Before we move on to Christmas Day coverage – you might be wondering how much snow fell, and whether we’ll see more. The National Weather Service says the official Christmas Eve total measured at Sea-Tac was 1.6 inches.
That would place this at #3 on the NWS’s list of recorded Christmas Eve snowfalls:
1. 2.6″ 2008
2. 2.5″ 1926
3. 1.6″ 2017
4. 1.5″ 1911
5. 0.8″ 1965
6. 0.4″ 1902
7. 0.3″ 1971
The NWS says we could see up to one more inch of snow this morning – the Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 10 am. After that? Here’s the forecast: Rain and snow showers possible this afternoon; then a cold, cloudy night; and Tuesday has another chance of snow showers before (relatively) warmer rain returns later in the week.
ADDED MONDAY NIGHT: Historic!
For the first time in over 120 years of records Seattle had at least 1" of snow on both Christmas Eve and Christmas. Official snowfall amounts for Seattle-Tacoma airport 1.6" on the 24th and 1.0" on the 25th. #wawa #wasnow #whitechristmas2017

And we could see a little more Tuesday night.
