(SEATTLE, WA.) -- The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 3:20 pm Tuesday until Wed. Nov. 15 at noon for snow in the lower elevations of the Cascade Mountains.
The weather service says to plan for "slippery road conditions" as there may be accumulations of snow from 4 to 8 inches, depending upon location and elevations, in the Cascade mountain areas of Snohomish and King Counties, including U.S. Highway 2 across Stevens Pass and I-90 across Snoqualmie Pass.
The snow level will drop from 3500 feet tonight to 3000 feet on Wednesday.
The advisory says "be prepared for reduced visibilities at times." A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties.
Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.
