If you watch the news, you obviously know a big snow storm is on the way. It is predicted to slam Seattle late tonight and tomorrow. In the event this storm drops more than 7 inches in a 24hr period it could be one of the top 10 storms of all time for the city of Seattle. Forecasters are predicting 5-10 inches approximately. In Puyallup, Washington (south of Seattle) I know they are sitting on about 1.5 inches currently. In the event of 9 inches of snow it would be the most in dropped in 27 years.
- The most snow fall in a 24hr period for Seattle was Jan 31st 1916. Amazingly 21.5 inches fell.
- In 1985 – 8 inches of snow fell on Seattle Washington.
- A snow and ice storm in 1996 shut down the city’s Metro for the first time in its history.
