They're now predicting some real accumulation. Won't that be interesting? Gotta go to storage and get the snow tires today!

My co-worker said he heard 18" possible. I'll have to check the forecast myself, but that would sure be a big start.

Winter storm bringing snow to the Cascade Range

By Debra Smith
Herald Writer
Better throw your snow chains in the trunk if
youre heading over the pass.

The National Weather Service in Seattle has
issued a winter storm warning for the mountains
through 5 p.m. Tuesday. The forecast calls for
up to a foot of snow through Tuesday morning,
with heavier amounts possible between Stevens
and Snoqualmie Pass.

Snow began falling this morning at Stevens Pass,
said Dennis D'Amico, a weather service meteorologist
in Seattle. A cool system could bring even more
snow to the mountains later this week, he said.
Two more storms are heading toward the mountains.

Its common for snow to start falling in the
mountains in October, DAmico said.

The weather service is predicting a warmer, drier
winter than last year, he said.

I missed seeing actual snow, saw some snain

I also saw someone headed eastbound didn't make the curve there at 53. Looked like a bad accident. Some people and either a tow truck or DOT vehicle had already stopped so we kept going. I think they likely hydroplaned, as it had been raining very, very hard.

Lots of lightning tonight too. Didn't hear any thunder but saw 5 or 6 bright flashes between North Bend and the summit.

Here we goooooo!

Just heard some serious sounding thunder. I think we're cooling down another notch! Also just saw a few flakes :D

It is SNOWING at Hyak.
Finally, some real accumulation!

It's still dark out but there's at least 2" at my place at the base of Hyak. I'd bet there's more at your place since you're a little bit higher up the hill, eh Jack?

I'm sure the hills got a fair amount, we were just on the verge a lot yesterday and got some pretty wet stuff.

NWAC shows both the Keechelus and the Alpy levels at 5" or so.

The snow's falling again and according to the radar and predictions we should get some real measurable stuff. Stack's talking about going out toward Kendall or similar to see if he can get a little cross country action later today!
