Waking Up to White

I don’t think I mentioned this in my last post, but the National Weather Service radar is down and has been down for a couple days. They expect it to be fully repaired until this afternoon at the earliest, so weather geeks around the region are missing an important tool that will tell us when the snow is coming and where it is right now.

On Silverdale Way I woke up to about 1.5” of snow, but the roads were completely clear. Temperatures have plummeted into the upper 20s and lower 30s and they’ll continue to fall until sunrise, so even though some roadways may look completely fine, it’ll still be very icy.

Any more snow headed our way? Well, because we don’t have radar it’s hard to say, but the satellite imagery does suggest we do run the risk of an inch or so more of snow before this is all over, and to add to the headache it will be very random and showery in nature. By afternoon the snow risk greatly decreases as temperatures will warm above freezing and precipitation will be moving rapidly to the east.

The rest of the forecast remains largely unchanged. A break in the weather until Saturday night when more rain enters the area and stays here until mid week next week.

Stay safe and warm!
