WEATHER UPDATE: Snow “Pellets” Pelt Burien Area

WEATHER UPDATE: Snow “Pellets” Pelt Burien Area

Snow squalls slammed the Burien area this afternoon, chock full of hail-like snow “pellets” which turned to regular flakes which have either lightened up or stopped entirely.

The question on everyone’s mind of course is:

Will the snow continue tonight?

Will school be delayed or closed tomorrow?

The National Weather Service says there’s a 90% chance of snow this afternoon, with lows hitting the mid-20s tonight, but only one to three inches accumulation:

AN ARCTIC FRONT IS PUSHING SOUTH THROUGH THE PUGET SOUND REGION BRINGING INTENSE SHOWERY WEATHER…

MONDAY AM ADVISORY: Snowing, But No School Delays

MONDAY AM ADVISORY: Snowing, But No School Delays


Yes, it’s snowing lightly in Burien with temps in the low 30s, but as of 7am Monday morning there are no reported school delays or closures.

Here’s the latest forecast from the National Weather Service – up to an inch of snow is possible:

Today: Snow showers likely. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 40. Calm wind becoming north northwest between 7 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.

Tonight: A 40 percent chance of snow showers before 11pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 26. North northwest wind between 9 and 13 mph. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
