From staff reports

Predicted overnight snow will likely lead to an icy and perhaps snowy Thursday morning commute, a reminder that winter isn’t over.

But Thursday isn’t likely to see any new snow during the daylight hours and will remain mostly sunny with a high of 36 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Thursday night will likely bring patchy freezing fog and a low of 22 degrees.

About an inch of snow was expected to fall overnight in Spokane, according to Amanda Young, meteorologist with the Spokane office of the National Weather Service. She said rain would precede the overnight snow and temperatures likely would dip to 26 degrees.

“We’re only looking at an inch,” she said. “Initially it’s going to be a little wet.”

Thursday morning commuters would likely see patches of ice and snow on the roads, Young said Wednesday.

“It’s going to be a little messy in the commute,” she said.

The snow would be the city’s first of the month, following Spokane’s second-snowiest February on record.
