A Seattle-area travel advisory has been issued for a water storm brewing Saturday.
Seattle has issued a travel advisory for Saturday night and Sunday morning due to the flooding of Lake Washington.
The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and the City of Seattle have canceled flights and closed downtown Seattle for the day.
Seattle officials say a rain event is expected this weekend, but are still assessing how severe it is and how long it will take to clear the area.
The rain event could cause significant flooding, especially in the north and southeast of the metro area.
It could last several hours, according to the Seattle Department of Transportation.
The storm is expected to be heavy, with a flash flood warning issued for parts of Lake Union, Puget Sound, the Washington River and in Washington State.
Heavy rain and snow will also be falling in Seattle and Spokane.
Rain and snow are expected to continue to fall over parts of Washington State on Saturday.
