Yes, That *Is* Snow. And Yes, It’s Almost April.
The “Snow Advisory” remains in effect until 5pm this afternoon.
From the Weather Service:
A mix of rain and snow will continue into the afternoon with some accumulations over hilltops and areas away from the water. Web cams and observations indicate that snow was falling across Queen Anne Hill and the SeaTac Airport in the Seattle Metro area as well as over surrounding parts of western Washington. Near sea level and near the immediate sound… the precipitation is mainly in the form of rain or a rain and snow mix. Local accumulations of and inch or two this afternoon can not be ruled out over hilltops
or areas well away from the Puget Sound.
Here are the latest webcam shots from around the area:

Overall, the roads are still clear, some snow is sticking on grass and the ground, but it’s nothing to worry about â€“ last we checked the temp was still above freezing…
