WEATHER ADVISORY: 1st Winter Storm Watch Coming!
The National Weather Service released this “Winter Storm Watch” warning at 2:10pm Thurs. Dec. 11th:
… Winter Storm Watch in effect from Friday afternoon through late Friday night…
The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Winter Storm Watch… which is in effect from Friday afternoon through late Friday night.
Heavy lowland snow is possible over portions of western Washington Friday night.
At this time it appears that the highest probability of accumulating snow in The Lowlands will over the Kitsap peninsula… along the Strait of Juan de Fuca… and in the foothills of the Cascades. Other areas such as the north coast… the areas north of Seattle in the Puget Sound convergence zone area… and at elevations above about 700 feet in the southwest interior… may also see heavy snow accumulations Friday night depending on the exact track and intensity of the incoming storm. Three to five inch accumulations are possible in the lowland watch area.
A majority of current forecast models suggest that snow would begin falling during the late afternoon hours over the Kitsap peninsula and around Hood Canal… then spread into other areas in the watch around the tail end of the evening commute.
A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant snow accumulations that may impact travel. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
Also note that Sunday’s forecast looks *very* cold, with a High of just 28Â°F and a Low of 19Â°F!
So…batten down the hatches and stock up B-Town! A storm’s a-brewin’!
