WEATHER/TRANSIT: Winter Storm Warning alert; Metro’s evening outlook; snow photos

4:59 PM: Two notes, starting with the forecast:

WEATHER UPDATE: As sunset approached, West Seattle saw some sunshine, though the temperature has remained below freezing, so last night’s snow is still around. The National Weather Service continues to predict that more is on th way tonight, so a Winter Storm Warning alert will take effect at 6 pm. The NWS stresses that there’s much uncertainty about where the “heavier snow bands” will go – maybe not this far south – but we should know by mid-evening. The alert currently is set to expire at 7 am tomorrow.

TRANSIT UPDATE: Metro remains on regular routing in our area, but with some changes, most notably:

Here’s the full Metro overview.

ADDED 8:16 PM: Haven’t seen more than flurries so far. If anything more happens, we’ll start a new report. But before we move on from this one, some photos from readers – first, an aerial near Myrtle Reservoir, from an anonymous texter:

Next, from Theresa Arbow-O’Connor:

If you see snowfall – 206-293-6302, text or voice – thank you!

      We reported this twice, in the “am information” updates and in the city briefing coverage.

        Thanks, I searched the page with “garbage” and found it in the comments. Not sure how I missed it in the text of the article.

          Probably because I usually say “solid waste” as it’s trash and recycling.
