November Snow ❄️
Lake Stevens hit with 2-6” overnight Tuesday
BREAKING: Lake Stevens School District Two Hours Late No AM preschool, AM/PM Buses on snow routes. No out-of-district transportation all day, including Sno-Isle.
PREVIOUS: A hit-or-miss snowstorm we’ve been tracking for nearly a week largely delivered, blanketing Lake Stevens with a rough average of about 4” overnight.
J425 hit the roads early this AM and measured 5” at Lake Stevens High School, perched at 460’ feet of elevation.
Frontier Village had a sloppy 3” melting towards 2” — therein highlighting the marginal nature of the event: an extra 150’ feet in elevation made it 30.9 degrees at the high school and 33.8 at Frontier Village during heavy snow early this AM.
At the high school, the roads were frozen with evidence of a recent plow run piled to the side.
Thoroughfares in the north end of town including 20th and Cedar Road were blocked off with City signage…closed we suppose until de-icer, sand or warmer temps are available.
Evidence of City plow action was visible on Vernon Road and Marketplace this morning. Not so much on the aforementioned 20th, which was evidently closed instead. Probably not a big deal at this hour.
The State had yet to hit SR-9 and wary travelers negotiated a soupy mush of 1.5” across the state highway. Unsanded wet snow is treacherous to drive on, drivers should take extra caution this AM.
You can stay up to date on the City’s plowing priorities here:
The forecast calls for continuing flurries from around 7 am to noon with clearing after. Temperatures should dip below freezing this afternoon before another band of snow showers is likely tonight into Thursday, with the pattern repeating Friday night into Saturday.
We’ll keep you posted on road or school closures as info becomes available. Here’s a link to the King 5 master school closings and delays list.
As far as current school closure info, Lake Stevens is two hours late (see above), Archbishop Murphy, Everett and Monroe are already in with two hour delays posted — and Edmonds, which got hit with as much as 8” and spotty power outages, is closed.
