Spokane snowfall record now shattered

SPOKANE, Wash.- With at least another inch of new snow in Spokane County the record snowfall record for a season has officially been shattered. Spokane County broke the record on Sunday by about a tenth of an inch. The old record was set in 1949-1950 at 93.5 inches. On Sunday, Spokane County hit 93.6 inches.

So far there haven't been any snowfall totals for Thursday morning. The National Weather Service is reporting at least an inch of fresh snow on the ground and calling for another 3 to 5 inches by day's end.

There were a number of traffic incidents on area roadways Thursday morning. The first reported weather-related traffic incident was on 37th and High Drive when a car slid off the roadway into a tree. 

Another weather related incident shut down Ash Street in north Spkane at Courtland Ave for a short time. That involved a pickup truck hitting a power pole, knocking lines down into the roadway. Avista and Spokane Police responded to that incident. Spokane Police shut the roadway down just after 6 a.m. so Avista could clear the scene. The roadway was opened a short time later.

The incident knocked power out to about 30 Avista customers. Those customers had their power restored by noon.
