Weather, Roads, & More

Snow and Freezing Rain Predicted

A weather alert was issued today for snow and freezing rain to begin Thursday night, 12/22, and continue into Friday, 12/23. Accumulation of up to 6" is possible.

Please use caution when driving or stay home if possible. For the latest updates on road conditions, visit or call the SVCA Hotline at 360-746-7010.

Abandoned Cars

Currently, many of Sudden Valley's roads are hard-packed snow/ice, and driving conditions are treacherous. There are multiple reports of vehicles in the ditches, some partially blocking roadways. All local towing services are unable to work in Sudden Valley given the current road conditions, so abandoned vehicles may be left on the roadways for hours or possibly days. Road conditions are poor throughout Whatcom County. Please avoid driving if at all possible. Vehicles blocking the plows or emergency services can have a devastating effect.

Check for updates or call the SVCA Hotline at 360-746-7010.

Road Clearing & Sanding

Be aware that plowing will not eliminate all snow from the road. Plowing down to the asphalt damages both the road and the plow.

Heavier amounts of sand have been applied to primary roads. Other roads have had less sand applied. Since heavy rains are forecast for later this week, large amounts of sand could be washed into ditches and culverts, adding to the possibility of flooding.
