National Weather Service forecasters continue to expect some snow, but not a lot, around the Ferndale area and other Puget Sound locations Christmas Eve evening.
Satellite imagery shows an approaching front this morning. The front will move through western Washington tonight with its core passing far south near the mouth of the Columbia River. This will keep winds northerly over the area, keeping cooler air in place.
Even with the cooler air mass, the question remains as to how much precipitation will be provided. Forecasters say expected amounts are not favorable for much snow.
Total expected snow amounts for areas north of Everett, including the Ferndale area, are an inch or less according to forecasters.
Environment Canada forecasters are in agreement, saying to expect light snow beginning early this evening with less than an inch of expected accumulation.
Precipitation for the most part will come to an end during the early morning hours of Christmas Day behind the front.
