Snow Stopping But Thursday Will Be Icy

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

It looks like the snowfall is just about over. Forecasts call for slight snow overnight followed by freezing rain, which will lead into a very icy Thursday.

As such, SDOT is advising commuters to continue taking it easy. Consider public transportation or consider staggering your commute time. Also make sure you’re aware of any closed streets. (SDOT) crews will continue plowing and salting major arterials and transit routes in preparation for the morning commute.

King County Metro Transit will keep its buses chained up and on snow routing for a fifth straight day. Riders should sign up for Transit Alerts to receive notification of route cancellations, but also check the service status before traveling at  www.kingcounty.gov/metro/snow.

All Seattle schools and after-school activities have already been cancelled for Thursday.
