Citing the National Weather Service's Seatle Office, the New York Post reported that the temperatures began to rise above freezing on Saturday, allowing for ice to melt on the roads.
Meanwhile, according to AFP, the historic winter storm in the United States has killed nearly 50 people nationwide. The extreme weather even forced the cancellations of more than 15,000 flights in recent days including more than 1,700 on Monday. Moreover, road ice and white-out conditions also led to the temporary closure of some of the nation's busiest transport routes.
