West Seattle Weather Watch: After the wind, the cold

(Photo by Sassy B, taken from Constellation Park)
The curtain has fallen on a windy day – fun for some, like the kiteboarder shown above, and challenging for others; some vendors at the West Seattle Farmers’ Market went without tents/canopies for fear the canvas tops would take wing and fly away, and a few almost did. So what now? The National Weather Service revised its “special weather statement” alert this afternoon, saying that much-colder air is finally on its way in tonight. Snow? Maybe a little, on the higher hills, the NWS says, but just maybe, in flurry/shower mode tomorrow. But the big point they’re emphasizing is that it’s going to be cold all week.

    Hope the de-icing trucks are out in full force tonight.

    No need for de-icing tonight; tomorrow night at the earliest.

    The north winds are beautiful here this time of year I look forward to the cold and whitecaps upon Puget Sound

    This is the first time there’s been a serious snow threat since I moved over here in 2012. What are the best routes for getting up hill to High Point? I presume the SSV and high bridge are the best option for getting to West Seattle but no matter how I get here it’s up hill.

    weather.com shows later this week/weekend with highs in the mid 30s and lows in the mid 20s… Brr!

    Trickycoolj,
    I’ve noticed that Sylvan Way is one of the first streets to get de-iced. (Might have something to do with the Police station being at the bottom of it.) So I would go Low-Level bridge, Delridge, then Sylvan.

    We have sleet in the Schmizt Park area! 49th and Hinds.

      I’m launching a weather story. Not supposed to last, though.

Sorry, comment time is over.
