Cold, Dry Conditions Sticking Around the Region | Weather
We are kicking off the New Year with temperatures below freezing - what a New Years' treat!
On Tuesday, our high in Spokane was only 23 and the overnight low was just 10. Yes, that's right just 10 degrees. The average high for this time of the year is 32 so yesterday we were a whooping 9 degrees below average!
For the next few days, conditions will be dry around the region and we will also see low clouds and fog sticking around. The 20's will be our friend as we continue to see temperatures below seasonable averages! We will see highs in the 20's for the rest of the work week and lows in the teens.
Many of you are probably having cabin fever right now because you don't want to venture out in the cold. Well, I've got some (sort of) good news for you... temperatures are going to warm up and by "warming up" I mean get into the 30's this weekend and continue to warm up a few degrees each day.
We don't have any strong storm systems in the 7-day forecast but we could see some precipitation late in the weekend as a system moves through bringing with it the chance of mountain snow and a rain/snow mix for the valley.
So there you have it - not a bad looking 7-day winter forecast! It's going to cold, but it's also going to be pretty quiet on the weather front as we kick off 2013.
Happy New Year!
