Good morning! Waking up to mostly dry, cool conditions across the Inland NW this morning. As we roll through this afternoon look for increasing potential for widespread moderate snow across the region. Several inches in accumulation is expected.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until Thursday afternoon. Spokane, Cd'A, and the Upper Columbia Basin could see 3-5" of snow. The Moses Lake area could see 1-2", and the Central Panhandle 3-7" possible, with lower amounts expected in the valleys, closer to 7" in the mountains.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect through Thursday for portions of Okanogan, the NE Mountains and the North Idaho Panhandle--most mountain areas looking at anywhere from 1-2+ feet of snow possible.

After Wednesday/Thursday, I think slightly drier conditions are likely for Friday.

Thursday looks to be snowy as well.
