The National Weather Service this afternoon issued a forecast for 3.7 inches of snow in Spokane and 5.3 inches of snow in Coeur d’Alene from a storm due to arrive on Tuesday night.

The storm is likely to extend southward into the Palouse where Pullman may see 3.2 inches of snow. Sandpoint may see 2.5 inches.

Even heavier snow is likely in the mountains of North Idaho. Some locations could see a foot of fresh powder.

The storm is expected to arrive mainly overnight and into Wednesday from a strong cold front moving east from the Pacific Ocean. High temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the middle 30s with the low on Tuesday around 30 degrees.

Yet another storm over the weekend could bring wind, snow and rain, forecasters said.
