— A scattering of snow began to fall in town Friday, creating a thin layer of slick accumulation on the streets by noon.

The National Weather Service said total daytime snow accumulation of around an inch could be possible.

The forecast calls for dry weather Saturday and Sunday with highs of 30 degrees.

There is a 20 percent chance of snow Sunday night and Monday, the Weather Service said.

This marks a considerably drier December than most years in the past. By this time last year, 24 inches of snow had fallen in the Conconully area, Weather Service statistics show.

Omak-specific data was unavailable.

The last time the Omak area had a Christmas without snow was 2002, the Weather Service reported.
