We saw a bit of snow today, here and there

Light snow fell on parts of Snohomish County on Monday but it quickly melted and no new snow is expected in the lowlands for the rest of the week, according to the National Weather Service in Seattle.

There was a report of 2 inches of snow on the ground a few miles north of Monroe, and about an inch in Maltby, said meteorologist Johnny Burg.

“Lynnwood got some snow on the ground, but it didn’t last very long,” he said Monday afternoon. Even parts of Seattle saw a few snowflakes, but they didn’t stick around, Burg said.

Action in the convergence zone north of Seattle dropped approximately a foot of snow on Stevens Pass, while Snoqualmie Pass only got a few inches on Monday, he said.

Tuesday is expected to be mostly cloudy in the morning, then mostly sunny in the afternoon and clear through the evening, Burg said.

“It’ll be fairly cool, with highs in the lower to mid-40s,” with temperatures dipping into the upper 20s or mid-30s Tuesday night, he said.

“Things look to warm up” Wednesday and Thursday, followed by cloudy conditions and a chance of rain on Friday. Saturday and Sunday are expected to be mostly cloudy with a chance of showers both days and highs in the lower 50s, Burg said.

“It’s going to get better. Spring is coming — eventually,” he said.
