The Spokesman-Review

Most drivers and pedestrians across the Spokane-North Idaho area will confront wet or sleety morning conditions Saturday, with a drying trend later in the day.

And some parts of the region could wake up to snow, according to a winter advisory by the National Weather Service.

Wet air heading east across the Cascades could produce snow accumulations of up to an inch mostly south of Interstate 90, said meteorologist Ellie Kelch.

The advisory warned drivers to prepare for slipper conditions on Interstate 90 and on Highway 195 from Spokane to Pullman.

Saturday evening will see the chances of precipitation dropping to 30 percent. Saturday’s high will be around 35 and the evening low about 32.
