Snow, ice cause disruptions in many Western states
SEATTLE (AP) — Winter weather closed schools and disrupted travel across much of the West, with ice and snow stretching from Seattle to Arizona.
The Pacific Northwest shivered Tuesday under colder-than-normal conditions as snow and treacherous conditions led to another day of school closures.
Winter weather also disrupted parts of California, Utah and Arizona. A winter storm warning meant a snow day for many students in Southern California mountain communities. Much of Utah braced for heavy snows and Northern Arizona braced for a coming storm.
The greater Portland, Oregon, area saw snow overnight Monday and schools were closed in Portland, Vancouver, Washington, and other areas.
Temperatures that plunged into the teens in the Seattle area kept roads icy and caused schools to again close in Washington’s largest city.
