Some cold nights ahead across the Northwest

TUESDAY, JAN. 10, 2012, 8:56 A.M.

Rainfall and slushy snow across the Inland Northwest overnight, combined with temperatures hovering near freezing, led to areas of hazardous travel conditions this morning.

Snow showers were expected to persist across Lookout Pass and the higher terrain of the Camas Prairie through the morning hours, the National Weather Service said.

But today should turn sunny, with a high near 34 by noon, in Spokane. Then the temperature will drop, reaching a low of 18 tonight, the agency said in this morning’s forecast.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny, with a high near 29. Wednesday night will have a low around 19.

The pattern looks set to repeat into the weekend, with daytime highs around 30-35 degrees, and nighttime lows in the low-20s.

Sunday and Monday, the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, will bring a 30 percent chance of snow.
