UPDATE: The morning’s patches have been replaced by a five-inch coat of snow across most of Capitol Hill. It’s been a lot of fun but there have also been the typical problems with Metro buses and a drag of a power outage for some 3,800 customers in parts of the Hill. Details, pictures and video, below.
UPDATE: And a bump to Sunday morning where we find a light dusting of snow in tiny patches on the Hill and reports rolling in from elsewhere in the city — West Seattle, Ballard — and the region of lightly falling snow.
Here’s more of what to expect today and Monday from the Seattle Times.
Saturday: With a quiet Saturday around the Hill and the city all atwitter about our first snow — and interesting weather — for a long time, we’re posting this open thread. Latest forecasts predict wet snow here and there through the day with things maybe getting a little more serious Sunday morning. If things get even more interesting, we’ll swing into neighborhood news blog action. We’re also monitoring this afternoon’s protest march planned to finish at 12th and Pine’s East Precinct headquarters.
We’ve also added the CHS weather box back to the homepage sidebar if you want to check the temperature in Volunteer Park or latest conditions around the neighborhood.
