Snow arrives in Snohomish County, with freezing temps to come

Across the area, snow fell Sunday and was expected to continue through Monday morning.

EVERETT — Snow fell and stuck across Snohomish County, making for more-hazardous-than-usual driving on I-5 in spots Sunday.

In areas north and east of the county, the temperature hovered around freezing at 32 degrees during the afternoon. It was a marked drop from the unseasonably warm winter so far.

It caused some issues for Community Transit. The public transportation service had to enact snow routes for its 109, 209, 220, 222, 240, and 280 routes in Arlington/Smokey Point, Lake Stevens, Snohomish and Stanwood.

But temperatures were forecast to drop even further to the high 20s overnight. That means whatever snow fell and melted could freeze and make for a slick, dangerous Monday morning commute.

Road crews from cities, the county and state Department of Transportation were set to plow and treat the major streets.

Between 1 and 3 inches was likely to accumulate overnight and Monday morning.
