The real issue will be the cold temperatures over the next week. Temperatures are predicted to be dangerously low, particularly for anyone unhoused or without heat. Please see the information below about severe weather shelters.

Snow, ice, and cold temperatures can make for dangerous driving conditions. Please stay off the roads if you do not need to be out.

Snow Removal

Shoreline street crews are plowing primary routes. They will continue to work primary routes until the snow stops. Once snow stops and the primary routes are clear, they will then move to secondary routes. Only after primary and secondary roads are clear will we start plowing neighborhood streets.

Please stay off the roads if you can to give crews a chance to clear them.
For more information: Snow and Ice Control Plan

Road Closures

Depending on conditions, the City may post road closure signs on some of our known danger spots. You can see where those are on the Snow Event Closure Map. The City may also need to close other roads due to conditions.

Shoreline Parks

Parks are open; however, we encourage visitors to use caution. Wet, heavy snow can cause tree branches to snap and trees to fall. Please stay out from under trees and avoid forested park areas.
Public Transit

For information about potential delays or changes to services, visit Metro's Service Advisories website or Community Transit's Rider Alerts.
