As predicted, it’s snowing

12:45 p.m. For the last week, forecasters have been predicting snow. Well, it’s here. According to the National Weather Service, “expect brief and local accumulations of slushy snow to occur through early Wednesday morning. This is likely to occur on hills above about 500 feet this morning and above 300 feet tonight and early Wednesday morning.” A “winter storm watch” is in effect from Wednesday morning to Thursday morning. A winter storm watch means conditions are favorable for severe winter weather. UW Atmospheric Science professor and weather blogger Cliff Mass is predicting that this storm will dump two to five inches of snow in north Seattle. “Good news for commuters and SDOT tomorrow,” Mass writes, “Temperatures will remain above freezing, SO NO SOLID ICE LAYER like Nov 22, 2010.”

  1. The flakes that I’m seeing right now (at 16:55) are big and heavy looking. It’s starting to stick on the neighbor’s roof, and on their SUV. Here we go!

  2. Looks like the National Weather Service disagrees ’bout that freeze:
    A FLASH FREEZE WILL LIKELY AFFECT THE AFTERNOON OR EVENING COMMUTE OVER MUCH OF WESTERN WASHINGTON.

  3. I saw that, too. Maybe they mean the freeze will be over in a flash … !
