Original predictions for snowfall were scaled back this morning for Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, weather officials said. Spokane could get up to an inch while Coeur d’Alene could receive up to two inches. With temperatures above freezing, most of it will melt almost immediately.

The high today is forecast in the upper 30s with lows in the bottom 20s, according to the weather service.

The moisture will disappear Friday, but temperatures are expected to cool down. The Inland Northwest may not even get above freezing during the day while teens are forecast overnight.

A chance of snow returns Saturday morning and persists through Monday as cooler than normal weather continues, according to the weather service.
