Snow showers moved through the Seattle area Saturday morning, but the National Weather Service said it probably wouldn’t last beyond noon and it wouldn’t stick.

Johnny Burg, meteorologist, said about 1 inch of snow could accumulate at elevations above 500 feet, but with a mid-morning temperature in Seattle of 37 degrees, he said the snow wouldn’t last.

A convergence zone moving north and northeast over the city will likely bring isolated rain showers and showers mixed with snow through the afternoon, he said.

The weather overnight is expected to be mostly cloudy with scattered showers, some mixed with snow, and temperatures in the mid-30s.

By the way, Tuesday is the start of spring.
