3 Snowday 2.13.21

Snowy scenes from Lincoln Hill, Stanwood, on Saturday, Feb. 13, 2021.

From sledding to snowboarding to shoveling to spin-outs, Saturday was a snow day in the Stanwood-Camano area. 

Snow totals varied throughout the county, but some areas received up to 10 inches overnight into Saturday, and snow continued to fall steadily throughout the day and into the evening.

A winter storm warning was scheduled to remain into effect through Saturday night.

An additional 1 inch or less of snow is forecast for Stanwood-Camano on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service's Seattle office.

As warm air pushes north, the snow is likely to change to rain by Monday morning, and the transition may include a mix of heavy wet snow and sleet, the weather service said.

Travel is expected to remain difficult on Sunday. The state Department of Transportation advised travelers to stay home if they can, and if they can't, take it slow on the roads and give other drivers plenty of space. 

From Friday afternoon to Saturday afternoon, State Patrol troopers handled 112 crashes in Snohomish County, 34 in Skagit County and 10 in Island County, according to a Tweet from trooper Rocky Oliphant.
