AFTER A RECORD BREAKING HOT JUNE...THE FIRST 10 DAYS OF JULY BROUGHT
MORE OF THE SAME ACROSS HOT TEMPERATURES ACROSS NORTHEAST WASHINGTON
AND THE NORTH IDAHO PANHANDLE.  TEMPERATURES FOR THE FIRST 10 DAYS
WERE CONSISTENTLY BETWEEN 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL WITH HIGH
TEMPERATURES IN THE 90S.  THE STREAK OF HEAT FINALLY CAME TO AN END
ON THE 11TH AS HIGH PRESSURE BROKE DOWN.  SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
RESULTED WITH A HIGH OF ONLY 74 IN SPOKANE.  A COCORAHS OBSERVER 15
MILES NORTH OF DAVENPORT PICKED UP 1.34 INCHES.  THE SPOKANE AND
COEUR D`ALENE AREAS PICKED UP AROUND A QUARTER INCH OF RAIN. THE
12TH THROUGH THE 24TH BROUGHT UNEVENTFUL WEATHER EXCEPT ON THE 20TH
WHERE A WEATHER SYSTEM CLIPPING THE CANADIAN BORDER BROUGHT ABUNDANT
LIGHTNING NORTH OF A LINE FROM COLVILLE TO PRIEST LAKE BETWEEN 6 AM
AND 9 AM WHICH STARTED SEVERAL SMALL FIRES.  A COOLER AND SHOWERY
WEATHER PATTERN CAME IN FROM THE 25TH THROUGH THE 27TH BEFORE A
RETURN TO TYPICAL LATE JULY CONDITIONS TO FINISH OUT THE MONTH.

ONE RECORD WAS SET DURING THE MONTH AT THE SPOKANE AIRPORT.  A LOW
TEMPERATURE OF 71 DEGREES ON THE 5TH SET A RECORD FOR THE WARMEST
LOW TEMPERATURE FOR THE DATE.
