A little less than 2 inches of snow fell around Spokane last night, prompting warnings to slow down for Wednesday’s morning commute.

Most students still are scheduled to go to school on time in Spokane County. An exception is PRIDE Prep Public Charter School, which has a two-hour delay.

Several districts outside Spokane County have delayed classes, and Washington State University in Pullman canceled all classes.

St. John-Endicott, Odessa, Harrington and Wellpinit school districts are among districts with two-hour delays. A more complete list of school delays can be found here.

The National Weather Service measured 1.4 inches at 6 a.m. from snow overnight outside its office on the West Plains. That’s on top of the 1/2 inch that fell Tuesday, said Ron Miller, weather service meteorologist.

Another couple inches are expected to fall during the day Wednesday, Miller said. Snow will start to turn to rain about 2 p.m. in downtown Spokane, and precipitation will stop around 6 p.m.
