Snow! Looks like it might actually happen…

Posted on February 5th, 2017 by Laura Fonda


We haven’t had much snow at all this year or in recent years past. 2008 was the last “big snow” with a few dustings since (some enough to snarl traffic). But, it looks like that could all change starting later today.

Of course, being a realist when it comes to Seattle snow forecasts, it’s easy to say “I’ll believe it when it happens” – but, here’s what local weather guru Cliff Mass has to say in his 8am update:

“Virtually all [forecast models] go for snow, with some showing as much as 10-12 inches. ┬áThe ensemble average (or mean) is for about 8 inches, with their single high resolution run, a bit more….┬áThe heaviest snow is from south Seattle to Vancouver, WA and some of the amounts are impressive 6-15 inches.”
