More snow expected during Friday evening commute

Snow in the lowlands may mean a somewhat messy commute in King County on Friday evening, February 23. The National Weather Service in Seattle expects accumulation of about an inch before precipitation turns over to rain. The Cascade foothills of eastern King County will see up to six inches of snow, while the mountain passes can expect a foot or more.
