[ARCHIVED] Snohomish County Winter Weather Update for February 10

What’s projected for Monday and Tuesday: A significant storm with projected accumulations of 6-8" in Snohomish County.

Day 3 Sunday, Feb. 10 Update 

What’s happening Sunday night through Monday morning: As you can see, the National Weather Service's forecast of  another snow event was correct, so expect around 2-4" of snow through Monday morning. The  good news is the winds are forecast to be low (~10 mph) and PUD reported that much of the has fallen off or melted from snow-loaded tree branches. This lessens the likelihood of power outages for the next 24 hours. 


What’s projected for Monday and Tuesday: A significant storm with projected accumulations of 6-8" in Snohomish County.   See DEM's message below.
