Get ready for cold wind, snow in the mountains
It’s going to be windy today into Saturday, with gusts as high as 45 mph, according to the National Weather Service’s Spokane office. The wind will be accompanied by falling temperatures that mean snow in the mountains and possibly a rain-snow mix in valley locations.
The weather service is saying winds will pick up late today and into Saturday, with a 50 percent chance of rain today.
Friday’s high is expected to be 61 degrees, with an expected low tonight of 43 degrees.
It’s going to get colder into the weekend, with a high on Sunday of just 48 degrees and an expected low of 29 degrees.
And that snow? The weather service says snow levels will fall “significantly,” bringing several inches of snow at higher elevations and potentially bad driving conditions.
Little or no snow accumulation is expected at lower elevations.
