Live Blog: Yet Another Winter Storm Feb 10-11, 2019

8:00 am PST update

This update is mainly to report the snowfall totals from the Sunday storm.  The big winner, nearly 2 feet of snow in Snoqualmie Pass, with most areas seeing between 2 and 5 inches.  This is only the partial list, for the complete list, just click on this link.  We will be adding to these totals through the day today.  Slide5

5:35 am PST Feb 11 update

Good morning, we are watching round 4 of snowfall that will move from south to north today.  On radar currently, there is likely a convergence zone in King County where snow is falling in the Seattle area points east and south.  Additional rain and snow down in southwest Washington and that is round 4 of the wintry weather.  Slide4

Now let’s get to the warnings and advisories that’s currently in effect and all of Western Washington is under either a Winter Storm Warning or a Winter Weather Advisory.

Finally, a look at the updated snowfall totals through Tuesday, we are thinking that the Olympics and the Cascades will see the highest snowfall with a couple of feet possible.  As far as the lowlands, areas where rain or freezing rain don’t mix in will see the highest snowfall totals and we think that the rain/snow line could get as far north as Everett.  Slide20

Many schools in the area are closed, and King Metro, Community Transit for example are on snow routes and reducing service.  So if you don’t have to be out today, it is advised to just stay home.  Conditions will again get dangerous again by this afternoon.

5:35 pm PST update

Good evening, well, here we go again.  A fast moving system will continue to bring snow to Western Washington for the next few hours.  By the time this system moves off to the east, another 1 to 4 inches of snow will be possible.  So with that, here is a complete list of watches, warnings, and advisories in effect for Western Washington…Slide4

Now for the expected snowfall totals through Tuesday, we still think that a few areas could see up to a foot of snow, but what could throw a wrench into things, is the second system and where it tracks as it will determine where it will remain mainly snow and which areas could see that transition into freezing rain and rain.  Areas that see the mix of freezing rain will see lower amounts.  We will continue to monitor things over the next 24 hours and will be able to fine tune the forecast.
