More snow tonight? Forecasters say probably not

The National Weather Service Seattle office provides forecasts for all of western Washington, from the Oregon border to the Canadian border and from the Cascade Mountains to the Pacific Ocean beaches. As a result, they may forewarn of weather events in one part but it gets misinterpreted as applying to the entire area of western Washington. This seems to be happening with a recent forecast.

NWS forecasters are expecting measurable snowfall in some parts of western Washington lowlands, but it is not expected in the Ferndale area.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca and Admiralty Inlet Area (up to 3″) and the Olympic mountains (4-11″), areas at least 50 miles from the Ferndale area.

While temperatures are expected to remain around freezing, forecasters expect the chance of precipitation will remain low through the next few days. There is a potential (30%) for snow flurries early this afternoon (which began while this article was being written) but no accumulation is expected.
