Original – Snowpocalypse 2011 it ain’t.
Fremonsters are waking up Thursday morning to find a little bit of snow on their cars, lawns and sidewalks but that’s about it. There is a dusting up to an inch on the ground in Fremont this morning but the roads looks pretty clear.
The forecast does call for a trace to 1 inch more later today.
It’s currently 29 degrees out with a high of 35 expected, so stay snug.
Metro buses are on snow routes this morning, here’s SDOT’s first report of the day:
Most city streets are bare and wet this morning. Crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation are treating major arterial streets to guard against the formation of ice in advance of the morning commute period. Snowfall last night was highly variable around the city. Beacon Hill, southern Rainier Valley, and higher parts of West Seattle appear to have had the most snow.
