No snow for Bellingham area after all


The snow that was in the forecast for Whatcom County’s lowlands didn’t materialize for the most part Monday night, Dec. 9, and it doesn’t appear that it will before the weather warms up Tuesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

Some areas of the county may have gotten light flurries overnight, but nothing significant fell, NWS meteorologist Johnny Burg said.

Though there is still a chance of snow before 10 a.m., if any does fall it should be light. As temperatures warm up, any precipitation that does fall will come down as rain. There is a chance of rain for the rest of the week, with the wettest day expected to be on Thursday, Burg said.
