West Seattle Weather Watch: Latest word on potential snow

The afternoon “forecast discussion” from the National Weather Service goes so far as to say, “…want to emphasize that this situation will not be like that of what occurred across much of the interior lowlands back in November.” But that said, the forecasters think it’s looking likely that some snow will fall overnight Tuesday night into Wednesday: “Much of the lowlands will likely see some snowflakes late Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. Any snowfall amounts, though, will be light or less than [an] inch.” The Seattle Times (WSB partner) reports SDOT will likely decide tomorrow morning whether to fit its trucks for snow/ice duty, just in case.

10:27 PM UPDATE: Weather analyst Cliff Mass has published an update; he doesn’t think we have much to worry about.

    no disrespect intended, but the last time cliff mass emphatically predicted “no snow!” we got pounded.
    i’m starting to think that meteorologists rely on reading chicken entrails to predict the weather.

Sorry, comment time is over.
