Sprinkles and Flurries This Evening

December 29, 2012

A few light showers are moving down out of Canada via Western Washington this evening.  Sticking snow level is around 1,500′, which means any of us could see flurries mixed in.  Around 3pm I had all snow at my home around 1,000′ in the western Gorge, although not sticking.

As the disturbance moves directly overhead from 5-9pm, a trace to 1/2″ is possible above 1,000′ in the Cascade foothills, a little heavier precipitation might bring the snow level as low as that.  But that’s about the best I can do, skies clear later tonight for lots of fog and low clouds late.
