Above: A Pierce County snow plow at work by the Longbranch Marina on the Key Peninsula Highway early morning Jan. 18, 2012. We had almost a foot of snow on the Key Peninsula that day.
This according to the Cliff Mass weather blog:
I am getting a number of folks asking about whether there will be lowland snow this winter. Even the Seattle PI had a story about the fears of a snowless winter. I know Mayor McGinn and his staff would be disappointed…they are READY for snow, with lots of trucks, deicer, and road sensors providing real-time data.
For lowland snow lovers, the situation does not look too good during the next week. Snow levels will decline to perhaps 1000-1500 ft–not good enough. And northwesterly flow rain shadows many of you. But there is still time….the lowlands can get significant snow into the first week of March, but after that the chances drop quickly.
