Last night’s snow forecast seems to have mostly missed Seattle, but the National Weather Service is saying winds could pick up to 25 – 30mph gusts today.
So what happened to the snow? The NWS says warmer southerly winds came through central Puget Sound last night, which kept Seattle from getting much snow — most of the snow fell to the north in Skagit, Whatcom, Clallam and San Juan counties.
But, with the snow forecasted yesterday, Seattle Schools preemptively cancelled classes for today, partly because it was already a planned early-release day.
The forecast now calls for rain instead of snow, with temperatures hovering in the 40s for the rest of the week.
