Snowstorm that missed Spokane blankets parts of North Idaho

UPDATED: Tue., Feb. 28, 2017, 9:18 a.m.

A snow storm that missed Spokane and Coeur d’Alene last night covered parts of North Idaho, including Shoshone County in as much as a foot of snow.

St. Maries, Idaho, received about 15 inches of snow in nine hours, prompting school closures at St. Maries Joint School District. North of Coeur d’Alene in Boundary County, Naples was covered in about 10 1/2 inches, the National Weather Service reported.

Closer to Spokane, in Deer Park, areas received about 2 inches of snow, while 6 inches was recorded in Springdale north of Long Lake. At Spokane International Airport, about 1/4 inch of snow was recorded.

Weather service forecasters predict another system moving in Tuesday night that could bring an inch of snow to Spokane and Coeur d’Alene. In the Sandpoint area of Idaho, as much as 2 to 3 inches of snow could fall.

As for today, forecasters predict near-freezing temperatures and cloudy skies with almost no chance of snow.

“We’ve got some cooler, dryer air coming in on the backside of this storm,” said NWS forecaster Jeremy Wolf.
