Wow! Now that was a Convergence Zone!
An intense zone floated south through the Puget Sound region bringing rain, then hail, then graupel, then snow...and to top it off -- some thundersnow! You can watch the entire transition -- with some of the thundersnow -- on my Facebook page. I was recording most of it:
The band of rain/snow/thundersnow was on its way out Monday evening and we'll be left with scattered lingering showers of rain or wet snow above a few hundred feet. A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 9 p.m. for Seattle and Eastside, as well as western Skagit and Whatcom Counties for lingering snow showers above 300 feet with minor accumulations possible. Showers will decrease overnight with lows in the low-mid 30s.
A few straggling showers could be around Tuesday morning -- returning the chance of wet snow showers above a few hundred feet with minor accumulations. Showers will increase Tuesday afternoon but so will temperatures into the low 40s so we should be talking about rain.
By Wednesday will be rain showers with highs in the mid 40s and then we get to steadier rains with warmer temperatures toward the upper 40s/low 50s toward the end of the week.
But snow fans, don't give up the snow just yet. Long range models suggest dropping snow levels again over the weekend that may bring additional marginal snow events. March is apparently working on that whole "have to come in like a lion" thing :)
