In the Spokane area, snow is expected to be falling during the morning commute and will continue until the evening. In Spokane and Coeur d’Alene 2-4 inches of snow are likely with blowing snow on the higher benches around the valley and the West Plains limiting visibility and causing some drifting onto roads. Further north in the area of the Winter Storm Warning, 5-1o inches of snow will fall in the valleys. The Palouse region will also see light snow on Monday, 1-3 inches.
