It’s snowing in some areas, but it isn’t expected to be a lot

Snow began falling early Wednesday evening in Everett and other areas around the Snohomish/King County border, but don’t expect a lot.

Earlier predictions of a possible 15 inches have been pared back, said Johnny Burg, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. About 10 inches fell on Mount Baker today. Snoqualmie and Stevens passes — where it was snowing as of early evening — should get just 1 to 3 inches overnight. The Everett area could wake up to a dusting, as well.

The same thing is expected for the region on Thursday morning — light snow, with little accumulation. But by evening, the weather is expected to be dry.

Predicted highs in Seattle on Thursday and Friday will approach 40 degrees. Nighttime lows could dip down into the mid- to upper 20s.

The low temperatures, combined with moisture on the roads, could cause “some black ice and some headaches for people driving,” Burg added.
