SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Frigid temperatures in the Inland Northwest are about to give way to another storm front and then even colder weather.

Temperatures are expected to plunge tonight, to near zero in parts of Idaho and Eastern Washington.

Meteorologist Nic Loyd of Washington State University says that will be followed on Wednesday night by moderate to heavy snowfall.

Then, another cold snap is predicted starting on Friday.

Loyd says this is a tough week, weather wise, for the region. It’s a sharp contrast to the two most recent winters, which were mild.

Wind chills tonight are forecast at -8 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and -6 in Moses Lake and Colville, Washington.

Sub-zero wind chills are also predicted for Spokane, Walla Walla and Chelan, Washington, and for the Pullman-Moscow area.
