SPOKANE, Wash. -

Wednesday night: After some breaks in the clouds tonight, we'll again see fog starting to form, especially in the E. Slopes of the Cascades and out across the Columbia Basin. Mid and Upper level clouds are also moving in from the SE as moisture starts to make it's way in. Low: 27°

Thursday: Showers start early Thursday morning just east of the Cascades. Parts of the Columbia Basin could see some light freezing rain during the morning. As moisture pushes east, light snow showers look to be possible from Spokane, north by the early afternoon. Should be mainly rain south of Spokane. If you see snow, it'll be light, anywhere from a dusting to an inch, tops. High: 34°

Looking Ahead: We can expect a couple more disturbances as we head into the weekend. Some spotty showers possible Friday morning, but the best batch of moisture looks to arrive by Friday night/Saturday morning. By then our temps will have risen above freezing, this should be a primarily valley rain/mountain snow event, with snow levels eventually rising to 6-7,000'.

    Spokane Valley firefighters battle structure fire at apartments

    SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash.- Spokane Valley firefighters are working to put out a fire at an apartment building on 6th Avenue. 

    Firefighters brought in extra resources because they were worried the fire could spread to nearby brush but they have been fighting it for about an hour. They tell KHQ that they have managed to keep it contained to one building, although there are multiple units inside.
