 50s to near 60 degrees.
