SPOKANE, Wash.--More snow and rain can only help after a dry January in Spokane. There were about three inches of snow in the KREM 2 News parking lot on Wednesday morning.

KREM 2 News Chief Meteorologists Tom Sherry said three inches of snow is just a dusting compared to what Spokane should have had in January.

Some people in Spokane said they were surprised to wake up to a blanket of white Wednesday morning.

The winter snowfall total is usually about 33 inches by the end of January. For January 2014, that snowfall was only about 13 inches.

It would take about 20 more inches in three days to catch up with the normal snowfall.

February historically only brings an average of 6.8 inches of snow.
