Parts of the Inland Northwest see first light snow of the year

SPOKANE, Wash. — Snow is here!

There have been a few dustings in the mountains over the past few weeks, but some of the lower elevations of the Inland Northwest saw the first snow of the year Wednesday.

Snow was reported in southeast Spokane near Tower Mountain and down toward Pullman.

Local firefighters reported snow in Valleyford south of Spokane Valley.

The snow fell in Pullman too, bringing a little winter feel to fall classes at Washington State University.

WSDOT crews in the Blue Mountains experience more than just a little slush. Their training run became a little more than that as snow coated the ground.

In Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, the wet weather stayed as rainfall. 4th of July Pass and Lookout Pass in Idaho both saw some of their first fall flakes Wednesday afternoon. A cold front moving across the region is bringing the rain/snow mix, but it won’t stick around for long. Conditions are expected to dry out a little on Thursday before much drier weather Friday and Saturday.
