KHQ WEATHER AUTHORITY: Get Ready, Frigid Temperatures On The Way

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday: AM Snow showers across the Palouse and Lower Columbia Basin...should see those exit the region around mid-day, but until then could get up to 1" of snow in those areas. Overall, drier/colder air starts moving in, we see clearing skies from north to south. Partly Cloudy by this afternoon. High: 27°

Tuesday Night: Mostly clear skies and temperatures really start to DROP! Low: 13°  

Wednesday: Mostly sunny skies for the entire region. Winds still slightly breezy, between 10-15mph. High: 20°  

Expect cold temperatures the rest of this week! Arctic air will continue to funnel into the PacNW, and that means overnight temperatures into the SINGLE DIGITS by Wednesday night!

Frigid forecast for next week in Washington

Forecasters expect freezing temperatures for the next week in Washington.
    
The National Weather Service says highs may barely reach the freezing mark with lows dropping into the teens in Western Washington. In Eastern Washington, highs may not get out of the 20s on some days and lows will be in the single digits.
    
Forecasters say there's a slight chance of snow on Thursday and the possibility of snow late in the weekend or early next week.
