(Car hood, 5:10 am)
5:02 AM: What’s falling right now – at least where we are, on the hill east of Lincoln Park – started around 4:45 as something more like sleet, and now it’s intensified to wet snow. Until now, the snow reports had all been from points north, but commenters spotted renegade flakes in the last few hours, and the temperature’s been falling, now 34 at Sea-Tac.
5:31 AM: It’s all but stopped. The “winter weather advisory” remains in effect until 11 am.
7:25 AM: More snow since then, and everything is covered. Photo above this line is from Tiana at Youngstown Flats (WSB sponsor) in North Delridge. And from Jason in Admiral:

7:47 AM: Above, looking north at California from Thistle. SDOT tweets, “… Road temps still high so no accumulations yet. Crews will check and treat roads as needed.” The forecast still says the snow chances should end in a few hours.
9 AM: Some blue sky out there! Breezy too. Beware slick roads – there’s a multi-car crash on the eastbound bridge right now, which our tipster says is VERY slick. Thanks to everyone who’s sent photos – Linda shares this view of Lincoln Park’s frosted forest:
From Puget Park on Pigeon Point, Ben shares this photo of a snow fan:
Ben observes, “Not enough to sled but sure is pretty.” Meantime, Alki has wind-and-high-tide-fueled waves again this morning:
Thanks to Cheney for the photo. Now, our first snowperson photo:
Reagan in Fauntleroy shared that with a hearty “Go, Dawgs!”
9:29 AM: The SFD response for the bridge crash closed quickly, indicating no serious injuries.
2:11 PM NOTE: Thanks to everyone who’s been sharing photos, particularly of the spectacular surf and spray at Alki – we’re putting together a separate galley – and we’ll start a pm weather story, including information on SDOT’s plans for the roads, given the below-freezing temps. (We did travel some of the main routes earlier and noted that aside for a few shady spots, they’re mostly dry.)
