Schools running late; more cold, snow in forecast

This morning’s commute through record-low temperatures has been mostly trouble free as drivers took to slick roads in the midst of an Artic-flavored cold snap.
Most school districts in Snohomish County were starting two hours late and many buses were operating on snow routes.
Washington State Patrol trooper Keith Leary said it could have been worse.
“The freeways are in pretty darn good shape compared to the side streets,” he said.
Compact snow and ice still cover many of the area’s roads.
“Take it slow,” National Weather Service forecaster Chris Burke said.
A new record low for this date was set at Sea-Tac this morning where the temperature dropped to 19 degrees, one degree below the previous record set in 1964.
At Paine Field, the temperature also sank to 19.
Drivers shouldn’t count on the warmer temperatures today to melt away any ice, Burke said.
Despite clear, sunny skies, temperatures aren’t expected to top freezing.
More snow is forecast for Tuesday night and Wednesday and it likely will be more than a dusting, Burke said.
“It does look like inches,” he said.
Sub-freezing temperatures are expected to stick around through next weekend.
