West Seattle snow? Alert level changes to Winter Weather Advisory

December 19, 2013 at 1:08 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle weather | 8 Comments

The National Weather Service has changed the alert for possible Friday morning snow to a Winter Weather Advisory, in effect 1 am to 1 pm – read the alert here. One to three inches of snow is possible before it changes to rain in the afternoon. The alert changed after the Weather Service’s midday “forecast discussion” noted that while precipitation is undeniably on the way, “everything else related to snow vs. rain, snow accumulations, and start and end times remains in the Holy Moly zone of uncertainty.” Updates as we get them …

  2. Will be interesting to see what the school do since SPS is one hour early and some private schools are doing half days.

  4. Beer, milk, disposable diapers, fireplace logs, toilet paper and frozen pizzas. Items that people panic buy in Seattle.

  5. Time to go buy another sled for Ctown Hill! Woo Hoo! FYI – SDOT has entrusted me with putting out the hill closure signs up and I will be doing so as soon as I see accumulation. Wax up your sleds people! Oh and kids, no bonfires in the middle of the road this year please. ;). Be safe everyone!

  6. Ghill, haven’t had to boot anyone in a while. The forum has been more cantankerous this week. Cache-clearing might help. It is six years old which in software terms is something like 100 in dog years. Some say we should euthanize the software; we are instead trying to find an expert and it ain’t easy. Apologies.

  7. cliff mass updated his blog, and still calls for snow… but by my sniff test when I went to the car late tonight, it didn’t ‘smell like snow’

  8. Just in case you haven’t looked outside…it IS snowing…and accumulating. Cliff Mass’ magical, mystical mathmatics computator has ruled the day!
