OMAK — The Omak and Okanogan schools will start two hours late this morning due to icy roads caused by freezing rain.
Some parts of Eastern Washington were reporting ice accumulations up to one-tenth of an inch.
Omak Police and the Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office said no accidents had been reported this morning.
A freezing rain advisory — which includes the Okanogan Valley and areas to the east — will be lifted at 10 a.m., said Paul Bos, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
“But just because there is not an advisory doesn’t mean we won’t have nasty weather,” he added.
Most of North Central Washington could see snow or rain today and tonight. The good news is, forecasters don’t expect much precipitation in this area today or through the weekend. Wenatchee will get very little precipitation, he said.
But people traveling over the Cascade Mountains should be prepared for winter driving conditions, he said.
