Inclement Weather Update; Jan. 15
Posted on 01/15/2020
Image of SnowThe City continues to closely monitor the inclement weather moving into the week. Crews are continuing to work around the clock to assist in further snow removal and public safety measures.

We are expecting snow to continue with accumulation from 1-3 inches, tapering off into the early evening hours. Temperatures are expected to be above freezing overnight which should help keep roads in passable condition for the morning commute. Melting snow does cause an even greater risk of sliding in icy spots. Please take extra care in your commute.

Wind may also be a factor this evening, with wind gusts expected to be upwards of 35 mph throughout the county. For already heavily weighted trees this means a high likelihood of breaking branches and therefore, a high likelihood of power outages. To report power outages please go to outagemap.snopud.com or call 425-783-1001.

Those who are unable to get to essential resources and services due to the snow, please utilize the Snohomish County non-emergency number for assistance at 425-407-3999. If there is an immediate threat to life or property, call 911.

If you are in need of a cold weather shelter or know someone who is. Please dial 211 or visit www.snohd.org/cold.

Please take time to check on neighbors and family members this evening. Additional information will be provided as it is available.
