Welcome to Spokane County
With snow in the mountains and more in the forecast, it's a good time to explore some of the area's indoor treasures. For example, the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture has four galleries of wonder, filled with beautiful art and artifacts, or perhaps a visit to Mobius, the Science Museum for children of all ages in downtown Spokane. Whatever your interests, it's a great time of year to go exploring in Spokane County!
Residents in unincorporated areas should prepare for severe cold weather
An arctic front is moving into the Inland Northwest and bringing with it frigid temperatures. Those living in unincorporated areas of Spokane County should be prepared for the extreme cold and take appropriate steps to protect themselves, their property, and their pets/livestock.
