Snow delays schools, slows traffic

EVERETT — Spring is beginning to feel a lot like winter.

Snow fell on pockets of Snohomish County Friday morning, delaying classes in two schools districts and slowing traffic for cautious drivers.

The National Weather Service in Seattle reported that the convergence zone stretched from south Whidbey Island across Everett and east to Monroe, bringing some big wet flakes to the region.

Weather observations and state Department of Transportation cameras indicated that an inch or two had fallen across much of the region. It didn’t cause much problem on roads, but was sticking along the shoulders and grassy areas.

Forecasters were predicting the convergence zone would weaken and shift slowly south on Friday and lose steam by the evening, weather service meteorologist Art Gaebel said.

Up to three inches of snow were reported in and around Everett and Mill Creek.

“We will continue to improve as the day wears on,” Gaebel said.

Snow in late March is not unusual, he added.
