Morning commute drivers face traffic jams


SPOKANE, Wash. — Drivers are in for a slushy road Friday morning.

Snow fell overnight in the lowlands, but temperatures are starting to rise a bit, helping the snow melt. Taller heights are 4-6 inches.

Crews from the City of Spokane and the Washington State Department of Transportation are clearing the roads.

Strong winds are expected this afternoon with gusts of 30-40 mph until 5pm. Winds will increase further starting at 5pm and continuing into early Saturday morning.

A winter storm warning remains in effect for much of the Idaho Panhandle and north-central Washington. A high wind warning is in effect for people in Spokane, west to the Chelan area and down to Walla Walla and Lewiston.

Whoever can stay home must stay home. If you need to pull over, make sure you slow down and allow extra time to get to your destination.
