SPOKANE, Wash. - The snow band attached to a storm complex, which was stuck across the Idaho panhandle is moving east.  The snow this morning brings us into fifth snowiest winter at 82.4 inches.

If we received 11" more, this would be our snowiest winter ever. A few spots around northern Spokane County collected a foot with what we had last night. Tonight, a Heavy Snow Warning remains in place for Sandpoint, Deer Park, Chewelah, Newport and Kettle falls. Four to eight inches could pile around Diamond Lake and the outlining areas. Very localized amounts are what we are looking at as the next part of this cold air mass scoots over us. Some afternoon hit miss showers followed by some clearing making for some colder temperatures and very icy roadways.

Tomorrow morning get ready for another snow event lasting into the midmorning. One more round of snow and rain come in Monday night. Tuesday until the end of the week we build in some quitter weather. We'll be a little on the cool side until Thursday, when we could finally reach the 50 degree mark.
