SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. — The end of the ski season is coming this weekend at some Spokane and North Idaho ski resorts, while others will remain open until the end of the month.
This weekend, the weather in Spokane will be cold and rainy. On Saturday, showers are expected with widespread showers on Sunday and Monday. As temperatures drop, we may see a little snow fly here in Spokane. If it does snow, temperatures have been warm recently, so it won't be a major issue and will likely melt as fast as it falls.
