Bracing for snow

SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER STAFF

The snow is falling around us, but most of it hasn’t reached the ground yet.

SOUND OFF

– Is it snowing where you are?
There’s a lot of precipitation aloft, but dry air between us and the clouds is so far absorbing the moisture, said Allen Kam, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Seattle.

Once that dry air has wet its whistle enough, snow should start coating the region, accumulating up to 2 inches by tonight throughout the Puget Sound metro area, Kam said.

Downtown Seattle and waterfront areas will get less snow because of stubborn warm air.

Mountain passes will likely get the most snowfall on Friday, when winds drive the current system east.

Expect sporadic rain and snow showers into Sunday evening with the heaviest potential for Saturday. Temperatures are likely to rise toward the end of this week.
