Ferndale area wakes to snow-covered roads with more snow in the forecast

2 to 4 inches of fresh light and dry windblown snow covers most of the Ferndale area making driving or even getting out of driveways a challenge for many as they attempt to head out today, Monday, February 11th.

City and county crews worked overnight plowing, sanding and keeping priority routes clear as gusty winds continued to blow the snow around.

Some less-traveled roads were reported to be blocked by snow drifts. Based on local traffic cameras, roads to the north appeared to have more compact snow on them than those to the south.

Ferndale School District officials announced last night that classes at all schools would be canceled today. Several other businesses and agencies also announced closures or delayed openings as a result of the weather.
