Weather InformationSpokane experiences four distinct seasons. The most favorable time to visit is in the summer and fall, when the weather is pleasant and dry. Summers are warm, with very little rainfall and temperatures in the 80s and 90s. Fall brings cooler weather, with temperatures in the 60s and 70s, and the leaves start changing. Winters can be chilly, with temperatures in the 20s and snow, particularly in the mountains. Spring stays fairly cool until July 4, with temperatures in the 40s and 50s.
Crowd InformationThe busiest time to visit is in the summer, when the skies are clear and activities are plentiful. Festivals and events also tend to attract large crowds, including GameFest Spokane in April, Bloomsday and Spokane Lilac Festival in May, and Hoopfest in June.
Closure InformationMost hotels, shops, and attractions remain open year-round. However, visitors are advised to avoid driving across the pass in the Cascade Mountains in the winter, as it often closes due to heavy storms.
When to SaveHotels tend to be most expensive June through September when demand is highest due to conferences, and least expensive January through February.
When to BookLast-minute accommodations are available year-round, though itâ€™s wise to book at least ten months in advance for major events such as Bloomsday and Hoopfest. Last-minute flights are available to Seattle-Tacoma Airport, but book three weeks in advance to ensure availability.
