Spotty wet snow showers with most accumulation in North Sound

The trend of wet slushy snow continues Tuesday, but sun and drier conditions are on the way, though they won’t last long.

Here’s what to expect.


A band of convergence zone snow continues Tuesda7y afternoon, mainly over Snohomish County.

A lot of reports from the early morning snow range from about .5 to 3 inches with some isolated areas in the convergence zone around 4 to 6 inches. The snow showers will linger for the next couple of hours and there is the outside chance of an isolated thunderstorm, but the convergence zone will lose strength this afternoon and eventually be done by late afternoon.

There could still be some spotty and slushy accumulation in Snohomish and King counties, however, temps are in the mid and upper 30s and lower 40s, so most of what is falling is melting now.

We will clear overnight and it will be chilly in the low to mid-20s!

On Wednesday, we should see some sunshine but also increasing high clouds with another rainy system coming in early on Thursday. There will be some snow mixed in to start with the snow level near the surface. Then snow levels should rise above 1,000 feet during the day with a lot of snow in the mountains.

Look for scattered showers on Friday and into the weekend, with some pockets of wet snow possible, especially in the overnight and early morning hours. However, during the day it will mostly be rain or if the showers are heavy, rain with some snow mixed in. Highs will be in the low 40s.
