Heavy snowfall creates hazardous driving conditions

SPOKANE, Wash. - Heavy snowfall across the Inland Northwest is creating hazardous driving conditions.

There have been multiple slides-offs and crashes everywhere from Interstate 90 to Division Street to the Argonne hill in Spokane Valley, to the West Plains.
The City of Spokane says crews are out plowing and sanding. They say more crews are being called in to handle the snow.


We've already received several calls into the Kxly4 newsroom, from people angry about how quickly road conditions deteriorated and that there are no plows in sight.
Law enforcement says if you're driving, slow down and give yourself plenty of room between you and the next vehicle. 
A winter weather advisory is in effect until 4 p.m. Friday afternoon. The Spokane area could see a little rain mixed in with the snow. Temperatures are expected to drop below freezing Friday night, so be sure to watch for icy conditions.
On Saturday, watch for freezing fog. We could also see more snow Saturday night.
