Hail hits Snohomish County; drivers warned to be careful
Hail dropped this afternoon on Marysville, Lake Stevens and other cities in Eastern Snohomish County, making for an icy Friday commute, according to Washington State Patrol Trooper Mark Francis.
Francis warned people should drive slowly today because rainy, breezy and sometimes icy conditions are forecast to continue into the night. A convergence zone over Snohomish County could end up reaching the northern King County line later tonight, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Mike McFarland.
Anyone planning to drive to the Cascades can plan on icy roads tonight and early Saturday. McFarland said snow levels could drop to 1,000 feet overnight. The latest front is expected to dump another foot of snow on the Cascades by Saturday morning.
