After a round of mainly mountain snow on Saturday, we'll get a break with dry weather and sunshine for Sunday. Should be clear sailing across the area mountain passes.
Temperatures will be cold though. Even with sunshine, highs will only be in the low to mid 30s across the Inland Northwest with lows in the 20s. That cold air will set the stage for a wide spread light snow even on Monday. The chilly temperatures means roads could be slick for the morning commute. Right now it's looking like snow accumulations of 1-2" for the Spokane/Coeur d'Alene area and afternoon temperatures just above freezing in the low to mid 30s.
Dry weather is expected for Tuesday, but then another round of rain and snow moves in for Wednesday. It looks like we'll pull in a little warmer air with this system, so a mixture of rain and snow will be possible in Spokane and high temperatures will approach 40 degrees.
