Another round of November snow is expected across the Inland Northwest by morning with mountain areas likely to see significant accumulations. The snow should change to rain during the day Monday in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene.

A half inch to 2 inches of snow are possible in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene where a hazardous weather outlook has been posted.

A winter storm warning is in effect for Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille, the far northern part of Spokane and the eastern part of Okanogan counties in Washington and Bonner and Boundary counties and far northern Kootenai County in Idaho.

Snow accumulations could be 6 to 10 inches in valleys locales and 12 to 18 inches in the mountains.

The Cascades will also see heavy snow with 10 to 20 inches possible at Stevens Pass, forecasters said.

In Spokane, the snow may only reach a half-inch in depth and should change to rain after 10 a.m.

Temperatures will rise by afternoon as the region falls under a rainy period until the night of Thanksgiving Day when snow is forecast to return through Friday.

Rain resumes next weekend when travelers return home from holiday journeys.

Highs are going to run between the 30s and lower 40s with lows in the upper 20s to 30s during the period.

South wind gusts to 24 mph are possible later Monday and Monday night. y
