Is it snowing yet? Here’s a convenient way to watch the flakes move in…

As the second snow of 2016 slowly sneaks up from the south before dropping a few flakes on our area, the easiest way to watch for its progress is right here – from the comfort of your computer or smartphone.

The National Weather Service issued this Short Term Forecast at 2:15 p.m.:

“A band of Light snow will move into the Tacoma area about 4 PM and into the Seattle-Bellevue area around 5 PM. Expect slick roadways even with the light accumulations that are expected with this band. Another more significant period of snow will likely move into the area between 7 PM and 10 PM. This band has the potential to produce 1 to 3 inches of snow, affecting the tail end of the evening commute.”

We’ve collected numerous images from WSDOT and other webcams – starting at the Lewis County line – which you can monitor below.
