According to the forecast there is a chance that Spokane is gonna get snow this weekend which surprised me because I always thought you don't start seeing snowfall until early/mid November over in Spokane.

Yes, it is rare. The first measurable snow usually falls between early and late November.

Here is the current 10-day:

As you can see, those temps do not support a big snow event. But understand that some tv weathercasters like to create attention by mentioning the "S" word in a tease. Then they explain that it is mostly in the mountains and pretty much a non-event in the city. Must be frustrating for viewers.

Yes.

It has only happened once on record, and that was in 1926.

This weekend's snow will be pretty historic.

It’s been snowing off and on this morning here on the South Hill, but nothing measurable.
My grandson is convinced we’ve skipped over Halloween and Thanksgiving and have landed at Christmas.

Bunch of people in the Latah Valley and in Idaho have lost power.

The homes in the hills east of Moran Prairie had roofs covered in snow. I was at the South Hill YMCA today and several cars came in with 1 to 1.5 inches of snow on top.

The airport reported over three inches.
My daughter who lives in the Comstock neighborhood under a mile from us got more than we did. Her yard is covered.
