Mass: 'Extensive Lowland Snow' Likely Friday Morning
Snow in the lowlands may snarl Friday's morning commute, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass.
“Models are still suggesting that there will be extensive lowland snow on Friday morning, between roughly 1 to 2 a.m. and 10 a.m.,” said Mass, who teaches atmospheric sciences at the University of Washington, on his weather blog.
The Cascades will see about a foot of snow, said Mass, and the snow will extend into northwest Washington over Seattle and the Eastside.
“The commute on Friday morning could well be problematic for many, so be prepared for it,” said Mass.
The National Weather Service said some spots could see 2 to 4 inches of snow, which will accumulate. But Friday afternoon, temperatures will warm and the snow will turn into rain.
The weekly KPLU feature "Weather with Cliff Mass" airs every Friday at 9 a.m. immediately following BirdNote, and twice on Friday afternoons during All Things Considered. The feature is hosted by KPLU Environment Reporter Bellamy Pailthorp. Cliff Mass is a University of Washington Professor of Atmospheric Sciences, a renowned Seattle weather prognosticator, and a popular weather blogger.
