Snow could fall, but it won’t be worth a snowball

The National Weather Service forecast lowering temperatures and snow levels Thanksgiving Day week.

EVERETT — Don’t expect any cancelled classes, but some snow may fall around Snohomish County as temperatures drop Monday and Tuesday.

The accumulation in the lowlands was expected to be less than 1 inch, if at all, with snow levels hovering around 2,000 feet, the National Weather Service said.

Anyone heading across the Cascades should be prepared for more, however. The Washington State Department of Transportation recommends slower speeds, more space between vehicles, having traction tires and chains, an ice scraper and a snow brush, and other items in case the vehicle gets stuck or stranded. People commuting through the mountain passes can check the conditions and any closures at www.wsdot.com/traffic/passes.

Overnight lows were projected to be below freezing for much of Western Washington this week, which could make roads icy.
