That snow melted fast, in a day or so, but this latest storm which dropped over 4" of snow at Spokane Airport and similar or more for Coeur d'Alene, Idaho Tuesday night (October 8th), was followed by very unusually cold air, which kept high temperatures in the freezing range on Wednesday, with 1" of snow still on the ground at Spokane airport in northeast Washington (elevation just above 2,000 feet) today (Thursday October 10), after 4" was reported as a snow depth all day Wednesday....More
