It's going to be another mild one across the #InlandNW  today, with near normal temperatures across the region! #wawx  #idwx

A weak weather system will pass through the #InlandNW  tonight. We could see a few valley sprinkles/flurries, and light mountain snow. #wawx  #idwx 

As we approach the end of February, we wanted to share the seasonal snowfall totals in #Spokane  this season thus far. At 40.9", we are pretty much in the middle of the pack. All-time record is more than double this amount!! #wawx

Scattered light sprinkles and flurries drifting through Idaho and southeastern WA this morning, otherwise look for dry conditions and afternoon highs in the 40s. #wawx  #idwx 

A bit warmer this morning compared to the last few days courtesy of a thick deck of clouds. #wawx  #idwx

Did you hear, we have some very mild weather ahead of us? In case you haven't, feast your 👀 on this forecast & pay particular attention to Friday's temps. The forecast in Spokane is 57°F, which is the warmest temp since 10/25/19. It cools off after that though. #wawx  #idwx 

Tonight's weather balloon run took an interesting track tonight before popping around 106,000'. It was primarily drifting to the southeast and then took a U-Turn around Emida, ID before popping just east of Tensed, ID.

We spied with our little ? the first snow of the season here at our office. It is also snowing at Fairchild AFB. If it snows soon at the Spokane Airport it will be the first time it occurred in September since 1926!

Visible satellite data from today (first image) compared to one year ago shows a huge difference in snow cover across the region. Last year at this time, almost all of the Inland Northwest was covered with snow whereas today most if it was confined to the mountains. #wawx  #idwx 

Ever wonder what a solar eclipse would look like from space? Take a look at this one captured by @nasa !

The #eclipse2017  a satellites perspective from coast to coast.

Meteorological term-o-the-day: #Fujiwhara  Effect - The tendency of two nearby tropical cyclones to rotate cyclonically about each other.

Stunning! GOES16 capturing the #eclipse2017  across the western US with the mostly clear skies. #wawx  #idwx 

You can see the exact moment when the Cascade fires really started sending up a lot of smoke today. Headed east, unfortunately #wawx  #idwx 

Normally these eddies aren't visible. But these have wildfire smoke in them so they show up on visible satellite.
