A lot of you are wondering about snow. I have been wondering too. The problem is that the models are not consistent for this weekend and early next week. This morning our local model forced by the GFS..the NWS’s best large scale forecast model, indicated a major snowstorm late Monday. But I don’t trust any of it at this point and you shouldn’t either. Thursday and Friday until dinnertime looks dry for western Washington…and cold. You can bank on that.
BTW, a record low of 18 was set at SeaTac Airport Wednesday morning (Dec. 9th). The previous low was 21, set in 1972.
