ALERT: Possible Snow Coming Saturday Night?
We’re certainly having a lively winter, and even though Spring is scheduled to start in just two weeks (March 20th), there’s a chance of snow in the forecast for Saturday night!
Here’s the statement from the National Weather Service:
Statement as of 5:36 AM PST on March 06, 2009
… Snow showers possible across The Lowlands this weekend…
A strong cold front will pass through western Washington on Saturday bringing cool and unstable conditions to the region. Onshore flow will increase behind the cold front with showers expected Saturday afternoon into Sunday. Snow levels will remain quite low…near sea level with rain possibly mixing with snow in heavier showers. Snowfall accumulations will be spotty with up to 1 inch of snow possible from stronger showers. Locally heavier amount may be found across the higher hills of King and Snohomish counties as a Puget Sound convergence zone develops Saturday afternoon through early Sunday. Heavy snow is also expected across the western slopes of the north and central Cascades.
Cool and showery weather will persist into early next week with temperatures remaining below normal. Low temperatures will be in the mid 20s to lower 30s with afternoon highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
