My faithful readers will remember my post from Thanksgiving week last year. We were expecting a slight “dusting” of snow that Monday, which turned into a two hour commute home, via ice, and the city shutting down for three days.
Well, here we are at November 14, and our forecast for this week is as follows, per KOMO4:
“…This cold snap will also give parts of Western Washington its first chance of seeing some snow this fall. The snow level will likely drop to 300'-700' starting Friday, but as is often the case, the cold air arrives right when the moisture moves out. That said, there likely will be enough moisture around for scattered showers to form. Those showers will likely fall as snow showers in the Cascade foothills, the Hood Canal area, and higher hilltops along the I-5 corridor, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if some snow showers even formed over Seattle, Tacoma, or Everett….”
An extra tidbit of information is that my house sits very close to the highest point in Seattle – 500ft. So while the forecast, of course, downplays the possibility of snow, we long time Seattleites know better.
I will be stocking up on groceries on Thursday. Just in case.
