Winter storm watch above 3,000 feet

February 21,2013
The National Weather Service, Spokane, has issued a winter storm watch effective Friday afternoon and into Saturday calling for heavy snow and gusty winds above 3,000 feet.

Valley locations could see one to four inches of fresh snow, totals could reach to 13 inches at higher elevations, where winds could gust up to 45 miles per hour.

According to the National Weather Service, light snow accumulations are likely today and tonight over the region, which includes Boundary County, mostly at higher elevations.

A much heavier round of snow is expected to hit Friday afternoon and persist through Saturday, potentially heavy at times. Valley locations could see light accumulations. The snow level will start off on the valley floor tonight and rise to 3,000 feet Friday afternoon.

The snow has the potential to make roads slick for the morning commute Friday, and could make travel on mountain roads treacherous or impossible.
