Print This Post  Email This Post

The National Weather Service released a “Winter Weather Advisory” just before Noon on Sunday, Nov. 21st, with a warning for possible snow showers in the greater Seattle/Tacoma/Everett area through Monday evening.

As if to prove just how tough it is to predict weather with much accuracy, this latest advisory goes against the previous ‘statement,’ which indicated that the only snow in the area would be between Olympia and Portland.

An increase in cold and wind is predicted for Monday, so be sure to wrap and winterize your outside pipes.

We’ve already seen some light flurries in Burien, have you? Please leave a Comment below or if you get any good pics, email us!

Here’s the full advisory:
