    Original 2/21/18 post:

    The latest forecast models show that Bellevue has a chance of mixed rain/snow showers late this afternoon and into tonight. Accumulations should be low, but temperatures dropping into the 20’s overnight raise the chances for icy roadways.

    Drivers and pedestrians should travel with caution.

    Snow and Ice response equipment is loaded and on stand-by for deployment. Both Transportation and Utilities are on extended shifts through the night and into tomorrow afternoon.
