SPOKANE, Wash. -

A batch of fresh snow on Monday morning led to multiple slide-offs and crashes in and around Spokane.

A winter weather advisory was in effect for Eastern Washington eight counties, including Spokane County, until 10 a.m. One to three inches are expected to fall in the area.

Outlying areas of Spokane County were particularly troublesome for drivers. There were multiple slide-offs on Highway 2, near Spokane International Airport. There were also crashes on Highway 395, north of Spokane.
