Winter weather advisory issued

November 8, 2012
At 4:08 a.m. today, the National Weather Service, Spokane, issued a winter weather advisory for North Idaho, including Boundary County, and much of western Montana, calling for snow, wind and falling temperatures.

The advisory is in effect from 7 p.m. today through 4 p.m. Friday. Temperatures are expected to drop into the 20s overnight and only climb into the lower 30s on Friday, and sustained northeast winds of 10 to 20 miles per hour, with gusts up to 40 miles per hour, will drop wind chill temperatures into the teens.

Along with the cold and wind, we could see two to four inches of snow in valley locations and four to seven inches at higher elevations.

It is expected that precipitation will begin this evening as rain/snow mix, turning to all snow overnight. As a result, travel conditions on roads throughout the region are likely to be treacherous, with slush and snow making road surfaces extremely slick and blowing snow reducing visibility.
