911 call receivers and dispatchers have been busy along with law enforcement and aid units tonight as they have been dealing with several crashes along I-5 and throughout western Whatcom County since the evening commute began.
Fortunately, injuries have been reported to be few and minor as vehicles have been sliding off roads. There has been more than one instance of rollover crashes.
Snow flurries began about 1pm in the Ferndale area and, although light, have been persistent through the afternoon and into the evening.
Forecasters say subfreezing cold temperatures can be expected to continue into tomorrow while snow is expected to end as skies clear overnight. Snow accumulation of less than a half inch is possible.
Tomorrow’s weather forecast is for clear skies and a high of 40°. Frozen precipitation on the ground tonight will likely remain making some roads slick during the morning commute.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time to get where they are going, slow down and maintain greater distances between vehicles under these conditions.
