SPOKANE, Wash. — Scattered showers remaining in the area tonight and into Tuesday as a weather system is passing through Washington.
Big picture, it's a warm front first before the cold front that moves through during the day Tuesday. Small picture/details: scattered showers remain in eastern Washington through Tuesday morning, while north Idaho has scattered showers all day Tuesday. Rain/snow levels are at 6,000 feet tonight but drop to 4,500 feet Tuesday. That means high mountains in Idaho will get snow, but even mountain passes will only be a rain/snow mix or a little snow at most.
Beyond this weather system, it'll be dry for the rest of the week. Temperatures will gradually cool from the upper 40s Tuesday to low 40s by the weekend.
Next week, the outlook is colder with high sin the mid to upper 30s heading into Thanksgiving. There also appears to be a chance for a weather system mid-week or before Thanksgiving. Given the colder temperature profile it may be rain or snow, but way too early to guarantee any snowfall for any given day yet.
