Use caution driving during cold weather

The National Weather Service in Seattle continues to forecast very cold night time temperatures for the county.

Many areas may see temperatures drop to the low to mid 20’s and even the coast will see temperatures reach the freezing mark.

The arrival of cold temperatures may bring snow showers to all areas of the county, even the coast.

An approaching Pacific storm system arriving Thursday may bring snow, windy conditions and rain.

Widespread snow accumulations of 1”- 3” may occur, however Thursday is still a few days away and conditions may evolve.

Grays Harbor Emergency Management says roadways will be their biggest concern as they could become very slippery during the early morning hours and last well past the work commute hours.

Black will become an issue each night and early morning this week, making driving extremely hazardous.

Use extreme caution while driving on roadways during periods of snow showers, icy conditions and possible slush build-up.

Remember to check on neighbors who may need assistance during this period of very cold weather.
