Winter weather advisory issued for snow

January 23, 2013
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for North Idaho and the northeastern Washington mountains, calling for a chance of four inches of snow in the valleys tonight.

The advisory goes into effect at 4 p.m. today until 4 a.m. Thursday.

According to the National Weather Service, snow is expected to begin falling late this afternoon and intensify through the evening before tapering off to scattered snow showers by dawn Thursday. Valley locations could see two to four inches of snow from this system, higher elevations could see up to five inches of fresh snow over night.

The chance of snow is 100%.

Motorists are advised that overnight driving conditions could be hazardous, with slick, icy roads and limited visibility. It could also make the morning commute tricky, though the chance of more snow diminishes to 40% between sunup and 10 a.m.

Temperatures tomorrow are expected to rise above freezing tomorrow as warmer, southwesterly winds take over, pushing out stagnant air and the sub-freezing conditions that have prevailed for almost a week.

The overnight low for tonight in Bonners Ferry is expected to be 27-degrees, with temperatures warming to 34-degrees on Thursday. Each day through next Tuesday carries a chance of light to moderate snow.
