Thunderstorms, rising temps and possibly 70 degrees?

Saturday offers another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms across the Inland Northwest before warmer weather moves in.

SPOKANE, Wash. — A storm sliding out of Canada, over the Cascades, and through Washington into Idaho brings our next chance of showers and a few rumbles of thunder for Saturday. Temps will top out in the low 60s.

As the storm moves out, a ridging pattern builds Sunday! The exclamation point comes from what that pattern means for our temperatures and potential sunshine. 

Mostly sunny skies and temperatures knocking on the door of 70 degrees is what you can expect for Sunday. Even as a few clouds build back in throughout Monday, temps will stay in the mid to upper 60s. 

Unfortunately, the next shot at a 70-degree high doesn't arrive until Wednesday or Thursday. So if we don't do it Sunday, you only have to wat a few more days. 

We have now set the record for the longest sub-70 stretch, 227 days as of today. By Sunday we surpass the standing record of May 21 as the latest date for that first high temp. At least we get to add this cool spring to the record books!
