Chilly Monday before some rain and snow – Matt

What we’re tracking

A fast-moving system will complicate Thanksgiving travel Monday night through early Wednesday morning. Wintry weather will start late Monday in the Cascades and will peak Tuesday night in the Inland Northwest with rain, wintry mix, or snow depending on how far north you are.

Tue Cap

Northern Valleys could see an inch or two while the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene areas could see a dusting to an inch. Some of that might not even stick when it begins Tuesday evening. Lookout Pass and other areas around North Idaho could still see some flurries when we’re waking up on Wednesday.

Plan your Monday

Plan Mon

Monday will be slightly warmer in the morning, but we are still stuck in a calm inversion pattern so don’t expect much to be different. Carry on as we’ve done the past couple of weeks. The changes will hold off until Tuesday.

Spokane and Coeur d’Alene forecast

Tuesday starts cloudy and breezy and we will warm into the upper 30s after lunch. As the storm arrives it will begin as rain, then flip to snow in Idaho and some combination of snow/mix on the Washington side. This won’t happen until after sunset and most of the impactful weather will happen in the evening and overnight. We’re back into calm weather on Wednesday, but it will be a lot warmer with 40s for highs into next weekend.
