The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 1am - 10am Friday morning. The Winter Storm Watch has been ended. Current forecasts seem to agree that Northern King County (that's us) and Snohomish county may receive 1-5 inches of wet, slushy snow for a storm total. I am expecting the changeover to rain for our area to happen between 10am - Noon. It's possible the changeover could take until 1-2pm but not likely. The bulk of the accumulating snow appears to be likely in the 7-9am range making the morning commute quite a hazard.

Afternoon and evening temperatures are expected to reach the mid 40's after the changeover from snow to rain. Any snow that sticks will melt off quickly as the afternoon progresses. Roads should be clear by the time the afternoon commute starts.

If you are driving in the morning hours, prepare for winter driving conditions. Make sure you have a flashlight, blanket, food and water in your car in case of an emergency. Shovels or cat litter/sand can be helpful too for getting vehicles unstuck.
