SEATTLE (AP) — The National Weather Service says about an inch of snow fell throughout the Spokane, Washington, area, where tens of thousands of households have been shivering without power for a week.
Meteorologist Matt Fugazzi says temperatures dropped to 29 degrees Monday night. He says the forecast calls for more snow, with temperatures dropping into the low 20s and strong winds that will make it feel even colder on Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day.
A major windstorm Nov. 17 damaged the electrical grid in the state's second largest city, leaving more than 29,000 customers in Spokane County without heat and light amid subfreezing temperatures.
Fugazzi, whose own home has been without power, says Spokane can expect some bitter cold over the next few days.
