Uh, oh, the city is preparing for snow this weekend. Does that mean it actually could snow? (Many of you would like that, based on our poll from yesterday.)
This is from a statement put out by Marybeth Turner with Seattle’s Department of Transportation:
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will have Street Maintenance crews on standby for snow response this weekend and early next week due to a forecast of possible snow showers below 500 feet.
Throughout this week Street Maintenance crews have been treating areas prone to roadway frost and ice to improve conditions for drivers, and will continue this operation while nighttime temperatures remain low. SDOT will also continue to carefully monitor weather forecasts.
