Is La Nina officially over?

After the coolest spring season on record in Coeur d’Alene and other parts of the Inland Northwest, we finally had our first 80-degree day as the mercury hit 81 degrees on June 22. The last time we topped 80 degrees was on Sept. 9, 2021, with a high of 84 degrees. Highs slipped back into the 70s before rebounding back into the 80s over the weekend. Our weather pattern is changing, so it’s going to start feeling more like summer.
