Despite the snowfall, the City of Edmonds said Monday morning that all arterials were open and in good shape — but motorists should beware that icy roads are likely overnight, depending on weather conditions.

“We’ve had two plow truck active since 11 p.m. last night,” said Tod Moles, the city’s street/storm manager.  “We have all four plows out pushing slush in prep for what could be a very slick night tonight, Moles said, adding that the city planned to add anti-ice to the roads later in the day.

Moles said that Monday night and possibly Tuesday evening are “stacking up to be very difficult with the potential for black ice conditions.”

Weather forecasters also said that additional snow is possible Monday night, although warmer temperatures are expected by Tuesday afternoon.
