Statement as of 4:35 AM PST on February 26, 2009

… Additional snowfall of an inch or two and freezing temperatures will warrant caution this morning…

Hazardous driving conditions will be the rule across western Washington this morning due to snow that has already fallen…  possible accumulations of another inch or two… and freezing temperatures.

Scattered snow showers will continue this morning as the upper level low pressure system over the area moves eastward. Local
additional accumulations of an inch or two are possible. In addition temperatures have fallen below freezing across most of western Washington this morning… so roads and sidewalks will be icy even if they are free of snow.

These conditions will be relatively short lived. Temperatures will climb above freezing by noon today with highs around 40… and most of the area will have partly sunny skies.
