On his Facebook wall, weathercaster George Maupin/KHQ gives this special weather report:
it's about to begin … winter is just to the west of us and headed this way… spokane starts with a little rain this afternoon and then becomes a rain-snow mix this evening and light snow overnight…. but spokane could end with an inch or two and a lot more than that in the mountains and idaho and montana… and more snow through tomorrow.. then we dry and but stay cold for the weekend and here comes more snow on monday…. elizabeth, if this storm coming in slows down or stalls… it would mean even more snow.. but, in general… tonight and tomorrow is wet and cold and, especially in the higher ground (above 2500 feet) the beginning of a winter snow pack.
Question: What have you done to prepare for winter tomorrow?
