SEATTLE -- Drivers, get ready for another round of fog and icy conditions for the morning commute.

Icy roads are blamed for a causing a multi-vehicle crash on I-90 at State Route 18 near North Bend, the same location where several cars crashed Monday morning due to ice. No injuries were reported.

Dense fog paired with freezing temperatures and a thin layer of frost on the ground is creating dangerous driving conditions around Puget Sound, especially in Bellevue and Seattle.

"Visibility is down to 1/4 mile at Sea-Tac, Renton 1/2 mile, Arlington 1/2 mile and Boeing Field 1/4 mile," said KING Meterologist Jim Guy. "Also, many locations are reporting temperatures in the upper 20s, so freezing fog is a possibility once again. Watch out for slippery spots!"

Transportation de-icing trucks spent the night treating many trouble spots like overpasses, ramps and bridges.

Frost was also covering some sidewalk, so walking conditions could also get slippery.

Drivers are advised to drive slowly and allow for extra time for the morning commute.

Share what the commute is like on roads where you live on Facebook. You can also post photos of frosty condition on YourNews.
