Kootenai County, ID - The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for all of Kootenai County. This warning will remain in effect from Friday morning through Friday evening. Heavy snowfall is expected with possible accumulations of 5 to 8 inches. This storm has the potential to affect travel and produce hazardous conditions for the evening commute. Fourth of July Pass will see even more snowfall ranging from 10 to 20 inches. This could result in very difficult to impossible travel conditions.

With the winter storm season upon us, everyone should be prepared. Please be sure to monitor the latest forecast for updates. Residents can also prepare for winter by keeping an emergency supply kit in their car with these extras:

• Jumper cables

• Flares or reflective triangles
