SEATTLE -- Some snow continues to fall across south Puget Sound, increasing Tuesday evening, but we’re already seeing quite a bit around Grays Harbor, Pacific, Western Lewis and Thurston Counties this morning.
Seattle, Bremerton, Everett all have snow chances too -- but the best opportunity for accumulation in in the South Sound.
Models are all over the place on this system. Most models didn’t show snow moving up any farther north than Tacoma – either way, we're not ruling it out.
Q13 News Meteorologist Katie Boer says south of Olympia we could see 1-2” possible through Wednesday morning. The rest of us south of Skagit County could see a chance of up to a half inch. But snow accumulations are being upped now as new model runs come in.
The biggest trouble spots are Southwest Washington Coast, I-5 Corridor from SW Pierce, Thurston and Lewis County.
That means higher snow accumulations for SW Washington -- Lower Columbia I-5 corridor: St. Helens, Longview, Kelso, Castle Rock, Vancouver.
How much? 1-2” now – midday, 3-7” later day/ tonight.
Areas like Snohomish County more likely to stay drier.
Here's the forecast by region:
Mostly cloudy, slight snow chances. Highs: upper 30s
Mostly cloudy in the north sound. SLIGHT snow chances, but it’s not expected this far north. Highs in mid to upper 30s. Colder wind chills
Mostly cloudy, chance snow. Up to ½” snow possible. Highs upper 30s. Colder wind chills
Mostly cloudy. Small snow chance. Little to no accumulation. Highs upper 30s
EAST SOUND LOWLANDS/NORTHBEND, ENUMCLAW:
