Seattle might make it without a winter snow

SEATTLE — With winter half-over and mild weather holding for Seattle, the city could make it through the season without a significant snowfall.

The National Weather Service says there was .6 of an inch recorded on Dec. 18 at Sea-Tac International Airport, but that was it. It was cold enough in January, but often dry.

Meteorologist Johnny Burg says the chance for significant snow in Seattle is diminishing but can’t be ruled out, even into March.

He says Seattle typically goes without winter snow only once or twice a decade.

Meanwhile, snow has been falling in the Olympics and Cascades and the snowpack is close to normal.
