Snow disrupts schools in Snohomish County; slushy weather to persist

Several school districts delayed classes after 1 or 2 inches fell in most areas. Lows will likely be below freezing Wednesday.

EVERETT — After snow blanketed the Snohomish County lowlands Tuesday, a mixture of flurries and rain is expected to persist throughout the week, according to the National Weather Service.

Overnight lows were expected to hover in the low- to mid-30s for the rest of the week. The coldest temperatures were expected Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, potentially dropping to 25 degrees in Everett.

With the exception of Wednesday, periods of rain or snow mixed with rain were predicted into next week, according to the weather service.

The pattern will consist of a light snow and rain mix at night that turns into rain as the weather gets warmer, meteorologist Jacob DeFlitch said.

While it’s unlikely to stick in most areas, the slushy and wet snow may make it tough for drivers to see, DeFlitch said. The cold temperatures bring a chance for icy roads, especially closer to the Cascades, like in Granite Falls and Darrington.

The forecast comes after Snohomish County residents saw 1 to 2 inches of snow Tuesday.

The Arlington, Granite Falls, Marysville and Lake Stevens school districts canceled classes and after-school activities and events.
