3 PM Snow Story


The northerly arctic air is now pushing south past Seattle, with clear skies behind. At its leading edge there is a wintry mix...particularly over the eastern suburbs (see radar and satellite). Sunny, dry conditions are found behind. So if you are north of Seattle..the game is over. Protect your plants.

  1. Wow, that went entirely too quickly.

  2. I agree with athos. I mean, when it came, it DUMPED a quick 1.5-2" here on Union Hill in Redmond (600'), to the point I couldn't see out the window. But would of been nice to see it hang around a while longer. Plus, I hear about the rapid clearing after, and how it melts almost all the snow. Yuck.

  3. And, if your rhodies and other plants have snow on them, don't remove the snow cover. It acts as insulation and will protect them.

  4. WE had 1 lightning and thunder here in Bellevue as it passed thru here.

    And then heavy icy flurries for 10 minutes or so.

  5. This cold snap has obliterated the beautiful line of cherry trees down 24th in the Central District, I'm sure.

    Unless someone can reassure me and say they're heartier than I give them credit for?

  6. Up at about 400' in the hills north of Monroe, got about 3.5" in the span of about an hour and a half... it's dropping off the trees now but given the predicted temps for the next few days it should be around for a while...

  7. Heavy snow in Olympia the last hour, maybe an inch so far.

  9. AJ, no worries about the cherries. Most grown around here are hardy to a couple of zones colder (another 20 or 30 degrees down the thermometer).
