Sunny summer, colder winter. Expect snow in winter.

Spokane's climate is mild during summer when temperatures tend to be in the 60's average and very cold during winter when temperatures tend to be in the 20's.

The warmest month of the year is August with an average maximum temperature of 82.60 degrees Fahrenheit, while the coldest month of the year is December with an average minimum temperature of 21.60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Temperature variations between night and day tend to be moderate during summer with a difference that can reach 28 degrees Fahrenheit, and fairly limited during winter with an average difference of 12 degrees Fahrenheit.

The annual average precipitation at Spokane is 16.67 Inches. Rainfall in is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year. The wettest month of the year is December with an average rainfall of 2.25 Inches.

Anything else?

I'm a Spokane native. The info from NWbyNW is accurate and complete, but different areas of Spokane experience different weather especially snow. For example, the Spokane Valley has less snow and slightly milder temps. If you go north to the Wandermere area and Colbert, you will see quite a bit more snow than the rest of Spokane area. Overall, that is great info though. Hope that helps. Have a great day.

According to the NOAA Spokane has over 200 days of sunshine. But who would believe all that science crap when there are personal ancedotes on this website that you can multiple by 300,000 and get an accurate view of the weather?

The summers are warm and dry and very comfortable. Spring's are amazing especially if we had a rough winter. Fall is gorgeous with the leaves and crisp air during the day. The winters are difficult for some people with little actual wintery experience, however people from the midwest love our "little snow flurries" we get all winter. It's all in the eye of the beholder. What makes Spokane difficult during the winter is how the city responds to snow. They suck, end of story.

Most on this website will give you the stink about it. I've lived in quite a few places and enjoy Spokane weather the best.

Keep this in mind:

The sky is grey. It rains very lightly at night. I haven't seen sunshine in two months. I have only been here since September. I guess this is normal.

are you really in Spokane WDWREX? I have been wearing my sunglasses off and on all winter. The glare of the sun off the snow will blind you if you don't have sunglasses handy. Today was gorgeous! Yesterday was grey and lightly rainy and the daytime temps are up in the 40's now. When they were in the 20's and 30's we had some snow. aplcr0331 described it pretty perfectly.

I am really in Spokane. Off of Ruby. I don't know where the poster is from, but I am from Riverside, CA. From my perspective I can only describe the weather as grey.

2 months? Wow! Are you a night shift worker? I agree with Wendyk. We have had abundant sunshine the last few weeks. Grey days too, all Winter long, but to say no sunshine in 2 months is just a lie. I am from Orange, California and have lived in Spokane for three years now.

Well I guess perspective on weather can vary from person to person.
