West Seattle weather: Early morning snow sightings

December 18, 2012 at 1:49 am | In West Seattle news, West Seattle weather | 8 Comments

1:49 AM: First snow sightings – Westwood, Sunrise Heights, Highland Park. Forecast still does not suggest anything major, though.

6:12 AM: Nothing on the ground where we are. And Seattle is still in the (small) “snow shadow” zone on the National Weather Service map you can see here – meaning no alerts/advisories/warnings right now.

  1. Almost here folks, Enjoy it while it lasts, I would expect about an inch maybe 2 before it ends.

  7. Bottom line seems to be, Seattle indeed is in the “snow shadow,” so we’re expecting a relatively normal commute, and have launched the usual daily transit/traffic-tracking story – here: http://westseattleblog.com/?p=133777
