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 Spokesman-Review’s home delivery prices will increase on Jan. 1 for customers outside of the newspaper’s core market and for those who pay by the year, the company said Friday.

Prices for home delivery outside of Spokane and Kootenai counties will increase by $1 a month, to either $16.25 or $11.25, depending on how many days a week the paper is received.

Prices for customers who pay by the year will increase by $5, to $177 in Spokane and Kootenai counties and $195 in outlying counties.

Shaun O’L. Higgins, director of sales and marketing, also said in a news release that the company will launch a new electronic edition, called The E – a replica edition of the printed paper – in January.

The price for that edition hasn’t been set.
