Weather Advisory Could Mean Snow?
Weather Advisory issued this morning indicates…gulp…possible SNOW in the picture?
… Light snow accumulations possible on the hills of western Washington… particularly on Friday and Friday night…
A quick one-half to one inch of snow is possible today and this evening on hilltops above 500 feet as random Showers Pass across western Washington.
A low pressure system will move to near the coast on Friday morning… bringing heavier and more widespread precipitation to western Washington.
Over Clallam and Jefferson counties… 1 to 3 inches of snow could occur late tonight and Friday morning away from the water and above about 300 feet of elevation. This applies to both the eastern and western portions of these counties.
Along the I-5 corridor through western Washington on Friday… wet snow will mix with rain on higher hilltops… where localized accumulations of one or two inches are possible. On Friday night… a Puget Sound convergence zone could then develop over Snohomish or northern King County. This would bring the potential of 1 or 2 additional inches of snow for hilltops in the Metro area and in the Cascade foothills.
The forecast for Friday and Friday night is largely based on a weather system that had not yet developed as of early Thursday morning… so details are subject to change. Check back later today for the latest weather updates from the National Weather Service.
