West Seattle Weather Watch: Snow? First – a wind advisory

1:28 PM: We’ve been watching the forecast since mentioning way back on Monday that weather experts foresaw a chance of snow this weekend. Now that the weekend’s almost here, the National Weather Service is still saying there’s a chance – more likely to see some flakes mixed in with showers, but could be a bit more. The city says it’s ready “just in case,” including preparing for the possibility of icy roads Sunday night/Monday morning. We’ll be updating all weekend long, of course, as things happen (or don’t)…

5:20 PM UPDATE: Wait – before we get to possible snow, there’s a wind advisory in effect for most of Saturday, starting at midnight tonight.

    Don’t believe the hype.

    Looks like they have their one snowplow ready. Gives me a jolt of confidence.

    Alright now, one more chance to be a big wimp. Love it, because I won’t do a thing to prepare but will blame the city if I get stuck. Yahoooo!

    SDOT has have 20 trucks with both plows and sanders ready to go, plus four flusher trucks with liquid magnesium chloride. Hopefully it won’t snow and they won’t be needed!

    I am not getting into it this time, this appears to be a very marginal event and outside of having a possible icy morning ( Monday ) I wouldn’t expect much, UNLESS……… You happen to live in the PSCZ ( which most of you don’t ) So I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

Sorry, comment time is over.
