It's NOTAMed unavailable, but that doesn't really answer the original question.  I tried calling via my phone just now and there was no answer.

Statement was quoted on FB, via a FATPNW member to the effect that the AWOS is down and expected to be repaired by sometime Monday.

From an email sent out by the KAWO airport management last thursday:
"Good Morning,
 As you may be aware, the AWOS has not been operational since this weekend. We spoke with the FAA as they own and maintain the AWOS, and they have stated that they are working on the AWOS and it should be operational by Monday. If anything changes, we will notify you.
