Snow drops down into Maple Leaf, Wedgwood this a.m.

Posted by Mike on March 22nd, 2013

After staying to the north of us all week, pestering the folks from Everett to Shoreline, the Puget Sound Convergence Zone dropped south around 7:40 this morning. No doubt to celebrate the first week of spring.

It’s snowing steadily at 8:30 a.m. in Maple Leaf. Nothing’s sticking, though. Outside air temperature right at 34 degrees, and the air is still. When I left Wedgwood at 7:50 a.m., it was snowing lightly.

Snow also being reported at the Wedgwood, Green Lake, Wallingford, Phinney Ridge and Greenwood neighborhoods.

Traffic was snarled to the north earlier this morning, and several main highways were closed during the past 12 hours or so.

From the forecast discussion issued around 3 a.m.:

THE SNOW LEVEL WILL BE BELOW 1000 FT AGAIN EARLY THIS MORNING WITH
SHOWERS FALLING LOCALLY AS SNOW OVER THE LOWLANDS. PRECIPITATION
AMOUNTS IN THE CONVERGENCE ZONE MIGHT BE UP TO 0.20 INCH TODAY...
WHICH WILL RESULT IN LOCAL ACCUMULATIONS OF AN INCH OF SNOW. THERE
WILL LITTLE OR NO ACCUMULATION ELSEWHERE
