Puget Sound area wakes up to snow

As daylight came to the Seattle area Saturday morning, reports were coming in via social media (see below) of anywhere from a dusting to up to 3 inches of snow on the ground. This followed heavy rain on Friday.

On the Eastside, Duval, Redmond and North Bend are reporting up to 3 inches, said meteorologist Johnny Burg of the National Weather Service in Seattle. To the south, Federal Way had about 1.2 inches. Up north, Edmonds reported about 0.8 inches and farther north in Whatcom County, Ferndale had about a half inch.

The last time the Seattle area had snow this early was in 2010 when SeaTac reported 2.5 inches on November 22, Burg said.

The National Weather Service now predicts the snow will end by about 11 a.m. Saturday. There will be gradual clearing after that, with a high of only 34 and a slight chance of snow throughout the day, Burg said. It will be breezy with north winds of 14 to 16 mph.

Saturday night will be mostly clear, but cold, dropping down to the mid 20s in the Seattle area. Sunday will be in the mid to upper 30s and dry.

Here are snow reports and pictures from Twitter:
