Weather Alert Updates

Last Updated:

Friday, January 17, 2020 - 3:12 p.m.

Please check here for regular weather-related updates from the City of Redmond.

City staff is currently treating and plowing roadways around the clock to keep our roads safe. We are prioritizing snow and ice response based on the following: hospitals, arterials leading in and out of Redmond, arterials located on hills within Redmond, and then all other arterials within Redmond. Neighborhood streets are typically not plowed. If conditions warrant, neighborhood plowing will occur once priority plow routes are completely cleared. Please be aware that we are unable to respond to individual requests for plowing.

Please visit Redmond.gov/SnowIce for more details on Redmond’s snow and ice response program.

Be aware of the weather conditions and stay connected to the information you need most.

Be Aware of Snowmelt Hazards

As the snow begins to melt, localized flooding, tree damage and landslide threats increase.

  • To help avoid localized flooding, please clear all storm drains of snow and debris around your homes and businesses.
  • Never stand under trees or other structures with ice or heavy, wet snow. Portions of snow, ice and trees may fall due to the weight.
  • Melting snow and increased rainfall seep into soil, increasing the threat of landslides. Be aware of this risk and stay informed on the weather.
