Snow skips area; sun reappears
The Inland Northwest continues to get a reprieve from wintry weather, despite forecasts that snow might be on the way.
Sunny skies are arriving this morning across the region.
A weak weather system in the Spokane region overnight failed to produce any snow in the Inland Northwest with the exception of light snow and icy patches being reported on Lookout Pass on Interstate 90 in Idaho and Sherman Pass on Washington Highway 20.
After dropping only trace amounts of precipitation in Spokane overnight, the system has moved to the south, allowing for clearing skies and sunshine by this afternoon, forecasters said.
Highs today should reach the lower 40s with lows near 27 in Spokane.
Fog is showing up this morning in some Northeast Washington valleys, including Colville.
Veterans Day on Thursday should be partly sunny with highs again in the lower 40s. There is a 30 percent chance of rain Thursday night.
The next chance of rain or snow doesn’t reappear in the forecast until Saturday night when a 20 percent risk of mixed precipitation is being forecast.
Sunday should be partly sunny with continuing cool temperatures.
At 7 a.m., it was 32 at Spokane International Airport, 33 at Felts Field, 34 in Coeur d’Alene, 32 at Deer Park and 35 in Pullman.
