This week will be half spring, half winter!
SPOKANE, Wash. — The Inland Northwest is warming up during the daytime this week, but that melting and refreezing frost could make for some treacherous commutes the next several days.
The National Weather Service (NWS) warned of freezing fog Sunday morning, and through Wednesday that will remain to be the case – with mostly dry conditions expected, highs in the upper 30s to mid-40s, but lows dipping down into the 20s. With early morning fog and freezing temperatures, roads can become bit trickier to drive on.
Thursday through Saturday, NWS warns that the unsettled weather returns – several rounds of mountain snow, rain or snow in the valleys, and generally seasonal temperatures.
What all this means is that early morning times and evenings will be quite cold and quite slick, but the first half of the week will look rather pleasant in the daytime.
NWS reports that the first sunrise earlier than 7 a.m. will be on Thursday, and Saturday’s sunset was after 5 p.m.
