The messy weather continues for the Inland Northwest! Residents will see rain or snow, depending on where they live into the overnight hours and Wednesday morning.
We are expecting more snow for the higher elevation areas and northern valleys of the Inland Northwest, while Spokane and Coeur d'Alene are projected to get more rain that will then turn to snow.
A winter storm warning in in effect for most of the northern portion of the viewing area - including North Idaho and Western Montana - through Wednesday morning.
Northern valleys still getting snow today. Mountains up to 12" of snow by Wednesday AM. Light snow overnight in Spokane. Then a big freeze. pic.twitter.com/y1Ler2pB1u— Tom Sherry (@KREMTomSherry) December 19, 2017
Overnight Tuesday, we will likely see some snow in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene metro areas, moving into the morning. By 11 a.m. things should start to move out and then by Wednesday evening, the system will have moved on and temperatures are expected to drop significantly. Friday into the weekend, it should be very cold, with highs currently projected at just 20 degrees with overnight lows into the single digits.
Valleys are predicted to see between 4 and 7 inches, while places about 3,000 feet elevation might get up to a foot!
