Presently, snow levels are around 6,000 feet, which is quite high for mid-November, and are supposed to plummet to about 4,500 feet on Tuesday. The reason for the high snow levels has been attributed to enough of a warm pocket of air, and a warm front, pushing through the Inland Northwest first before the cold front due to which colder air is supposed to start filtering in slowly on Tuesday.
Rain totals are anticipated around one or two-tenths of an inch for Spokane and around one-quarter of an inch in North Idaho.
The mountain peaks above 4,500 or 5,000 feet are likely to get a little wet snow accumulation like Mt. Spokane. But the taller, 6,000 feet-plus peaks in North Idaho are likely to get a couple of inches of accumulations.
Dry conditions have been forecasted for the Sherman Pass by Tuesday late morning, so snow levels are not going to drop fast enough for snow. Lookout Pass is supposed to get a rain/snow mix or wet snow late Tuesday afternoon, but no significant snow accumulations are expected either.
