The National Weather Service in Spokane posted this image Tuesday morning predicting areas of heavy snow.

The National Weather Service is warning us to expect heavy snowfall from Tuesday night through Wednesday night, Nov. 29-30, that may make travel "difficult or impossible."

An alert issued early Tuesday morning says people in the area from Highway 28 north, reaching to Wauconda and Republic, can expect 5-9 inches of snow, with mountain areas getting up to 10-15 inches.

The snow is expected to start about 7 p.m. Tuesday night.

Areas south of Highway 28 (the highway that connects Soap Lake and Odessa) can expect 2-4 inches.

"Breezy winds" on Wednesday will likely lead to snow drifts and bad visibility.

Here's the alert:

9 inches north of Highway 28. In the mountains 10 to 15 inches of snow. Areas south of Highway 28 will see 2 to 4 inches of snow.

* WHEN...From 7 PM this evening to 4 PM PST Wednesday.

* IMPACTS...Travel could be very difficult to impossible. The Wednesday morning commute will be impacted.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Breezy winds Wednesday will lead to areas of blowing and drifting snow significantly reducing visibilities and creating snow drifts.
