Saturday: Clouds creep from both the south & west during the day As a result, the Blue Mountains to the Palouse & the East Cascade slopes will see light snow beginning by midday. Around Spokane/Cd’A, the forecast favors snow by the evening & continuing overnight. Low/High 21°/32° (GREEN Day/YELLOW Night)

Sunday: Start the day with 2” fresh snow, while another 1”-3” falls throughout the day. Microclimates will heavily influence storm snowfall… Low/High 22°/29° (YELLOW)

FYI: What’s a 50% chance of snow really mean? It's just a statistic that doesn’t have anything to do with area coverage nor timing...it simply means that 100 other days that were similar to the forecasted day, it snowed on 50 & was dry on 50 of those days. Over ½ of nearly 500 Pacific Northwest college students interpreted it erroneously during one of the most comprehensive studies addressing the ”Probability of Precipitation” in public forecasts.

Have a great weekend!Dave
