The Ferndale School District announced this morning that classes at all Ferndale schools will begin 2 hours later than their regular start times this morning. In addition, all morning activities have been canceled today. According to the District transportation department, this means buses will be running two hours late as well (on regular routes).
Yesterday’s accumulated wet snow combined with overnight temperatures in the upper 20s have made for treacherous driving conditions this morning. The National Weather Service Seattle office issued a Special Weather Statement this morning warning, “motorists should take it easy during the commute this morning and be prepared if any icy spots are encountered.”
Drivers are advised to adjust their speed and distance for these winter driving conditions.
