And we bring you come a traffic every 10 minutes on the force from the Dubin Law Group Traffic Center. Here's Marina 02 areas that are really struggling this afternoon. Just don't seem to be getting into any relief include North Bound I five in South Everett because of a collision at 1 12. That's been blocking. It was a couple lanes. Now it's just the right lane. But it left stop and go traffic from 1/30 in north Seattle all the way up to that scene, and I've been keeping track of the travel times this afternoon, out of Seattle up towards the Everett area, and now Oh, boy, it zits two hours and 20 minutes. If you're trying to get up into the every area, so skip by five. If you can just completely skipping, Take Highway 99 or even you could take 5 to 2 up to 5 to 7 if you have to get into Snohomish County or back roads. Another one is North bound for a five out of Bellevue from southeast eighth, where is just solid up to North East 85th. That's also because of a collision that actually happened at 70. It's so for a while it was four lanes blocked. It's the two left general purpose lanes of both toll lanes. So again that's still really struggling South down by five is heavy out of highway 18 towards five South down 167 Heavy and Ellingson and then again at 24 Street East. Next couple traffic at 5 24. Well, that's a struggle. All right. Thanks, Marina. For that The Puget Sound forecast much tamers. We will have clear skies tonight Lows in the thirties. Some clouds wandering in during the day tomorrow with some overnight rain Saturday night into Sunday, but then dryer again.
