WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. — The narrow path of cold Fraser Valley outflow air appears to have set up a mini convergence zone that has been accumulating snow since about 4pm today, January 4th.

According to Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) traffic cameras, sections of I-5 south of Slater Road and north of Birch Bay-Lynden Road are bare and wet while areas through Ferndale and Custer are showing obvious accumulations in the roadway.

Roads in the Lynden area are also showing accumulations on traffic cameras.

National Weather Service forecasters say to expect precipitation to continue until late this evening and that it will fall as rain or snow across the county.
