More wet weather is on the way for Sunday, with a mixture of rain and snow in the valleys. Due to relatively mild temperatures, accumulations in the lower elevations are expected to be light, less than an inch.
Above 3000 ft across the Central Panhandle Mountains, 3 to 8 inches of snow is possible, and the Camas Prairie could see 2 to 6 inches. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for these areas from 4am Sunday morning through Sunday evening. Those traveling over Lookout Pass should expect snowy roads.
Though precipitation will be coming to an end in the Spokane/Coeur d'Alene area by Sunday evening, lingering clouds will prevent ideal viewing conditions for the Lunar Eclipse which begins at 6:36 pm PST. The total eclipse begins around 8:41 pm and continues through 9:43 pm.
Monday's weather should be dry, though low clouds and fog will keep temperatures on the cold side of normal, with highs only in the low to mid 30s.
Rain/snow returns by late Tuesday, and minor accumulations will again be possible into Wednesday morning before temperatures warm into the upper 30s Wednesday afternoon.
