**WINTER STORM WARNING/ADVISORY: Final Christmas Snow Update

December 24th, 2012 by Matthew Leach

I’m sure plenty of you are ready to hear about something else on this blog. Or maybe not ;)

As the sun sets on this beautiful Christmas Eve, many of you are anxious about tomorrow’s weather. There still remains a lot of uncertainty, and a lot of the fine details likely won’t be resolved until the event unfolds Christmas morning. Despite all this, here’s my best estimate for what will happen over the next 24 hours. First order of business:

The HOOD CANAL AREA is under a WINTER STORM WARNING from 4 AM to 3 PM Christmas Day (tomorrow). This area could receive anywhere from 5-10”, perhaps as much as a foot of snow by the late afternoon. Another surge of moisture pushes through Christmas evening, though some areas may be cold enough to add another several inches of snow. Most locations should’ve turned to rain by the time this next system arrives, however. Click here for more info.

The rest of Kitsap County is under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY from 5 AM to 1 PM Christmas Day (tomorrow). This area could receive anywhere from 1-3” with locally higher amounts the further west you go. Click here for more info.

Here’s the updated snow map:

Again, travel conditions will deteriorate the closer to Hood Canal you are. Roads will be slick and snow will struggle to change over to rain in places like Seabeck and Brinnon.

PLEASE, take pictures! I would love to see your Christmas snow, so send it to my e-mail at: forecastingkitsap@live.com

Thank you all for your help the past couple weeks with bouts of snow, wind, and rain. I can’t forecast effectively without you!

Have a very Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy this special snow!!!
