Lynnwood gets its first snow of the season
by Luke Putvin
As of 7:30 AM on January 13, over 6,000 are without power in Snohomish County due to the winter weather that has hit the area. Most of the outages, however, are not in Lynnwood but further north, closer to Everett.
Lynnwood got less snow than surrounding areas, only about an average of four inches throughout the city, while places like Poulsbo saw eight inches.
Though the bulk of the snow is over, Community Transit buses are on snow routes, and Edmonds School District has cancelled operations today. Winter Storm Warnings have ended, and Winter Weather Advisories are only in place until 8 AM.
Make sure to exercise caution when driving in snowy conditions. Additionally, be sure to brush all snow off of your car so it will not fly off and hit others while on the road. It is also advised during the cold weather to check your tire pressure regularly and swap your tires out for winter tires if you have them.
Today’s high in the area is expected to be 33 degrees, and there is a chance of more AM snow showers. Tonight’s low is expected to be 26 degrees, so watch out for icy roads in the morning.
