12" of Snow–Winter Strom Warning

News Flash: Winter Storm Warning Update

Through the night the Leavenworth Upper Valley received over twelve inches of snow far exceeding the seven inches of snow forecasted for the nighttime accumulation. It looks as if winter is just getting started and there is little sign of the snow letting up.

Many people in the Leavenworth Upper Valley have said, since last spring we have been running about a month behind in our norm for weather. Add to that theory the snowfall over the last few days, especially with the winter storm that hit the Plain and Lake Wenatchee area.

“The snow we’ve received lately is more like the snow storms we normally get in January. And if that’s the case we could get a lot more snow throughout March”.

February snowfall in the Leavenworth Upper Valley is normally modest amounts but could add up to a few feet. Which means Plain and Lake Wenatchee area could still receive record snowfall for the month of March. Visitor and local residents should anticipate an extended winter and sudden snow storms.

Leavenworth Upper Valley

The Leavenworth Upper Valley is receiving snow for the second day in a row. Yesterday the Upper Valley received 1 1/2 inches of snow as winter season tries to hang on and deliver more fun with fresh snow.

Today it is snowing and the Upper Valley has already received about 1/2 inch of fresh snow this morning. The new snow has blanketed the area providing a beautiful backdrop and may allow for more snowshoeing and cross country skiing.

Current forecast is calling for snow off and on the rest of the week with a storm expected to leave up to four inches of snow on Thursday.

Remember, winter driving conditions are still in effect and people should drive accordingly. Even if roads appear to be clear of snow, there is a chance of black ice or frozen slush on the highways.

More Snow In Forecast

Winter has not given up yet. Weather forecast shows we should be receiving snow off and on for the next week. We received about a 1/2 inch of new snow last night and are expecting more; not a lot of snow but more.

With weather temperatures reaching close to forty degrees over the last two weeks, most people were thinking winter maybe be over and we are heading into an early spring.  This may still hold true but for now… Snow is in the forecast.

The light dusting we received last night added a beautiful blanket covering tree branches giving the area a look similar to the beginning of a winter season. However, with blue sky already this morning, it is more like an early spring snow.
