Sunday Late Night Snow Update

Here’s the latest on the winter weather moving across the region:

 

The freezing level will hold on the valley floor through early morning.  The valley has seen 0-1″ with more in the hills. Monday we should see more intermittent snow showers early, then tapering off through the afternoon. Another batch of heavy snow showers will move through Monday night into Tuesday. There’s some disagreement overall, but I’m thinking we see a wintry mix of snow, possibly freezing rain and then all rain on Tuesday before it changes back over to all rain by later on Wednesday. The foothills and Cascades will see significant accumulating snow, also in a showery nature.

 

Overnight:

-The valley will see a dusting to an inch in some spots.

-The foothills in the Coast and Cascade ranges will see 2­­-3″.

-The passes and ski resorts will see 5­-8″

 

For Monday:

-Snow showers continue off and on for the valley for another trace to 1″ in some spots

-The foothills in the Coast and Cascade ranges will see 2­-4″.

-The passes and ski resorts will see 3­-7″

 

For Tuesday:

-The freezing level will rise to about 1,000 feet, leaving the valley with a wintry mix and likely freezing rain/ice pellets at times.

-The foothills will see 0-1″

-The passes and ski resorts will see 2-4″

 

This will be an evolving forecast over the next 24 hours, especially if the cold air becomes stubborn and is in place at the time the warmer, moist system comes in off the ocean, we may be having some commute issues both Tuesday and Wednesday. Stay tuned.
