SPOKANE, WA - The Inland Northwest will receive its first winter storm of the season beginning today and continuing through the weekend. The National Weather Service's Charlotte Dewey says we can expect several rounds of snow in eastern Washington and north-central Idaho today through Sunday, followed by a warmer storm system that will bring areas of rain and high mountain snow.
