Seattle Wakes Up To Snow, 3-6 Inches Expected

By Sean Keeley · January 18th, 2012 · No Comments

Seattle has woken up to a blanket of snow on the ground, although in less drastic amounts as first anticipated. However, roads are still slick and the snow is likely to come down most of the day.

The Seattle Department of Transportation says they plan to keep plows on the streets all day:

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has trucks out working to keep major arterial streets clear. Crews are mostly spreading granular salt and monitoring snow routes for accumulating snow. Please consider transportation options for essential travel and avoid driving if possible. The City continues to urge that drivers use caution during their commute.

You’ll have to wait for another day to see some elephants. The Woodland Park Zoo is closed today due to the snow.

Heads up, SDOT has closed NW 65th Street up to Phinney Ridge is closed. Road closure is 3rd Ave NW to Phinney Ave N.

We’ll add some updates as they come in. Feel free to send your snowy pics as well. Enjoy the day, Fremont!
