No serious accidents were recorded over the weekend. Meanwhile, the frigid temperatures are here for at least all week, according to the National Weather Service. In fact, they may go lower at the end of the week.

The Police Department said they had only one accident reported over the weekend. No one was injured. But, 14 cars were reported off the road due to ice and snow.

Burlington airport recorded a low of just 19 degrees Monday morning and tonight's low is expected to be about the same. Look for a low of 20 in Anacortes Monday night, 11 in Mount Vernon and 6 degrees in Marblemount. Daytime highs aren't expected to get above freezing on Fidalgo Island.

Meanwhile, the weather service says a new storm is brewing off the northern British Columbia coast that will bring more snow to our area on Wednesday.  Over last Saturday and Sunday, between two and four inches of snow fell on Fidalgo Island.

The continuing low temperatures means icy roads and that means driviing will continue to be hazardous.  While the ice and snow make life difficult for many of us, it allowed Mount Baker Ski Area to open Sunday, limited to main routes.
