The next snow is expected late Tuesday night, meantime, enjoy the break in the weather. But, despite the break, driving will continue to be hazardous. 

Icicles dripping on Monday was visible evidence of slightly warmer temperatures which melted snow on city streets. That snow re-froze overnight when temperatures dipped as low as 28 in Anacortes.

Snow and ice slowed things down Monday. Mail was late coming into the post office. Food deliveries to the grocery stores was late. Even some newspapers didn’t get delivered. We couldn’t find a Seattle Times Monday morning.

We placed a call to the city requesting a snowplow for our street. It showed up a half-hour later and plowed the street and laid down some sand. Until then the snow was a foot deep.

Burlington airport recorded a low of 30 Tuesday morning and a high of 32 on Monday.

The forecast calls for snow late Tuesday night and Wednesday with an accumulation of 1 to 3 inches. Snow could change to a rain-snow mix around mid-day. For Christmas Day, look for snow showers or a rain-snow mix.
