TRAFFIC ALERT: Snow has arrived in north Ferndale 

By 1pm, snow reported in the east Whatcom County areas had made its way to the Custer area.

Slick roads would be the likely cause of several vehicles off the road on I-5 around the Grandview Road interchange and one vehicle that ended up halfway submerged in an overflowing ditch alongside Portal Way, south of Grandview.

A snowplow could be seen clearing I-5 in both the southbound and northbound lanes north of the Grandview interchange.

By 2pm, northbound I-5 was backed up from Portal Way to past the Custer Rest Area due to lane closures as workers retrieved multiple vehicles from the side of the road and the median.
