Some excitement out there the past couple hours as a few light snow flurries moved through the metro area. Looks like the last batch is moving through East Vancouver. Enough to give a good coating on the ground in a few spots. I see I-205 is partially covered by fresh snow and slower moving traffic up around SR 500 on the WADOT video feed.
Radar looks pretty dry the next couple of hours…again, real light stuff.
So far it appears to be all snow, but the temperature at the top of our KPTV transmission tower in the West Hills (1800′) has come up to just under freezing. A good indication of warming up above the surface overnight. Thus the increasing chance for some spots of freezing drizzle or freezing rain showers.
We just had our first report of freezing rain in Sheridan at 10pm.
Otherwise evening models were no different, not a whole lot of moisture. Best chances for more than 1/2″ of snow or significant freezing rain is north and west of the metro area. And NE up in Clark County too.
