Snow fell across the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene areas through this morning’s commute, but the worst is over — for today, according to the National Weather Service.

The precipitation is tapering off. Temperatures are expected to reach the 20s then dip down to single digits, officials said.

About six inches was added to Spokane’s snowpack this morning, and the weather service says there’s a 30 percent chance of snow again tonight, but with less than a half inch accumulation.

On Tuesday, there’s a 20 percent chance of snow, with temperatures in the teens.

Another storm is set to bring another 4 to 7 inches of snow Christmas Eve, which could mean trouble for holiday travelers.
