Spring arrives at 10:14 tonight, but spring ain’t exactly sprung in Edmonds and the rest of Puget Sound yet.
While most of the country east of the Continental Divide basks in warm weather thanks to a big dip in the jet stream, the Western U.S. seems to want to hang onto winter just a little longer.
On Sunday, a late-afternoon storm produced cracking thunder and dropped snow on Edmonds. This was after Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Day bullet-sized hail.
There is hope. Today, the snow is melting quickly downtown, although it will take a little longer in higher elevations such as Westgate.
Of course, the sunbreaks may not last long. The National Weather Service is calling for a 100 percent chance of rain tonight in Edmonds, with the low temperature at 40.
It’s not until Thursday night that the Weather Service predicts only a chance of showers.
