Thursday morning’s commute in the Inland Northwest could be impacted by slippery roads, according to the National Weather Service.

From 4 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday, freezing rain will “likely cause untreated roads to be slick and treacherous. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning commute,” according to an advisory issued by the weather service. The chance of precipitation is 90 percent, and about a half inch of snow could accumulate before a glaze of freezing rain forms.

Higher mountains in the region are likely to see heavy snow, the advisory stated.
