Winter storm warning issued for snow

December 16, 2012
The National Weather Service, Spokane, has cancelled a winter weather advisory and replaced it with a winter weather warning in effect from 8 p.m. today through 4 p.m. Monday, calling for heavy snow.

The coming system, the NWS advises, could cause treacherous travel conditions by the time of the Monday morning commute.

Light snow this morning will taper off to scattered snow showers throughout the day, then become a steady snowfall this evening, becoming heavier through the night and into Monday morning.

We could see snowfall of four to eight inches in the valleys and up to 14-inches at higher elevations, pushed by southerly winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour along exposed ridge tops, with gusts to 50 miles per hour beginning Monday morning.

The NWS warns that motorists on Highway 95 and Interstate 90 could see moderate to heavy snowfall during the morning commute, making for extremely slick roads and poor visibility.
