Christmas Morning: Possible Snow in Western Washington

Two to 4 inches of snow possible in the Hood Canal, Kitsap Penninsula and parts of SW Washington. Light accumulations are possible on higher hills or away from bodies of water like Puget Sound.

Pierce County Alert issued the following statement:

Snow possible Christmas morning in parts of the Western Washington interior. Skies are expected to partially clear Christmas Eve, permitting temperatures to cool close to freezing early Christmas morning just as moisture from an incoming Pacific frontal system arrives. 

The precipitation will be rain along the coast near midnight but could start as snow in the interior of Western Washington early Christmas morning. 

Two to 4 inches possible in the Hood Canal, Kitsap Penninsula and parts of SW Washington. Light accumulations are possible on higher hills or away from bodies of water like Puget Sound. 

The precipitation in the interior is expected to turn over to all rain by midday. The exception is over the Hood Canal where it is possible it will be slower. 

If you are planning any travel on Christmas Day be prepared for the potential of adverse winter weather driving conditions.
