Several rain showers are expected Thursday night into Friday. Very windy, with a south southeast wind 14 to 19 miles per hour becoming north 27 to 32 miles per hour after midnight. We'll see the "high" temperature for Friday around midnight with temps in the upper 30s and falling to below freezing by daybreak Friday.

South wind at 5-10 miles per hour.

Spokane is expected to get about 1 to 3 inches of snow. New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible. By 4pm, the average area temperature will be 4 degrees, but the wind chill could drop to -20 with northwest winds gusting to 31 miles per hour. Freezing rain is also possible during the morning on Thursday.

The heaviest snow is expected to begin tapering off after 10 a.m., Tesar said, with scattered accumulation continuing through Wednesday afternoon. The combination of accumulating snowfall and the strong winds may produce blizzard conditions.

Thursday: Snow likely, mainly after noon.

Today's forecast includes patchy fog before 10 a.m., and a high of 54 in the afternoon, according to the weather service.
