This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

 Very wet and windy today with a lot of mountain snow. There is a wind advisory for most of Western Washington. Winds are from the south and southwest 20-30 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph.  There is a winter storm warning for the mountains, with closures planned for Route 2 for avalanche control work today. Expecting a couple more feet of snow today with a snow level of 3,000 feet. It’s alos unstable enough that we could have a thunderstorm this afternoon.

Tomorrow will feature showers, breezy conditions and a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon, especially in a Puget Sound Convergence Zone which looks likely to form over King and Snohomish Counties. We could get a little hail with this. Friday, we will calm down, but there will be a few showers and highs will be chilly, in the upper 40s. The weekend is looking better — partly sunny, with highs near 50. Next week starts out dry with highs a little warmer, mid 50s.

Pretty sunrise in Port Angeles. From Terry. It doesn’t look like that today!


Dosewallips elk herd taking a walk by Diane’s house. She loves to see them, but doesn’t appreciate it when they eat her flowers.
