BLAKE JENSEN: Well our first storm in over 10 days moved through last night, and certainly cause for some tricky conditions, with freezing rain and sleet lasting longer than expected before turning to snow.

Today will be a brief hiatus from the winter weather with even some periods of sun-breaks across the Basin and Palouse. High temps will once again be at or slightly above freezing. Clouds increase again tonight ahead of the next weak storm system.

Overall expect similar conditions to last nights storm, but with even warmer temps overnight, limiting snowfall, and insuring most precipitation will be a mixture of snow and rain. After a long period of dry stagnant weather, we're once again in the middle of some active winter weather.
 
Thursday: Mostly Cloudy with some sun-breaks. Calm winds. High: 32°
 
Tonight: Increasing clouds ahead of next weak storm system. Mixture of snow and rain. Very light accumulations, if any. Low: 29°
 
Friday: Rain/Snow mix turning to mostly rain in the afternoon. High: 36°
