SPOKANE, Wash. - Mainly dry and cold conditions will continue through the rest of the work week before a light to moderate chance of snow hits Saturday.

Cloudy skies signal that moisture is beginning to chip away at our parched, subfreezing airmass and while a slow warming trend is expected, temperatures will remain well below normal for this time of the year.

At this point, up to 1 inch of snow is possible Saturday with an increasing chance as winds scour the dry, cold air beginning Sunday.

Sunday through Tuesday looks wintry with winds gusting from 35 to 50 miles per hour and a chance of snow each day. Snow totals for the Spokane area for this period should be around 2.5 inches.

Temperatures should rise above freezing by Wednesday.
