Tri-Cities, Wash. - A heavy snow warning is in effect for much of Eastern Washington and North Idaho. Heavy snow is expected overnight. By morning we could see 3 to 5 inches of new snow south of I-90, and 2 to 4 inches north of I-90.

The forecasted weather will make travel dangerous. Traveling is only recommended for emergencies. Motorists should keep extra flashlights, food and water in their vehicles in case of an emergency.

This heavy snow warning is in effect from 4 p.m. Wednesday until 7:00 Thursday morning, and applies to the following areas: Coeur d'Alene, Post Falls, Hayden, Spokane, Cheney, Davenport and Rockford.

Again, snow is expected to develop through Wednesday afternoon and last overnight. With the main band of precipitation shifting well south of the area, light snow accumulations will be possible in the mountains and valleys through the night.

By morning we could see 2 to 4 inches of snow in the valleys and mountains south of Highway 20 in Washington, and Highway 2 in Idaho. Areas north of there can expect 2 inches or less of snow in the valleys with a little more in the mountains.

Motorists should be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibility.
