Roads still wet from Monday’s snowfall could turn icy as temperatures drop overnight, a meteorologist said.
While the snow that falls in King County Monday is unlikely to accumulate, it could turn roads slick with ice as temperatures drop overnight.
The forecast calls for light snowfall throughout the region Monday, but little accumulation in the lowland areas, said National Weather Service meteorologist Danny Mercer.
“Lots of people in the area could see snowflakes, but as far as travel impacts, that won’t likely be until tomorrow,” Mercer said Monday morning.
Temperatures in the Seattle metro area are expected to fall just below 30 degrees Monday night. That could freeze lingering water on roadways, making the Tuesday morning commute difficult in some areas, Mercer said.
