WEATHER ALERT (10/23/2020):A reminder that the National Weather Service is predicting the first big snowfall of the year throughout the day on Friday, primarily in the area of Spokane/Pullman north to the Canadian border, as well as in the mountain passes. While I-90 Snoqualmie Pass may see some snowfall early in the day, most of the snow concern is on the northern passes like US 2 Stevens and SR 20 North Cascades Highway. If you are traveling in any of those areas, please be prepared for challenging conditions, and if you are going over a pass have tire chains available and know how to use them. For updates, check:

DRESS ACCORDINGLY (10/21-10/25, 2020):Temperatures will be getting colder late in the week with a chance for snow to impact the region as well. Details for next weekend are still uncertain, but valley snow is a possibility.

SEASONS CHANGE.Days are quickly getting shorter across the Inland Northwest, but just how fast you might wonder? Today's daylight length in Spokane is 10 hours and 44 minutes and just a mere 2 weeks from now they will be 9 hours and 56 minutes long, a loss of over 3 minutes per day. One month from now the days will be 93 minutes shorter and we are only 65 days away from the shortest day of the year. On another note, Daylight Saving Time ends right after Halloween this year and by then the sun will set before 5:00 PM. Do we have a lot of fans of these shorter days? ... See MoreSee Less

TAKE NOTE (10/16/2020):A number of area mental health professionals were targeted today in attempted frauds and thefts. The scammers ‘spoofed’ the phone number of the Kittitas County Sheriff’s Office (so the victim's phone’s ‘caller ID’ falsely indicated our office was calling) and they identified themselves as members of our Sheriff’s Office. The scammers also had specific information about the intended victims and their professional involvement with our county's court system. They sounded very plausible to the targets, who were professionals and familiar with the court system.

Deputies are investigating the incident and we will advise the public of anything suggesting the threat of further targeted fraud or other criminal activity. In the meantime, please be assured that no real Sheriff’s Office or other legitimate Law Enforcement Agency of any kind—local, state, or federal—will demand bail money or anything like it by a telephone call. If anyone requests payment over the phone by a method that involves you having to buy a card and supply a number, you should be very suspicious; and if you have any doubt about the legitimacy of a Law Enforcement contact in this county, call our dispatch center, KITTCOM, at 509-925-8534—or simply dial 911.
