SPOKANE, Wash. — Snow returns to the mountains this weekend, with additional light accumulations possible across the northern valleys of Northeastern Washington and the Northern Panhandle of Idaho.
Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for parts of the Inland Northwest on Saturday, including both Stevens and Snoqualmie Passes in the Cascades and Lookout Pass in Idaho, so if you're doing any travel across the mountains on Saturday, allow for some extra time. Dry weather will return on Sunday.
For Spokane, temperatures look like they're going to be just a hair too warm for any snow accumulation on Saturday so a rain/snow mix is expected. High temperatures around 40 degrees would also melt off any snow that we see.
Snow is expected again next Monday and Wednesday. With much colder temperatures in place, several inches of accumulation are possible on Monday...and the snow will have a much harder time melting away with overnight lows Monday night dropping into the teens.
