How’s everyone holding up through the unending snow? NWS Seattle has been providing some timely updates on Twitter about what the future holds. Another winter storm watch is in effect for Sunday and Monday.
*Winter Storm Watch Issued*— NWS Seattle (@NWSSeattle) February 10, 2019
Winter Storm Watch has been issued for western Washington. There will be TWO systems that impact the area. The 1st system arrives Sunday afternoon-night with light accumulations. The 2nd system pushes through Monday-Tuesday. Additional details: pic.twitter.com/KZKk6EfxK0
It doesn’t sound like that will be the end of things either. Apparently, we can expect this type of weather for the next 1-2 weeks.
Alright everyone, let's discuss the next few days. This pattern will not be changing over the next 1-2 weeks. A light snow event is likely late Sunday into Monday [details soon]. There will then be another possible snow event Monday-Tuesday [detains uncertain]. Stay tuned! #WAwx pic.twitter.com/AP8E8LVses— NWS Seattle (@NWSSeattle) February 9, 2019
Earlier this week, a person from California that just moved up to the states asked me if this weather was normal in Seattle. I said that it wasn’t and that we rarely get snow that sticks around here. I would like to apologize to that person. I did not do my part in preparing you for what lies ahead.
Without further ado, let’s get onto the links!
