Blake Jensen: In Spokane we just missed the rainfall record for June 26th by 2 hundredths of an inch on Tuesday! That record was set back in 1952 and we had nearly 3/4" or rain.
Other areas farther to the north, like Sandpoint and Bonners Ferry had between 1-1.5" of rain yesterday, causing even more concern for rising rivers there.
Thankfully today looks to be MUCH nicer than yesterday. A short ridge of high pressure brings stabilizing conditions and warmer air.
Temps should be back in the 70s and partly cloudy/mostly sunny skies! Heads up for Hoopfest Weekend, the models starting to pick up a short wave of moisture that could push through Saturday afternoon...we'll be keeping a close eye on that for the next few days.
Today: Gradually clearing skies, calm winds and warmer temps. Partly cloudy. High 71°
Tonight: Mostly clear, calm winds. Still relatively chilly with a low of 47°
Tomorrow: Mostly sunny skies, calm winds and even warmer. High of 80°
