Slick roads are causing delays for Spokane Public School buses this morning, the district said.

Though classes will begin on time, students and parents can expect half-hour delays on middle school routes and delays up to an hour for elementary schools. High school routes should be unaffected, the district said.

Traffic is moving well on Interstate 90. Spokane Police reported a few accidents on side streets, including a three-vehicle collision at North Argonne Road and East Upriver Drive that blocked northbound lanes of Argonne as crews cleared the scene.

National Weather Service forecasters say there’s a 20-percent chance of continued snow today and tonight, with dry and slightly warmer temperatures expected until the weekend. A little more than three inches of snow fell yesterday at Spokane International Airport, taking the monthly total snowfall there over a foot with a little less than a week to go.
