Are you fretting yet, skiers? Snow totals far below normal
SEATTLE (AP) — The recent mild weather systems that blew through Washington have left little snow in the Cascades.
The Northwest Avalanche Center in Seattle reports amounts are far below normal. Some totals as of Monday:
Six inches at Mount Baker, just 9 percent of normal.
Six inches at Snoqualmie Pass, 17 percent of normal.
Two inches at Crystal Mountain, 6 percent of normal.
Jay Albrecht in the Weather Service office in Seattle says the recent rain washed away a lot of the snow in the mountains. He says with winter ahead, there’s time to build up the snowpack.
