Weekend ends with wet weather ahead of lunar eclipse

Sunday night’s view of the “super blood wolf moon” could be hindered by clouds and fog in Spokane.

Sunday night will see a continuation of wet weather across the Inland Northwest, with a mix of rain and snow. Snow will be very light for most of the region, aside from the Idaho Panhandle mountains.

By Monday morning, the Panhandle mountains could see between four and eight inches of snow above 3,000 feet. That’s where a winter weather advisory is in place until 7 a.m. The valleys around those mountains could also see up to two inches of snow. This could make travel difficult in some passes, including Lookout Pass.

The rest of the region just has a threat of a light dusting of snow, mainly in Southeast Washington and the Central Idaho Panhandle.

As that wet weather moves through the region, the clouds could make seeing the total lunar eclipse Sunday night difficult. The total eclipse will begin around 8:41 PST and will last about an hour.

Fog could also make things a little difficult. Fog is creeping into the Inland Northwest, impacting visibility in some areas. It isn’t expected to get too dense, though, until the overnight hours.

That fog will stick around until Monday morning. Temperatures will be cool enough that freezing fog could be a bit of an issue. However, Monday will remain dry with mostly cloudy conditions. The day will be quite chilly, with a high of just 30°.
