In brief: Weather service forecasting snow

A storm moving into the area today could bring snow to the Spokane area, the National Weather Service reported Saturday.

A 60 percent chance of snow was forecast through tonight, with a least an inch of accumulation in the Spokane area.

Winter storm warnings were in effect for the southeastern Washington counties late Saturday, including in Pullman and the Palouse, as well as the Idaho Panhandle. About two inches of snow had already fallen by 8:30 p.m. near Deary, Idaho, forecasters said.

Another winter storm is expected Tuesday, but temperatures later in the week are expected to be milder, bringing temperatures in the mid-30s and a mix of rain and snow.

The reasons for a city are many, but chief among them is water – for drinking, for transportation, for industry and, most recently, for beauty.
