Seattle Snow Storm: Forecast disclosed to Hit Pacific Northwest, Worst Case Since 1985


The Pacific Northwest is experiencing now a major Seattle snow storm expected to hit the region late Tuesday and to continue until midnight Wednesday. The Seattle snow storm could also bring a large amount of snow to Seattle and in other cities in the Pugent Sound. Meanwhile, there is also uncertainty about how much snow the storm might bring since the storm is forecast to yield anywhere from 5 to 18 inches of snow in Seattle.

“Snowfall amounts at Sea-tac could exceed anything seen since November 1985, a top five record 24-hour snowfall amount,” the National Weather Service claims.

“It will be snowing everywhere on Wednesday. Not showers, but heavy, widespread snowfall all day,” said Chris Burke of the National Weather Service.

As implied in some report, gf Wednesday’s snowfall hits at the high end of the forecast range, it would be the biggest single-day snowfall in Seattle since 14.9 inches fell on Jan. 27, 1969, Burke said. The area also had more than 14 inches of snow in November 1985, but it fell over two successive storms.

Following the storm, snow may give way to rain later in the week, leading to more typical weather for the winter months in the region. Temperatures should rise Thursday and Friday, followed by an expected weekend forecast of rain with temperatures in the mid-40s.
