Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Many of us saw snow on the ground this morning as winter weather moved into the Puget Sound lowlands. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for portions of King County from 1 p.m. Tuesday until Wednesday, warning of potential snow accumulation of up to four inches of snow. According to local weather reports, this snow is expected to turn to rain later in the day on Tuesday, but another round of lowland snow is possible Wednesday night into Thursday and on Friday night, with cold temperatures sticking around through early next week. 

As we navigate more wintery weather in the days ahead, here are some resources to help you stay safe:

  • For a map of snow routes, click here.
  • Use the Winter Weather Response map to see plowed and sanded roads.
  • Stay up to date with closures, delays, projects, and available transportation aid through the King County Road Services website.
  • For the fastest updates on road conditions, sign up for road alerts or follow the King County Road Services Division on Twitter at @kcroads.
  • Get help with road maintenance and traffic safety issues by calling the 24/7 Road Helpline at 206-477-8100 or 1-800-527-6237.
  • In the case of a power outage, please call Puget Sound Energy at 1-888-225-5773. You also can report the outage online and check PSE’s map of outages.

For those of you who live or travel in unincorporated areas, King County Roads Services Division crews are working around the clock to treat snow and ice along our snow routes. Their service is critical for unincorporated residents who rely on clear and safe roads, which is why I’ve worked to increase the mileage of our snow routes and provide funding for covered sheds to store sand and salt, which allows for a quicker treatment of roads in poor condition. Thank you to our dedicated Roads workers who minimize the impact of snow and ice as much as possible! If you have non-emergency questions or concerns during this time, please feel free to reach out to me at

Stay safe,
