SPOKANE, Wash.— After mild temperatures the past few weeks, Spokane is expecting to see snow Tuesday night that will continue on to Wednesday. 

Plow crews will be out on the roads tomorrow to regulate the snow conditions.

All four county districts will be plowed, starting with hospitals, bus routes, and major roads that rely on public safety, officials said.

County officials said they plan to spray granular deicer along with sand on the road to prevent the snow from compacting and freezing.
