Weather service forecasts snow Wednesday in Clark County

first_imgSouthwest Washington is likely to see snow Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service, and as of Tuesday night, Woodland Public Schools had already made the call to dismiss students two hours early this afternoon.Though there was uncertainty with Wednesday’s forecast in the beginning of the week, meteorologists for the weather service said that data gathered through Tuesday gave them more confidence in their prediction for snow Wednesday afternoon.“Where the question remains is, what will the accumulation be?” meteorologist Matthew Cullen said.Amanda Bowen, another meteorologist, said some of the forecasters’ computer models started jibing as Tuesday went on, which has helped forecasters feel a bit more confident about 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation Wednesday.It could be a bit more, it could be a bit less, she said.“There are a lot of different computer models that we look at, and they all have a slightly different idea of what’s going to happen,” she said.Snow aside, forecasters expect a high temperature near 33 degrees Wednesday, with breezy winds in the 18- to 22-mph range, and gusts of up to 34 mph.last_img read more
