Weather service adjusts forecast for snow this week
Meteorologists said weather patterns Sunday indicated that a heavy snow storm is less likely to happen this week. The cold front is tracking farther north into British Columbia. That means less snowfall than earlier weather patterns showed.
Its not unusual for these things to waffle, said Dennis DAmico, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
More snow, however, is expected to hit Snohomish County and the Seattle area beginning Tuesday night. That snow likely will quickly turn to rain by Wednesday morning.
Were not closing the door on a major snow event, but were hedging on warmer temperatures, DAmico said.
Early predictions show possible snow accumulations between 2 and 4 inches. Forecasters said they should have a better idea Monday of how much snow is on the way.
Most areas of Snohomish County saw some snow Sunday with some areas north of Everett reporting up to 6 inches of snow. A winter advisory was lifted by noon Sunday.
Drivers were advised that any moisture on the ground was expected to freeze overnight, making for an icy commute Monday morning.
