Whether North Olympic Peninsula sees lowland snow tonight depends on where you are

Peninsula Daily News

Forecasts of lowland snow in the region for tonight and early Friday are concentrating on areas east of Discovery Bay to the Cascades, according to current National Weather Service forecasts.

That means Port Townsend, Port Ludlow and the Hood Canal communities could see measurable snow tonight.

Flakes could be seen in Sequim, Port Angeles and points west, but the chances of snow sticking to the ground Friday are less than those in the convergence zone over Puget Sound, forecasters said this morning.

In the Port Angeles-Sequim area, if there's any overnight snow, it will be washed away by rain around 10 a.m. Friday, the Weather Service said.

In East Jefferson County, not only will there be larger accumulations of snow until around noon — again, with afternoon rain washing the white stuff away — but cold, blustery winds with gusts between 20 mph and 30 mph will make things even more unpleasant in Port Townsend and environs.
