Listen: Seabrook, Shannon And Shelton Brab discussed on News, Traffic and Weather
"Tonight, Shannon. We're talking about freezing. Some of the slush turning to freezing just ground. Really? Yeah. You know, the snow if you try to walk through it right now, it's got that crunchy top to it earlier today. It was that smokes. She slashes we were dying out. So we're definitely heading into the deep freeze tonight. If you've got a snowman you've been trying to hang onto or a snow structure, it's gonna freeze over and stay put we've been showing you all along some of the fun scenes people just kind of making the best of it. This was from Brad and Shelton. He is a construction worker and the snow like so many of us kept him from going to work business on hold until the snow gets cleared. So he got so bored. He put his construction skills to work and created this ten foot snow Drake and in his driveway. First time he's ever made a school snow sculpture pretty successful job there this afternoon in Shelton brab. This is the view over downtown a starry sky. That's good. It's allowing us to freeze up. We had all of that melting snow and slush today. Kind of rivers of it running down the street. Now, it's starting to ice over we have dropped a freezing even in Seattle. Outlying areas are going to be even colder and the cloud cover. Not doing us a solid tonight. It's starting to part ways with us for a little while. And when the holes were poking through it allowing any heat we did pick up today to escape, and it's just getting colder and colder out there. It's thirty two right now in Bremerton, we're down to thirty one in port Angeles so solidly freezing at this point twenty eight out of Bellingham right around freezing Olympia bottom line. Most of us are going to freeze up overnight and expect those morning commute areas. Especially on the side roads to be frozen over once again and be rather slippery at least for a couple of hours afternoon high today thirty nine now, we should be closer to fifty thirty nine that was perfect because it just thought us out enough to get a little bit of meltoff going on if we were any warmer. We'd have a lot more water standing in places that we were trying to drive through and we'd have some localized flooding. So a slow up is exactly what we're going for over the next couple of days that would be ideal satellite pictures, showing you this disturbance we've been kind of dreading on Thursday for Valentine's Day too. Because to get more precipitation on top of what we've already. Had definitely not the thing. We're looking to see happen. But this is a weak disturbance. It is still cold out there when it comes in midday tomorrow, some of the precipitation may begin as a little bit of very short lived, wet snow or even some freezing rain, particularly in the same spots that have been so hard hit like north bend. Snoqualmie ridge in the foothills, but it will not last long warm air should scour out the cold pretty quickly. So any frozen precipitation the snow the freezing rain again pretty short lived. And then we head back over to all rain for just about everybody. Overnight lows dropping off into the twenty to thirty. So we've talked about that slippery morning commute again tomorrow, increasing clouds, but look at the temperatures back into the low to mid forties. Rain really taking over it'll be a light rain any rain on top of that snow. Of course, makes it very heavy. We will end up with some more flooding, maybe a few more collapsed structures out there as results. So hopefully, you were able to clear the snow office some of those carports and whatnot. In advance of the storm tomorrow. We'll see the rain increasing around Friday harbor upper thirty s for the San Juans ocean beaches back into the low forty s. Good rainy day. They're Seabrook for Valentine's Day as well. East of the cascades will see a mixture of snow, freezing, rain and rain so travel. There is going to be tricky because it's quite a bit cooler and up over the cascades, if you have to get over the passes for Valentine's Day, they should be looking better. We will see some more snow but another four to seven inches nothing. The plows up there can't handle hopefully, we're open to get I ninety completely opened as we head toward tomorrow. What about thereafter, anymore low and snow events coming up as we head into the weekend. We'll check on the rest of the forecast coming up in just a few more minutes. All right. Thanks, shannon. Tonight. A family of five that was stuck in the snow for twenty eight hours says being rescued was their only option Peter Brown and his family got stuck in knee-deep snow near the gold Meyer. Hot springs about."
