Weather: Though not much snow fell on the Seattle area overnight, that’s expected to change — and soon. Meteorologists are predicting snow on and off throughout the day and night, with up to a couple new inches possible, depending on the specific location. The forecast calls for a daytime high of 36, with some morning fog and light wind throughout the day. Snow should continue overnight and into Tuesday… and Wednesday. In short, we’ve got a long way to go. The current details.
Traffic: The concern this morning is road conditions, not traffic. While the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday will give some commuters the day off, others will have to navigate potentially slick roads. The state Department of Transportation says most major roads are wet and bare this morning, which is way better than icy. The spots to watch out for include the roads around Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood, the Marysville area and the Bothell-Everett highway near Bothell. Take it slow. The map and the cams.
Metro buses: Not only are the buses running on a snow schedule again this morning, but on a holiday schedule as well. Here is a link to what that means for your bus.
