The Winter Weather Advisory that had drivers on high alert Tuesday morning was canceled by the National Weather Service around 8:40 a.m.
The advisory called for up to 3 inches of snow in the lowlands from Tacoma south past Chehalis and Aberdeen east to the Cascades.
In defense of meteorologists: Don’t get mad at forecasts
Up to 1 inch of snow was estimated to fall between Bremerton and Seattle and into neighboring communities.
Temperatures were too warm for snow to become a reality.
The canceled advisory doesn’t mean roads weren’t dangerous. Ice created slick surfaces around the Puget Sound region.
Dozens of schools were on two-hour delay Tuesday morning. Many buses were on snow routes.
Forecast models show Western Washington warming up over the next few days. By Friday, highs will be in the upper-30s. Over the weekend we could see highs in the mid-40s.
