Weather forecast

Tue., Jan. 29, 2008

Snowy weather will continue through the weekend.

After 13.7 inches of snow fell at Spokane International Airport on Saturday and Sunday, a snow advisory from the National Weather Service for the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene areas warns that 2 to 4 inches more is expected today.

Winds are expected to reach 20 mph, meaning drifting snow is likely on the Palouse and West Plains this afternoon.

Highs are expected to hit 32 degrees today and Wednesday, with lows about 24.

Expect light snow Wednesday, mostly in the mountains, then heavier accumulations beginning Thursday morning.

Light snow could fall again Friday, and heavier snow could once again move in over the weekend.

“We are definitely in a wet period, at least for the next five or six days,” said meteorologist Bob Tobin. “Skiing should be good.”
