WINTER IS COMING: Area sets record for snow in September, power outages impact several in Stevens County

KREM 2 meteorologist Tom Sherry stood in front of a loud crowd of Springdale and Northport football fans on Friday night as the rain begin to pour on the field and northern Stevens County.

“I predicted this!” Tom exclaimed as a joke. But he was right, as various weather services warned of an impending snow storm for mountain areas with white stuff possibly finding its way down into valley areas.

And that is exactly what happened. Spokane set records for both daily and monthly snow totals. It was also the first measurable snow in September for the Lilac City since 1926. The Spokesman-Review reported wind chill dropped the temperature at the Spokane International Airport to 21 degrees at 1 a.m. on Sunday morning.
