If your new and wondering, "Why do these crazy Washington people always talk about the passes?", here is why. Significant snow is supposed to cover the passes this weekend. Have a plan and a winter car kit if you are traveling

For those who have been wishing for snow (myself included) - here's your good news! A significant pattern change is expected by the end of the week. The best chances for lowland snow will be on Friday through Saturday morning. Into the weekend, snow will retreat to the mountains as warmer air pushes into the region. ⛷🏂 Stay updated with the latest forecast at weather.gov/Spokane. ❄

It's never ideal to drive in dense or heavy fog. Here are tips to increase your safety for when you must keep driving.

• Minimize distractions. Silence your cell phone and the stereo. Put distractions like your cell phone in a place where you won't be tempted to reach for them while driving, like the glove compartment.
• Reduce your speed. Because you can't see the road or other vehicles, a low speed can help you react safely.
• Roll down your window. This allows you to listen for cars and emergency vehicles.
• Use roadside reflectors as a guide. The markings can help you navigate twists and turns.
• Turn off cruise control. This will maximize your control of your vehicle.
• Use windshield wipers and defrosters. These will help limit excess moisture on the window and reduce glare.
• Drive with low beams and fog lights. High beams/brights can worsen visibility because they reflect off the fog.
• Use the right edge of the road as a guide. Helps you stay in your lane and not "drift" into the middle lane.
• Increase your following distance from other cars to ensure you have the proper time to respond to any obstacles. A good rule of thumb is to increase your count distance by at least 5 seconds instead of the normal 2 seconds behind another vehicle.
• Beware of animals on the road. Animals, especially white tail deer, feel bolder under cover of fog and are much harder to see. The lowered visibility in dense fog means less time for you to see them, and for them to see you.

What to do if you need to pull over to a safe area due to dense fog
• Use your turn signal. Other drivers may be using your taillights as a guide, so alert them that you're pulling off the road. When you are traveling in low visibility areas, signal earlier than you normally would in ideal weather conditions.
• Pull off away from the road. If drivers can't see the shoulder, they likely won't see your vehicle either.
• Turn on your hazard lights. Help other drivers know you're stopped. Avoid using flashing lights while driving. In many states, hazard light use is not permitted while driving. Using the hazard lights can make other drivers think you're stopped or stalled and using them may disable your ability to use your turn signals.

The Fog! It's the season for low visibility. Drive slow and allow plenty of time to reach your destination. Others won't, so please be careful out there

Expect a foggy morning commute for portions of the Inland Northwest, including from Spokane through Coeur d'Alene. Allow for extra time to reach your destination.

If you are new to the area, if you plan on travelling, know if the passes are drivable. Have a plan and have an emergency kit in your car.

Two weather systems will move through the region - one late Thursday/Friday and the second on Saturday. This will create winter driving conditions over the mountain passes, mainly Stevens and Washington. Other passes across the region will see very light snow

"Washington’s Second City, Spokane, is topping the charts these days. National Geographic named it one of the 30 best small cities in the country." 👀

We're in the Top 100! 💜 Once again, our city has been voted as one of Livability 's Top 100 Best Places to Live in the US!

Thank you so much to for sharing about all the things Spokane has to offer, and a bit about our other notable bragging rights! 😉

"Washington’s Second City, Spokane, is topping the charts these days. National Geographic named it one of the 30 best small cities in the country. In 2021, Spokane was named a top 10 hipster city in the world, somewhat comically, by MoveHub, in a ranking that counts things like thrift shops and microbreweries per capita. This year Spokane features again on Livability’s Top 100 best places to live.

What makes Spokane stand out? It’s a college town, with more than 40,000 students at multiple universities. Commercial rents are low enough that independent businesses can still thrive. Access to local farmlands makes the food and beverage scene dynamic and delicious. It is the only place in the country where visitors can skate around, and ride a gondola over, a spectacular waterfall in the middle of the city.

Spokane is a city of neighborhoods, with distinct districts offering discovery for curious travelers. Put on your walking shoes, bring your appetite and an empty suitcase, and you’ll be prepared to take in Spokane’s subtle charm."
