WEST SEATTLE WEATHER: Snow on the way, and related notes

(Photographed near Me-Kwa-Mooks by Patricia Boiko)

10:05 AM: As reported this afternoon, a Winter Storm Warning is now in effect for our area, and that could mean several inches of snow by morning. Many areas still have some lingering from the weekend; today’s high only reached 34 (12 degrees below normal) so there wasn’t much melting. With the anticipation of potential overnight snow, we have a few announcements in already:

Senior Center of West Seattle will be closed Tuesday
West Seattle/Fauntleroy YMCA (WSB sponsor) plans to open late, at noon Tuesday
-If you have Tuesday solid-waste pickup, Seattle Public Utilities tells us they’ll be making their decision early in the morning, once they’ve assessed safety; if there’s a change, they’ll announce it here (we’ll have the info too)
SDOT‘s out treating roads – this map shows where
-Citywide traffic cameras (with still image and video options) are here
Metro is on regular routing as of right now

If you have changes, announcements, info, pics, please email westseattleblog@gmail.com or text 206-293-6302 – thank you!

5:45 AM: We’ll launch the usual morning traffic coverage shortly, but first a note that the alert was downgraded overnight to a Winter Weather Advisory – less potential snow.

    Another busted snow forecast, whenever the news mentions a winter storm warning, prepare for rain

      Look on the bright side…the supermarkets will be less crowded today than yesterday afternoon.

    The bright side is in Mexico. Or Costa Rica, or Panama.
