Storm watch upgraded to warning in North Idaho
January 10, 2018
The National Weather Service, Spokane has upgraded a winter storm watch in North Idaho to a winter storm warning for snow, in effect from 4 a.m. Thursday to 4 p.m. Friday.

New snow accumulations of six to 12 inches are expected in the valleys, with one to two feet of snow likely in the mountains.

Travel will be difficult or impossible, especially at higher elevations, and visibility could be greatly reduced. Travel during the Thursday evening commute is expected to be especially bad.

Motorists are advised to keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.

The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 511.

This much snow is likely to take down trees and power lines, resulting in power outages. Residents should get out to stock up before the storm hits, and please check with elderly or infirm neighbors to help ensure they have what they need to weather the storm.
