SPOKANE, Wash. -- The first snow hit the Spokane area early Friday.
A winter weather advisory is currently in effect for the Northern Panhandle of Idaho and the surrounding area of Spokane.
Snow is responsible for wrecks across the bi-state region, including injury crashes on Highway 41 in North Idaho and on I-90 near the City of Sprague.
Forecasters say another inch of snow Friday may add to the inch or two on the ground in Spokane and other areas of northeast Washington.
The National Weather Service says the snow should end late Friday but cold temperatures will remain through the weekend with highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s in Eastern Washington.
Temperatures also are below normal in Western Washington, with lows Friday night and Saturday night below freezing in much of the area. Forecasters say skies should be clear until another front arrives Sunday.
