Extreme cold, but no precipitation, in Thursday forecast

"We're still trying to get a handle on that situation", Clarke said. "That's pretty much where we are with this particular event".

The National Weather Service reported bitter-cold temperatures were expected to descend on the region overnight Tuesday and to keep their icy grip through the weekend.

The Friday morning low will be 28 with the wind chill at 22 and reaching 45 for the afternoon high.

The forecast for the rest of the week calls for high temperatures that won't get out of the teens and lows hovering in the single digits.

"It will be cold, especially at night". Temperatures will sit well below freezing, with highs in the upper 20s.

"You want to make sure there is adequate ventilation with the heating system and that you have working smoke detectors and new, working carbon monoxide detectors", he said.

The cold wasn't affecting patients' rooms, Tweten said, and space heaters were provided to staff.

While the area is set to miss out on wintry precipitation Thursday, and also dodge a system to the south Wednesday evening, there could be another chance for it in the next week.

Mostly sunny skies should return New Year's Day, but the NWS anticipates a high of 40 degrees on Monday, Jan. 1.

As you shiver in your auto before the heat kicks in, you might think this is the coldest it's ever been, but you would be wrong. So taking the average temperature of what we have so far-Dec. That's pretty typical for these kinds of air masses.

"We are always looking for more and can always use more of those things", Miller said Tuesday morning.

The Spokane region is due for another round of wet, white shellacking - and just in time for New Year's weekend.

The service said temperatures in the tri-county area will rise into the mid-40s Friday and Saturday before dipping back into the mid-30s for New Years' Eve and New Years' Day.
