White Christmas might be more than just a dream, but don't expect it to be too dramatic
SEATTLE – A white Christmas might be more than just a dream in Western Washington, according to the latest weather forecasts.
As of early Monday afternoon, forecast models were predicting that the snow level on Christmas could be anywhere from 500 feet to ground level.
“The chance for a white Christmas is slim but some folks away from the Metro will have a better chance to get a little snow on Christmas,” said Q13 News meteorologist Tim Joyce. “The last time snow was on the ground for Christmas was 2008. There was some snow in 2012, but not in Seattle.”
Some areas of Western Washington were hit with snow Monday morning, including Belfair, Seabeck and Tahuya.
Up to two more feet of snow are expected in the Cascades over the next two days. A winter weather advisory is in effect in parts of Eastern Washington until Tuesday morning at 4 a.m.
Historically, white Christmases are somewhat rare in Western Washington. Download our free weather app for the very latest info.
