No Snow Today Despite the NewsMarch 23rd, 2009 by Matthew Leach
As expected, my classmates were quite disappointed that it didn’t snow today. I told them all I expected was a rain/snow mix, but they were insistent I called for several inches today. Hmmm…this looks like another case of the public believing what they want to believe!
So at 6 AM this morning the temperature was at 33.6º—cold enough to snow. However, the clouds broke up enough, the temperatures warmed fast enough, the precipitation came late enough, and the rainfall was light enough to prevent any snow today. Other than my peers, I didn’t hear any complaints about no snow today. I was a bit disappointed though. I love the snow!
But, we aren’t exactly done with the snow threat. A convergence zone Tuesday night into Wednesday could drop a bit of snowfall to the area, but at this time it appears the main victims will be those living between north King county and south Snohomish county. Kitsap could walk away unscathed…the key word is “could” though.
Models have been waffling with the details past Wednesday, however the overall trend is to dry out but remain rather cool until next weekend when we introduce the chance for more rain and clouds. Highs will be agood 5-7 degrees below normal during this period.
How does Spring Break look weather-wise? Meh…not too good…mainly wet, cool and cloudy. But, again, consistency has not been seen on the models yet so that could change!
Have a fanatstic evening!
