West Seattle Weather Watch: Snow? Not likely tonight, but …

9:13 PM: Just a quick weather note in case you are wondering: While the regional “winter weather advisory” mentioned in our earlier storm coverage is now in effect, the Arctic air that was headed south is reported to have slowed down. So the temperature has held steady in the upper 30s since mid-afternoon, and even the convergence zone north of the city isn’t likely to see any snow before morning. Bottom line, if you’re worried about getting around in the city late tonight/in the wee hours, it does NOT look like you’ll find icy roads, let alone snow.

4:16 AM: The temperature has finally started drifting downward, and so has a bit of snow – our friends in Ballard and Queen Anne have seen a bit, though the somewhat-serious stuff has remained toward the Snohomish/King line and points north. The latest “forecast discussion” envisions the potential for snow continuing to drift this way, with the advisory in effect through 11 am. Regardless of whether we get snow, we have wintriness – the temps are not expected to get any higher during the day – bundle up.

      We added the “advisory” to our ongoing weather coverage (see the link in this story) at 4:07 pm. Nothing has technically changed since then but given the temperature stall, it seemed like the “no news is good news” mention might be warranted at this point.
