Heating up on the court and the thermometer for Sunday – Matt


SPOKANE, Wash.– You could not have asked for better weather on Hoopfest Saturday! Sunday may even top it with more sun and warm weather, but you might feel the heat a little bit more on the court by the afternoon.

Temperatures will be cool and comfortable in the morning but will rise quickly from the 50s around 5 a.m. to the 70s when it’s time for Sunday brunch. High temperatures will range from the low 80s near the Canada border to the mid and upper 80s in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene to mid 90s in the Columbia Basin. You’ll feel that afternoon heat a little bit more, so don’t forget the extra water and sunscreen. There will be barely a cloud in the sky on Sunday! The only moisture around Hoopfest is going to be sweat.

Sunday Highs


Monday will be the hottest day this week. Spokane has a shot at 90 degrees while upper 80s will make for a toasty Monday afternoon in Coeur d’Alene. In places like Moses Lake and Ephrata down to the Tri-Cities temperatures have a good shot at hitting 100! A Heat Advisory is in place for these areas in Washington.

Heat Monday

If Monday gets on your nerves with how warm it’s going to be, the rest of the week should make you smile. We’ll cool down all the way to the mid 70s by Wednesday afternoon and won’t be close to 90 around Spokane heading into the start of July 4th weekend.

As far as chances for wet weather go, isolated thunderstorms are going to be hanging around starting Monday night and popping up at times Tuesday and Wednesday. Much of this activity will be around the Cascades and the mountains along the Canada border. Getting any decent rain is going to be a long shot for the foreseeable future.
