ADVISORY: Yes, It’s Snowing Out. What To Expect…
Somewhat surprising that it’s actually snowing in Burien now, and the National Weather Service has issued this Advisory:
… Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 6 PM PST this evening…
Along the I-5 corridor of King… Pierce… Thurston and Lewis counties…1 to 3 inches of snow accumulation is expected.
Heaviest snowfall will occur over the Kitsap peninsula west of Puget Sound… where 2 to 4 inches of accumulation is expected in the Bremerton area.
A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow… sleet… or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities… and use caution while driving.
For our area, they’re calling for:
- Snow accumulation between 1 and 4 inches, contiuing tonight, with temps in the upper 30s.
- Snow decreasing overnight. Snow accumulation up to one inch. Lows in the upper 20s to lower 30s. Southeast wind 10 to 15 mph.
- Mostly cloudy. A chance of morning showers. Highs in the lower to mid 40s. North wind near 10 mph.
No word yet on school closures for Wednesday, but stay tuned for updates – we’ll post ’em as we get ’em (that is, as long as our Server holds out and the site stays online…).
