Snow? In Seattle? In November?

3 Nov 2017, 10:21 am

Talk about a rude awakening. The cold winds of winter blew into the Seattle Metro this morning, dropping temperatures by ten degrees in an hour. Snow levels dropped to 100-200 ft, allowing parts of the metro to see some very early season flurries.

Accumulations were less than an inch and the snow quickly turned back to rain as temperatures warmed. Still, with a quick snow during rush hour and limited visibilities, traveling was tough. Seattle-Tacoma airport delayed some flights for more than an hour.

To give you some perspective, Seattle hit 65 degrees on this day last year. November 8, 2016 set a record for the latest 70 degree day in Seattle’s history. Fond memories of autumns past.
