Assignment: Predict the 24 hr precipitation amount (inches) for Elk City, ID (KP69)

Friday looks like it will be a very nasty day in northern Idaho, with heavy snow and high winds along the I-90 corridor, and the possibility of freezing rain to the south. Let's predict the accumulated precip (liquid equivalent) for KP69, which we have as Elk City, Idaho, but it really may be closer to Lowell, Idaho. The forecast there is for temperatures a little above freezing, maybe enough to keep everything as cold rain instead of the dreaded freezing rain.
