More winter on the way

December 18, 2012
Enjoy today's relatively mild conditions ... according to the National Weather Service, Spokane, another round of winter is on the way, and a winter storm watch goes into effect Wednesday afternoon.

Today could bring a few scattered snow shower, moreso this afternoon, but with the occasional sunbreak. While there's a 40-percent chance of snow this afternoon and evening, accumulations of less than an inch are predicted, with overnight low temperatures in the low teens.

Tomorrow temperatures are expected to climb into the mid to upper 20s, and possible scattered flurries will become more widespread, bringing another inch or so to the valleys before settling in Wednesday evening through about 10 p.m. Thursday, when we could see up to an additional six to eight inches of new valley snow before tapering off Friday morning.

On behalf of many who sent in comments, Bonners Ferry News extends its thanks to George Schutes, head of the Idaho Transportation Department's Boundary County maintenance crew, Boundary County Road and Bridge supervisor Jeff Guttshall, Bonners Ferry street maintenance supervisor John Youngwirth and their crews.

The first big snowfall of the season always creates a mess, but they were all up early Monday and stayed late getting our highways, roads and streets cleared and safe.
