7:44 AM: Snowing!
7:54 AM: Sticking on cars, but not on the road, yet (at least here – and we’re at ~~300′ elevation).
8:08 AM: Still snowing but it’s very light. And thanks to everyone who texted when it started in earnest about half an hour ago! Meantime, a ferry note: Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth remains down to 1 boat, with the Kitsap not fixed yet.
8:51 AM: Snow continues, but so far the roads we’ve seen remain bare/wet. The sidewalks, however, are starting to get coated. (Photo added – and the decks!)
9:05 AM: Snowing more heavily now. We’ll continue tracking it here until about 10 and then switch to a midday snow update. No changes/closures/etc. announced by anyone so far, but if your business/school/organization does have a weather-related announcement at some point, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org – thank you!
9:36 AM: Back to snowing very lightly. But this is just the first round. And along with more snow later, we’re also expecting wind, per this alert – out of the southeast with gusts up to 40 mph tonight, so charge everything!
6:00 AM: Good morning. It’s Tuesday, November 29th.
If you see snow, let us know! (Text or voice, 206-293-6302.) After late-night flurries, anything’s possible, though forecasters think it’ll hold off until afternoon. Windy this pm too. High in the 30s. (Check the latest alert status here.)
