Snow expected by weekend

SPOKANE, Wash. - The first measurable snow fall of the season is expected to hit Eastern Washington and North Idaho Friday.

Early estimates call for about 2.5 inches by Saturday morning.

In the meantime, scattered drizzle Wednesday will spread up to Spokane from the south around 3 p.m. and as temperatures drop Wednesday evening, wet snow could mix in briefly before showers end overnight.

Thursday should be cold and dry. As a colder airmass moves in, morning lows will drop to near 30 degrees with upper 30s expected for afternoon highs.

Friday will be cold as well with a low of 30 degrees and a high of 34 degrees, so any showers that may fall will be snow. The first flurries could arrive overnight Thursday and last until Saturday morning.

Friday through Sunday, winds are expected to gust between 30 and 35 miles per hour.

Saturday should be cold and mostly dry with an expected low of 22 degrees.
