The dry, warm summers are what attract many families to Spokane and most of those people take advantage of the many lakes that surround Spokane.
According to CustomWeather's "Top 10 Cities With the Best Summer Climate" list, Spokane ranks 2nd for 'best summer in the nation'.
To qualify for consideration, cities had to have an average high temperature between 77 and 84 degrees, humidity averaging less than 60 percent and less than an inch of rain each summer month.
The winters average just over 50 inches of snow throughout the season.
This allows many people to take advantage of the abundant winter activities such as down-hill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, ice skating, snow shoeing, and snowmobiling.
Spring is always a welcome sight with wonderful weather that Spokane uses to it's fullest with a Saint Patrick's Day Parade, Easter Egg hunts throughout the city, world famous Bloomsday Run and the Annual Lilac Festival and Parade.
Fall is beautiful with usually pleasant weather.
The tree-lined streets with their changing colors and dropping leaves are a sight everyone always looks forward to seeing.
