LESLIE LOWE: Some of the coldest air that we have seen so far this season will filter in over the weekend, with temperatures in the overnights bottoming out in the single digits and sub zero territory for the first time this winter for areas around Colville and Republic! 

Aside from a weak system moving through Saturday night into Sunday morning, bringing just the slightest chance of light snow...we will see sunshine, but very cold temps through the remainder of the 6 day forecast!
 
 
Saturday: Partly Sunny Skies, winds will be light from the SW and temps will be COLD...bundle up if you are headed up to the mountain...conditions should be nice...fresh snow and sunshine...just bring the hand warmers!  21°/9°
 
Have a great weekend!

WARMING CENTERS ACTIVATED TONIGHT:

Due to the extreme weather conditions, the City of Spokane has activated its Homeless Warming Center program today, Friday, Jan. 11. Homeless warming centers are locations that can be used for the purpose of sheltering the homeless from the elements for brief intervals during extreme cold weather. 

These sites, which are not set up for lodging, are activated by the City only when temperatures are forecasted by the National Weather Service to drop to 15 degrees or lower and homeless shelters serving the target population were at capacity the previous 24 hours.  

The following Warming Centers will be open starting at 8 p.m. today, 1/11/2013 and will remain open until 7 a.m. 1/12/2013.

    PHOTOS: Hobo Spider season has arrived

    KHQ.COM - Mid August is about the time that we start to see spiders come into our homes, particularly the hobo spider. August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.>>
