National Weather Service warns of up to three inches of snow possible

Snow moving into area could complicate evening commute

A winter weather advisory is in effect for our area this evening which will bring cold conditions, potentially dangerous traffic conditions and maybe even some snow.

According to the National Weather Service a weather system moving in from the south will settle over Western Washington tonight, brining with it colder air and as much as three inches of snow across the lowlands by Friday.

Snow is expected to move into southern King County around 4:30 p.m. today, Thursday, and pass through Seattle and Bellevue just in time for the evening commute. Expect locally slick roadways due to a light accumulation of snow.

A more significant band of snow is expected to move into the area between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. with the potential to produce up to three inches of snow.

Chance of snow is 80 percent.

In addition to the snow, temperatures tonight are expected to drop to around 32 degrees with winds of 8 to 16 mph.

Because of the cold temperatures, the city of Renton is keeping its Cold Weather Shelter, located at the Old Chamber Building, 300 Rainier Av. N. The shelter is open to anyone in need. Check-in and registration begin at 8 p.m.
