I am so happy that it has finally arrived.
Another ‘Special Weather Statement’!?
How many of these have we had this winter?
Special Weather Statement for Seattle and Vicinity, Washington

… LOWLAND SNOW SHOWERS AND LOCALIZED SNOW ACCUMULATIONS LIKELY FROM SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY… A RETURN TO COLD AND SHOWERY WEATHER IS EXPECTED…
It really is difficult to read ALL CAPS, so I am gonna convert it over using a handy online tool.
… Lowland snow showers and localized snow accumulations likely from Saturday through Monday… A return to cold and showery weather is expected from tonight through Monday morning. The air mass should be sufficiently cold to support snow showers over the lowlands, especially during the cooler morning hours from Saturday through Monday. It is too early to pinpoint specific snowfall amounts and locations. So the main message right now is simply to expect hit-and-miss snowfall accumulations around 1 inch or less at almost any time from Saturday through Monday. The cooler morning hours represent the more likely time of day to get accumulating snow. Air temperatures will generally be above freezing, so any snow accumulations are likely to melt a few hours after occurring.
An image of a photographer’s work was recently featured on the front page of the Capital Journal, the newspaper of Pierre, South Dakota, and it caught my eye.
Why I am glad that I don’t live in South Dakota. -20°!
