Hot weather poised to break Thursday heat record


With temperatures in the 90s, Spokane could see record-breaking weather this week.

“It’s hotter than we typically see in the middle of June,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Robin Fox.

The predicted high Thursday is 90 degrees, while a normal temperature for the day is 71 degrees. For June 13, the highest recorded temperature is 91 degrees in 1932.

The temperature Wednesday was 88 degrees with the record high at 95 in 1940.

Looking to the weekend, the Friday temperature is predicted to be 83 degrees. Saturday comes in at 84 degrees and Sunday at 85 degrees.

The record highs for this weekend are well in to the 90s but normally is in the mid-70s.

“We’re not quite used to 90 degree temperatures,” Fox said. “It’s really important for people that are going to be spending a lot of time outside in the sun to hydrate, take some rests and not really be outside at the peak of the day.”

For those looking to beat the heat, Spokane city pools open Monday, and passes are free to the public.

Spokane public schools also approved free bus passes for Spokane Public School students, a program that encompasses other local activities and begins Thursday.
