We’ve been talking about a looming chance of snow for days – and now the National Weather Service has issued an alert saying it’s likely: The NWS has our area under a Winter Weather Advisory starting at 1 pm Tuesday and continuing through 10 am Wednesday. From the alert: “Snow expected. Total snow accumulations of up to 3 inches. … Snow accumulation likely over the higher hills of the area during heavy showers Tuesday afternoon. Greater chance of snow accumulations during the overnight hours into Wednesday morning.” However, the NWS forecast discussion notes, “There is a lot of variability with this system and precipitation amount is going to be very dependent on location, elevation, and timing. … With this type of set up, the forecast is still very variable and is going to change all the way up to the event.”

    Flakes just fell on Alki (beach and 64th) for about 5 minutes as of 12:15am on Tuesday. It already stopped, but was unmistakable.

      Thanks for the report! We had some tiny tiny snowflakes in an extremely light flurry around 10:15 pm up here at 300′, didn’t last long.

    Just got home to Arbor Heights from work in Bellevue. A bit of flaking all the way across the Lake and a very light flurry as I was parking. We’re about 275 feet up.
