The cooler air is now arriving in the Spokane area, complements of a push of marine air from over the North Pacific. It looks like it could be an interesting day as a very strong upper level wave of energy passes over us later this morning into the early afternoon. That is already producing a band of showers and thunderstorms from just west of Moses Lake to Ephrata, then Coulee City and on up to the Grand Coulee dam area. These showers and storms will be propagating eastward this morning, so we can be on the lookout for this stuff to be in our area late this morning, after 10am. Once all of that passes by we should see clearing again. Today's temperatures will be about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday, 80 degrees rather than 90, with the southwest breeze continuing throughout the day. The next few days will be pretty nice, mostly sunny with highs near 80 degrees and lows in the 50s. More showers and cooler air will be moving in Saturday night into Sunday, when the high temperature may not make it to 70 degrees. Fall is on the way. Weather in Minnesota and Wisconsin still is looking great through the Labor Day weekend.
Speaking of fall...the college football season kicks off tonight. WOOHOO! I will be parked in front of the tube for the Boise State-Oregon game this evening. I will be rooting on the Broncos out of respect for Larry and Darlene Moore of Boise, and due to the fact that the Oregon fans are some of the most obnoxious that I have ever come across. I have been in Autzen Stadium, I know of what I speak!
