There are rumors the Hood Canal area could see some sticking snow late tonight through tomorrow. I am doing more research on this potential, but so far this doesn’t look like a major event, and not everyone on the peninsula will be affected, or at least affected the same way.
I will be making a separate post about the snow potential this evening as that is when the details will become more clear. Here’s a Special Weather Statement put out by the National Weather Service early this morning:
