Mann: We’re not finished with snow

Print Article

Temperatures in parts of Kootenai County reached 60 degrees for the first time this season on Monday.

According to Press meteorologist Randy Mann, that checks in about 10 degrees warmer than the normal — the average high temperature for March 12 is 49 degrees.

“We always get these little heat waves at some point, so it’s not a record,” Mann said. “But it is unusual.”

The average high in Coeur d’Alene does not normally reach 60 degrees until April 18, Mann said. However, he warned that colder days might not be far off in the future.

His forecast predicts off-and-on rain showers for the remainder of the week, with some snow flurries possible in the morning hours this weekend.

Mann described this winter as very atypical for the Inland Northwest.

“It has been very unusual,” he said. “We’ve had three winters: early November, mid-December, and mid-February.”

Late this month, Mann said one more large snowfall could come through the area, a lingering result of the three Nor’easters that recently ripped through the mid-Atlantic and New England.

“We just saw three Nor’easters in 10 days, which has never happened before,” he said. “That was unprecedented.”

To this point, the region has seen 87.1 inches of snowfall this season. Mann said the next snowfall could push us over the 90-inch mark.
