SPOKANE, Wash. — Perfect! That's the forecast for the Inland Northwest today. It's completely sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 50s, if not around 60 degrees.
The pattern change starts Thursday. A cooler and more active pattern hits the Pacific Northwest with scattered showers at first. Bigger impacts locally will be felt on Friday, especially for the mountains.
Starting with mountain snowfall... the Cascades will get that snow starting Thursday and Lookout Pass on Friday. The snow will be moderate to heavy at times, so those traveling over the passes will have to be cautious.
As of the lower elevations, a wet-slushy snow or graupel is possible Friday morning and Saturday morning. For Spokane, little to no accumulations expected, but North Idaho could get around an inch should temperatures stay cold enough through the morning hours.
Chances for showers will stick around through the end of the month with high temperatures largely in the 40s.
