Another Blanket Of Snow Covers The Northwest

SPOKANE — The city is waking up to a fresh coat of snow and the revving of plow engines as the clean up gets underway for the morning commute.

The City Streets Department says it will plow, de-ice and sand priority areas, beginning with steep hills like N. Monroe, Bernard, Thor and Freya.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory and a Winter Storm Warning for Spokane, Coeur d’Alene and much of the Northeast mountains that will last into Thursday evening.

Anywhere from one to two inches of snow fell overnight and more snow is on the way Thursday. Another three to five inches could fall around the Inland Northwest Thursday with rain mixed in once temperatures warm up.

More snow was expected in the Pullman and Moscow area. Anywhere from four to six inches fell Wednesday night into Thursday, with more on the way.

The Winter Weather Advisory and Winter Storm Warning have been extended to 5 p.m. Thursday for much of the area.

A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow are either expected or are occurring. These snowy conditions could make travel hazardous and at times impossible.

Unsettled weather will stick around until Friday before warmer temperatures take effect.
