Local mountains could see snow as early as this weekend

Snow… yes, snow… could be on the way this weekend.

But, it won’t stick around for long.

According to the National Weather Service in Spokane, an unseasonably cold storm system is on track to impact the Inland Northwest later on this week.

Cold temperatures are on their way starting Friday morning for some isolated spots across northern WA and ID, and then becoming more widespread Sat and Sun morning. #coveryourtomatoes #wawx #idwx pic.twitter.com/FJHT8DhBY1

The system will bring winter-like conditions over the mountains, but 4 News Now weather forecaster Mark Peterson said it will not stick.

In lower elevations, frost and freeze are likely. Take this as your warning to cover your plants.

The colder weather is expected to begin Thursday, but the coldest temperatures are expected to come over the weekend.
