KHQ.COM - Idaho Pass travelers: Lookout Pass rain should change into 4"-8" snow through Saturday at the summit…All Pass travel appears favorable Sunday.  

Tonight/Overnight: A disturbance crawls through the region delivering primarily rain…Folks along the US/Canadian Border may receive up to 1" wet snow, with heavier snowfall in W. MT/Clark Fork up to 4" before tapering off during the early morning hours 

Saturday: A disturbance practically stalls just south of Spokane, so the weather will vary quite a bit depending on where you live/travel…As A result, Spokane/Cd'A will dry out during the morning & stay mostly cloudy with a few afternoon sun breaks, SE WA/Pullman to Central ID will see rain most of the day, the interior from Lincoln County to the Cascades should be dry w/ partly to mostly sunny skies & afternoon showers will blossom over the mountains of NE WA & N ID after a dry start to the day… Low/High 36°/42° 

Sunday: Watch out for slick spots as your day is likely to begin on the foggy & frosty side with a few flurries…Most areas should see the gray conditions erode during the morning & evolve into a decent day with ample sunshine for travel, shopping, or adorning the house with decorations…Low/High 31°/40° 

FYI:  The last 10 days of November 2010, Spokane had to shovel through nearly 2 feet of snow (23.5" officially). Dave

"we have a chronic problem with overcrowding. In 2013, we spent more than 900 thousand dollars to send inmates out of county to find housing," said county commissioner Dan Green.  >>
