Listen: Shannon O'donnell, Grand Manan Sheila And Tacoma discussed on News, Traffic and Weather
"Right now on the fees keeping a close eye on the radar. Our streak of dry weather is over. Sure is the rain is back, and it's still cold that could mean we see some icy spots this weekend. And Shannon O'Donnell here with all the details. Shannon. You know what? The worst thing to drive over is freezing. Rain. We've got the still very cold surfaces at the ground. And now, the warmer rain writing over the top of it that is a recipe for freezing rain may be a little sleet around too. So something to keep in mind as we head into our early Saturday morning, if you're out driving late tonight temperatures are still at or below freezing in the south sound from Tacoma to Olympia and also in Bellingham and here comes the precipitation, mainly green indicative of mainly rain falling. But even if you see the rain coming down hitting the pavement hitting your windshield. It's still could be freezing on impact. And there you see a little bit of that mixed precipitation showing up around highway twelve and back toward grand Manan sheila's too. So there are some spots where we may see some mixed rain and snow tonight to here's the timing slick roads possible overnight the precipitation really arriving in the sound over the next couple of hours. It's so light. It's really weak disturbance. But it will drop a little bit of light rain or some wet snow in spots. Best chance for that. Wet snow or sleet will be in the foothills. Most of it a rap by the time we wake up on Saturday morning, not expecting any accumulations. But again driving the next few hours could prove slippery, be careful. Thank you, Shannon. The cascades, of course, starving for snow. Take a look at the snow pack numbers here. Snoqualmie pass had ninety six inches. This time last year right now, it has a paltry eighteen inches of total snowfall same story at Stevens hundred eleven inches a year ago tonight, just forty four inches alive.."
