WeatherWatcher: Snow warning cancelled for now but it's still icy

Monday, February 21, 2011

The special weather statement has expired. It appears at the moment that the snow storm expected to arrive Tuesday night and into Wednesday will hit the East Puget Sound lowlands and from Everett north. This is likely to miss Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. 

It appears we might see a few wet snowflakes mixed in here and there for the next few days but nothing accumulating is expected right now. 

Tonight it looks like the convergance zone storm already developed, and is dissipating, temperatures were too warm, and the precipitation was too light to even measure. Most of it was evaporating before it reached the ground. So tonight we might have some heavier showers that might produce some wet snowflakes but right now it doesn't look like anything too exciting will happen.

However with wet roads and freezing overnight temperatures, be careful in the mornings as there may be ice in places.

Wednesday - Friday still looks very tricky right now, we could still get hit by the white stuff as it is expected to get much colder later this week. Generally the national weather service doesn't issue watches or warnings any further advance than at most 48 hours prior. But the forecasts out there seem to favor a possible major snow event later this week.
