With winter half-over and mild weather holding for Seattle, the city could make it through the season without a significant snowfall.
The National Weather Service says there was .6 of an inch recorded on Dec. 18 at Sea-Tac Airport, but that was it. It was cold enough in January, but often dry.
Meteorologist Johnny Burg says the chance for significant snow in Seattle is diminishing but can’t be ruled out, even into March.
He says Seattle typically goes without winter snow only once or twice a decade.
Meanwhile, snow has been falling in the Olympics and Cascades and the snowpack is close to normal.

Hoping for a big snowfall down low this week? If you’re living in Seattle, chances are you’ll have to keep waiting.
Much of the Puget Sound Region is getting what you would expect, that typical Seattle rain, says National Weather Service Meteorologist Steve Reedy. While temperatures are expected to drop, the intensity of the rain is expected to ease up today and that means snow here isn’t likely.
People living around Everett and to the north and in the higher elevations might see a dusting of snow Thursday night. A few folks in Seattle might see a few flurries as well, Reedy said.
In the Seattle-area, expect temperatures around 48 degrees today, dipping to the mid 30s tonight. The rest of the week, daytime temperatures will hover around 40, Reedy said.
If you’re looking for snow, head to the mountains, where a winter storm warning has been issued from Snohomish County and north, with up to 15 inches of snow expected to fall.

By the time you read this, chances are the flurries of snow in Seattle will have come and gone, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Johnny Burg.
“This thing is going to be over soon unless another little shower develops,” Burg said.
There were reports of 1 to 2 inches of snow on the ground at several locations in Pierce and Thurston counties on Tuesday. In addition, he said, the weather service received reports of 4 inches of snow in Enumclaw and Eatonville and one report of 7.5 inches at a location east of Issaquah with an altitude of 1,375 feet above sea level.
While there could be rain and snow showers across the Puget Sound region overnight, there is not much accumulation expected except around the Hood Canal, Burg said. There, a winter storm watch is in effect and as much as 6 inches of snow could be on the ground by Wednesday morning.
Temperatures are expected to creep up on Wednesday, he said, and the precipitation will “all turn to rain by noon or later.”
By Wednesday night, he said temperatures should rise to about 40 degrees, and Thursday should be breezy and rainy, but warmer with a high near 50 degrees.

A wintry mix will fall in the Seattle area and around Puget Sound this evening, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service said Tuesday afternoon.
Areas in the region above 500 feet could see up to an inch of snow. All areas below that could see some snow, but no accumulation, said meteorologist Dennis D’Amico.
Elsewhere, the Weather Service has already seen reports of snow today, including some east of Aberdeen and in the Hood Canal area, D’Amico said.
The wintry mix, which below 500 feet will consist mostly of cold rain, will last overnight. There’s a chance of rain showers in the Seattle area Wednesday morning.

Blistering wind, frigid temperatures, towering waves — and that’s just Saturday.
Western Washington could be in for some crazy weather this weekend.
The National Weather Service has issued high-wind advisories — winds of up to 30 mph with gusts of up to 45 mph — for the Puget Sound region for much of Saturday.
Saturday night, frigid air is expected to swoop in, bringing the possibility of up to half an inch of snow to Seattle, the weather service says. But the real snow will come to the Cascades, where up to 3 feet is possible.
Meanwhile, the coast will be battered by high winds and waves up to 25 feet tall.
Things start clearing and warming Monday, however.

A section of West Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast damaged in a recent mudslide will likely remain closed until March or early April, Bellevue city officials say.
“Our crews plan to work as quickly as possible to reopen a roadway that is safe and stable for all,” said Dave Berg, Bellevue’s transportation director.
No one was hurt in the Jan. 22 mudslide, but four properties were damaged.
Berg said the estimated cost for the road construction work and repair of a broken water main is estimated at $500,000.
It has not been determined whether the water main break caused the mudslide or vice versa, but the city has acknowledged responsibility and will help owners restore their properties, Berg said. Those costs are not yet known.
The current detour will remain in effect during the closure.
