WEATHER: Lowland snow possible for region early Tuesday morning


The National Weather Service says that lowland snow is possible early Tuesday morning (Jan. 10) for southern parts of western Washington, which may affect the morning commute.

Specific to our region, NOAA says:

“Up to 1 inch of snow is possible for the central Coast, and for most of the central Puget Sound areas including Seattle and Bremerton.

For areas north of Seattle, little to no accumulation is expected.

Snow will make roads and surfaces slick, so be careful during the morning commute tomorrow!”

Also, 2 to 3 inches of snow with locally higher amounts is possible south of a line from Tacoma and Shelton through Lewis county, and as far west as eastern Grays Harbor county.”

Here’s the 7-day forecast:

  • Monday Night: A slight chance of rain before 10pm, then rain and snow likely. Cloudy, with a low around 35. East wind around 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. Little or no snow accumulation expected.
