Some sunshine and warmer temperatures today helped clear snow and ice off the region’s main freeways, but ice is expected as the sun sets.
Drivers headed home this evening should slow down and leave plenty of space between vehicles, said Jeff Switzer, a state Department of Transportation spokesman.
He also said people need to clean accumulated snow off their vehicles before they drive. The snow can cause problems for other drivers and adds to the mess crews need to clean up.
More ice is expected for the morning commute and then officials hope some roads will dry up Tuesday, he said.
That could be just in time for the next winter storm.
The National Weather Service in Seattle is forecasting more snow Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
