Seattle – Snowiest February in 70 years

Also record cold.

This is already the city’s snowiest February since 1949 and another two rounds of snow are on the way, according to AccuWeather.

The next storm, with 1-2 inches of snow, is forecast to hit late this afternoon. Another 3-6 inches is expected on Monday afternoon into Tuesday.

The first storm, on Friday night into Saturday, dumped 6-10 inches of snow on the area, emptied grocery story shelves, shuttered schools and made travel treacherous.

Seattle normally averages only 0.7 inch of snow during the entire month of February.

The snow has been accompanied by record cold.

High temperatures were expected in the upper 20s to low 30s (Fahrenheit), with wind chills from 17 to 22 degrees.
