Are you ready for winter? Live chat Wednesday at 10 a.m.

We could face another La Niña winter this year. The big story of the winter – heavy snowfall ­– could hit in February and last into early March, said Ken Clark, AccuWeather.com’s Western U.S. expert.  Although overall precipitation during that period may not be above normal, more of it is expected to fall as snow, as frigid conditions spread from the Pacific Coast to the Rocky Mountains. Talk about how to deal with it and what to expect with a pair of Seattle city transportation officials and a local weather expert during a live chat on Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 10 to 11 a.m. Submit questions in advance of the chat. Times reporter Mike Lindblom will moderate the discussion.


Panelists:

Rick Sheridan, communications manager, Seattle Department of Transportation

Rick serves as a communications manager for SDOT and is often the communications point person on the city’s winter storm response.

Ted Buehner, meteorologist, National Weather Service of Seattle

Ted is a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Seattle. He also helps communities prepare for weather emergencies.

 Linda Thielke, spokeswoman, King County Metro Transit

Linda is a spokeswoman for King County Metro. She will be assisted by a Metro transit team of staff from the Operations, Scheduling, and Communications groups who will talk about what you need to know about riding the bus during winter storms.
