SPOKANE, Wash. — Prepare for a weekend of winter weather! We’ve been so used to the spring-like conditions, we may have forgotten it’s still winter. We’re expecting a winter weather trio; snowfall, gusty winds and frigid temperatures.

Today, we can expect mostly cloudy skies heading out the door and throughout the afternoon lunch hour. We’ll stay mainly dry until this evening. The weather system will come over our part of the region late afternoon and early evening.
