"For this next round of winter weather in Bonney lake. Charlie Harger, KOMO news. King County metro is limiting services over the next couple of days to their emergency.

Komo news time is two or four times. Taking a look at area roads this Sunday afternoon, the calm before the storm with Evanston, and it is looking common. Their rate now roadways relatively not too bad. Overall, no blocking issues that's for certain on I five through our area. You're looking clear end to end as well right now. No issues on your lake bridges taking a look at our mountain passes. We do have traction tires advised heading over Stevens pass complex on ice on the roadway there. White pass traction tires also advise there, the snow the roadways Barron. Wet snow and slush in places there. No restrictions over Snoqualmie pass at this time. Our next report is that to fourteen. Don takes a look at our forecast. More active weather moving through western Washington. Snow showers at times this afternoon, we could see two to even three inches of new snow by the time. We get to the overnight hours, but that won't add up to much compared to what we're gonna get. Tomorrow's have two systems coming through today. Highs right around freezing tomorrow. Maybe a few degrees warmer, but that warmer air could cause some freezing rain at times on Monday afternoon as another system moves on through bringing us more snowfall that system could bring three to even five inches of snow by Tuesday morning in the KOMO weather center.

So how many routes have you scaled back on how many buses are not an operation that normally would be. Usually we have over two hundred routes and now we're down to about sixty routes and their shuttle, and so it's about forty nine of our basic routes. We have those rapid ride routes. They're in service. We have a number of routes that circle Seattle from the east side. But it's definitely a reduced level of service. So for folks who rely on transit most hoping that we're serving them as best we can everybody else. We're really hoping that they're able to hunker down and get through this weather Saturday and Sunday are one thing. But what about Monday when people are trying to get back to work. Absolutely. It's gonna be a tricky thing. So we're going to be keeping an eye on the forecast, and we need to make a decision. Probably tomorrow how much service can we really provide? And so for people who are looking and thinking about how Monday gonna go from my commute important for them to understand. What are the road conditions between their community where their job is? And what steps can take maybe to get closer to their job or making plans and alternate plans, if they can't drive or maybe it's the bus isn't going to be able to serve them and other than tuning into KOMO News Radio one thousand AM and ninety seven seven FM. How can the riders get information? When you make that decision and figure out if it's going to affect them. Well, everybody can go to metro winter dot com. And that's the latest information is about emergency snow snow network. It also has information about our our snow reroute. For transit alerts because then you're going to get a text in the Email to your personal Email address and data let you know what's going on with your route.
