Winter Weather Update: Additional Snow Expected, Emergency Shelters Available

The National Weather Service expects an additional 1 to 3 inches of snow accumulation beginning late tonight and continuing into Thursday morning’s commute. The City of Seattle will face extremely cold temperatures and risk of icy conditions into the new year. 

 With significant snow accumulation, the City of Seattle is urging residents and businesses: 

  • Avoid and postpone road travel whenever possible. 
  • Salt and shovel sidewalks adjacent to their property to ensure they remain safe and accessible. Not only is it the law; it is the right thing to do.
