The snow came, but it isn’t staying and there isn’t any more in sight through Christmas Day, according to the National Weather Service.
Meteorologist Johnny Burg said the amount of snow that fell early Friday generally matched the prediction of 1 to 3 inches throughout the area.
Though some areas near Stanwood reported more than 4 inches of snow on the ground, most other areas reported totals coming in at about 1 inch, he said.
The snowfall amounts reported at 8 a.m. on Friday included the following:
Bellevue: 1 inch
Ferndale: 3 inches
Issaquah: 1.1 inches
Kent: 1 inch
SeaTac: 1.1 inches
Seattle: 0.9 inches
Stanwood: 4.5 inches
White Center: 1.2 inches
Woodinville: 2 inches
The National Weather Service is not predicting any more snow through the middle of next week. The next couple of days are expected to be “wet,” according to Burg.
Tuesday is expected to be partly sunny, with high temperatures in the lower to mid-40s, he said, and Christmas Day, on Wednesday, is predicted to be sunny, with highs in the same range.
