Snow falling again, but Sunday looks sunny

An unusual weather system dropping southward from British Columbia and Alberta brought snow to the Spokane region early today and light rain this afternoon. The band of precipitation moved into a cold low pressure area that settled over the region on Thursday, leaving temperatures this morning cool enough for snow. The snow fell from Coeur d’Alene westward to Moses Lake through mid-morning. Spokane has had 69 inches of snow since cold weather began last fall. That amount is about 150 percent of normal for the city. Today’s high is expected to hit 52 with the chance of rain at 50 percent. Improving weather is in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday, even though the cool temperatures hang around for two more days. Saturday should be partly sunny. Overnight lows just above freezing could bring a chance of rain or snow showers on Saturday morning. Highs on Saturday are expected to reach 55. Sunday still looks like a nice spring day with mostly sunny skies and highs near 61 in Spokane. Monday may be even warmer at 64. A brief cool down is expected on Tuesday, but the weather could turn around next week and bring temperatures near or above normal in the lower 60s on Wednesday and 68 by Thursday At 7 a.m., it was 30 at Spokane International Airport, 33 at Felts Field, 34 in Coeur d’Alene, 31 in Deer Park and 32 in Pullman.
