SPOKANE, Wash. - The first significant snow of the season is moving in as a warm and wet Pacific storm is expected to reach the Spokane area late Monday night. 

If you live in the Spokane area, you can expect up to four inches of snow by Tuesday evening.

A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for areas north of I-90 and between eight and 15 inches of snow in the mountains is expected by Wednesday morning. The warning is in effect until Tuesday at 4 p.m.

Valley areas can expect between four and eight inches of snow by Tuesday night, though areas south of I-90 will accumulate less snow as showers change to rain Tuesday, with brief freezing rain possible during the change over.
 
Over the next 36 hours, you can expect two rounds of showers. The first will bring snow Monday night and into Tuesday morning. A brief break is expected during the day on Tuesday with the second round of showers due Tuesday night into Wednesday. Showers should change to all rain by Wednesday.

    OMAK, Wash. - I can picture the Austin Powers bit now.  The people of Omak looking up at the sky and seeing a giant (Fill in the blank innuendo here) just like in 1999's Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.
