Seattle, Washington

Well, currently at VW HQ, winds are gusting to nearly 40mph and the snow is falling hard. And tomorrow is gonna be even worse, with somewhere around a foot of snow possible. Let’s go visit somewhere where they’re probably NOT going to get a foot of snow, shall we?

At 853pm PDT, the temperature at Seattle-Tacoma Intl Airport, WA was 49 degrees under overcast skies. Okay, well, at least they’re not getting snow, but it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows over the next couple of days in the Emerald City. A cold front is slowly working its way through the Pacific Northwest, spreading scattered showers throughout the region and especially up in the mountains. This system isn’t moving particularly fast. In fact, another impulse is expected to ride along the front Saturday night into Sunday morning, bringing a bit of heavier rain shower activity to the SeaTac region. The main part of the system looks to push onshore over OR/N CA Sunday evening, and while the bulk of heavy rain will stay to the south, scattered showers will linger throughout the day Sunday over the area. Much of the Pacific Northwest looks to remain gloomy into the start of next week as a large upper low sits over the region.
