Winter Storm Warning canceled for Spokane area, snow showers Thursday

After a major snow storm Wednesday, a few extra snow showers Thursday are still likely. But the worst of the conditions are behind us.

SPOKANE, Wash. — The latest on the winter storm that hit the area Wednesday is that it's wrapping up today with some snow showers today and extremely cold temperatures tonight.

Winter Storm Warnings have been canceled for the Spokane area and central Washington. Areas in northern Washington and Coeur d'Alene have been downgraded to a Winter Weather Advisory. Another 1-3" of snow is possible with the snow showers today.

Snow totals yesterday were impressive. Between 12-20" of snow across northern Washington, northern Spokane County, and North Idaho locations. Spokane got between 7-10" of snow across town. Officially 7.5" at the airport is a daily record for Nov. 30 and puts the monthly total at 18.5" - 6th snowiest. The nearby NWS Spokane office in Airway Heights recorded 9.9" of snow.

While snow showers fall today, temperatures will drop steadily through the day. Highs this morning were between 32-34 degrees but will hover in the upper 20s this afternoon. Then the extreme cold hits tonight as lows drop to the low 10s in Spokane and in the single digits or below 0° in northern Washington.

The weekend ahead doesn't look too bad. Only a small chance for Saturday morning snow showers, but the trends are more so for a Cascade snowfall Friday evening. Temps will stay winter like in the 20s.
