    Snow covered trees surround Lake Roesiger Tuesday morning.

EVERETT -- Snohomish County should be mostly snow-free for the rest of the week, according to the National Weather Service in Seattle.
A few flakes might fall Wednesday morning, but they'll probably be mixed in with plenty of rain, meteorologist Art Gaebel said.
That's good news for commuters.
A blast of hail hit parts of Everett during the Monday evening commute, causing spinouts and jamming up traffic along I-5 and Evergreen Way. No serious collisions were reported.
Some places around the county got a trace of snow overnight Monday, others a thin coating, Gaebel said.
"It was kind of hit-and-miss," he said.
No significant snow or flooding is forecast here in the days ahead.
It's a different story in the mountains, though. Stevens Pass could see up to three feet of fresh snowfall by Thursday, Gaebel said.
Coastal flooding warnings also have wrapped up, though some areas near the water could see high winds.
Meanwhile, the storm that drifted over Everett on Monday night in some areas "froze roads and made driving conditions treacherous," police officer Aaron Snell said.
Many commuters reported getting mired in the mess.
I-5 was hit worst by the hail between Broadway and 41st Street, said trooper Mark Francis with the Washington State Patrol.
"It caused numerous vehicles to spin out right about there on southbound I-5," he said.
Meanwhile, in the Silvana area, only a small sprinkling of frost showed Tuesday morning on farmlands along the Stillaguamish River.
Most local schools stayed on regular schedules Tuesday.
