The National Weather Service is warning everyone that there’s a 60% chance of some snow this Thursday (Feb. 17th), with the snow level projected to be around 200 feet.

The snow level is predicted to drop to just 100 feet on Friday, with a chance of the white stuff set at 50%.

But don’t get too excited, as only “new snow accumulation of less that half an inch (is) possible,” according to their website. Also, highs should get up around 40, meaning whatever falls will likely melt away.

However, University of Washington Meteorology Professor Cliff Mass says on his blog:

Yes, there is plenty of uncertainty, but folks let me assure you…this is a pattern to worry about.

Things should dry up on Saturday, but then the chance of snow returns Sunday and continues through Tuesday of next week.

Here’s the prognostication as of Tuesday, Feb. 15th at 4pm:

Thursday: Rain and snow showers likely. Snow level 200 feet. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 44. Southwest wind around 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
