Note: For those of you new to the Sky Valley Chronicle, what follows is the only current, up to date weather information published today and indeed anytime this weekend by ANY Sky Valley News source.

(REGIONAL) -- The cold weather system now dropping into Western Washington from the Yukon has prompted county officials to issue warnings and to open special shelters across the Puget Sound region.
This particular cold front will bring the coldest temperatures of the Winter so far and it is expected to stick around for a few days.
Nighttime lows are expected into the 20s and teens, depending upon where you live in the Sky Valley and elsewhere, and in urban areas the frigid temps have prompted emergency organizations to open cold weather shelters (see shelter opening story in the BREAKING NEWS section of Sky Valley Chronicle) and the state patrol to warn of dangerous, icy road conditions.
The new Arctic cold front started moving through the area from the north Saturday night, bringing windy conditions and colder temperatures to most of Western Washington.
SKY VALLEY: Here in the Sky Valley the coldest spot this morning as of 4:30 a.m. was Baring where they had 21 degrees and light snow. Next coldest was Snohomish at 28 degrees. Monroe had 31 degrees and Gold Bar, Sultan, Index and Skykomish all had 37 degrees.
