Our Weather/Seasons

North Idaho is famous for her weather. Making it simple, we have (4) seasons that are fully legitimate, fall FEELS like fall, spring FEELS like spring. Here’s how they break down:

Summer for us starts sometime in June, at that time, we get what is called a “Pacific High” that sets up over our area, and keeps us in sunshine until sometime in October. Temp wise, summer will be lows in the high 50’s to low 60’s at night, daytime from 75-90, typically. Best thing is that humidity wise, it’s low, 15-25%, so you don’t sweat much.

Fall here is superb; my personal favorite. We have long indian summers most every year, the first times I ever remember it being cold are at Halloween, and even then it’s not cold every year at Halloween. We’ll start getting rains sometime in the end of October, typically, and in a normal year you won’t see snow on the ground, snow that can stay because it’s cold enough to get it TO stay, until mid December. The Ski Resorts here are all at 5-6,000 feet in elevation, so they’re a lot higher than any houses are. They all dream about opening for Thanksgiving, and I think I’ve seen them open at Thanksgiving once in 16 years.

Winter really starts in mid December, we typically get a single cold snap between mid December & New Years Day. Typical temps are nighttime lows of 26-29 degrees, and 33-39 degrees in daytime. We get our water in the form of rains & snows from late October to sometime in May. If you come from a place where it’s sunny all the time, you may not like it here, as we do have clouds & weather, but it’s mixed with brilliantly sunny days, so it’s a wash, to me. (I also like sitting in front of a warm wood stove on a cold windy day, I’m weird that way).

Spring starts to break sometime in February, mid to end of month. That’s when, to me, you can feel it, the creeks start rising, days start getting a lot longer, things in town start to show some green colors. It’s not like spring has “sprung”, but for me, I know it’s right there, and I can sense it.

Area wise, here, most all of the homes are within 1,000 feet of the valley floors, for good reason. Above that the snows are just too deep in most places. Bonners Ferry, to the North of Sandpoint, is WARMER than Sandpoint, the coldest area of North Idaho, to me, is NE of Sandpoint. Snowiest area is north of Priest River, on Hwy 57.

Elevations are 2100 or so at the valley floor in Coeur d'Alene, and just under 2,000 feet in Bonners Ferry.

We have no tornadoes, forest fires, hurricanes, tsunamis, or earthquakes. :-)
