SPOKANE, Wash. — Snow is falling across the Inland Northwest, but as it winds down, the little accumulation will have some surmountable impacts. Less than an inch almost everywhere aside from the mountain tops. The cold ground from our recent artic chill means the snow did a great job of sticking. Timing meant a slow go for the evening commute.
Temperatures stay cold Tuesday night, meaning the snow really isn't going anywhere by Wednesday morning. It will likely be very slick start to the day. With lows near 20 degrees to start the day, even what melts late Tuesday will refreeze Wednesday morning.
Wednesday starts the warmup. Temperatures will climb above freezing in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene, along I-90 and most locations south of the interstate. Then it's the temperature swing each day and night that have the most impact on the region.
Temps will slide back below freezing Thursday morning. Once again, that means some slick spots on the roads. Then, it's another warm afternoon. Near 40 degrees across the Inland Northwest and climbing through the weekend.
However, the end-of-week warmup comes with a chance of rain in low elevations and a little snow up high. Right now, snow levels look to hover around 3,000-3,500 feet through the weekend. That's much closer to an end of February pattern than a start of February pattern.
