The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 10pm New Years Eve until 10am New Years morning. Accumulation up to 1-2 inches is expected, slightly more if we get a convergence zone.

So far Shoreline has had some flakes and some hail
Due to low light conditions a long exposure was used to take this photo,
causing the snow flakes to appear as long streaks.

The majority of the snow is expected to accumulate between 3am and 9am Sunday morning. If we end up under a convergence band we could see even 3-4 inches. There is extreme uncertainty in the model forecasts even as the event is starting up. Be prepared for winter weather conditions if you are planning to do any driving after the New Year has rung in.
The cold blast I discussed here is still expected to follow lasting well into next weekend with a threat of a new snow storm moving in next Friday evening. I'm still watching things closely to see if a major event becomes visible on the horizon.
