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
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

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