Light snow fell on parts of Snohomish County on Monday but it quickly melted and no new snow is expected in the lowlands for the rest of the week, according to the National Weather Service in Seattle.
There was a report of 2 inches of snow on the ground a few miles north of Monroe, and about an inch in Maltby, said meteorologist Johnny Burg.
“Lynnwood got some snow on the ground, but it didn’t last very long,” he said Monday afternoon. Even parts of Seattle saw a few snowflakes, but they didn’t stick around, Burg said.
Action in the convergence zone north of Seattle dropped approximately a foot of snow on Stevens Pass, while Snoqualmie Pass only got a few inches on Monday, he said.
