The National Weather Service has upgraded the recent storm watch to a ‘Winter Storm Warning’ through 6am Tuesday for the coast and northwest interior to include Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties. The forecast now calls for 2 to 7 inches of snow today through tonight. 2-4 mores inches of snow is expected on Tuesday with 5-9 inches possible on Wednesday. Temperatures are expected to be below freezing resulting in icy roads.
Grays Harbor Emergency Management Deputy Director Chuck Wallace urges all citizens to SLOW DOWN while driving on icy roadways and during snow showers. Also, with temperatures near freezing over the next several days, ice could create treacherous driving conditions.
