Weather with Cliff Mass
Fri December 7, 2012
Chillier and drier will bring white fluffy stuff to the passes
The weather pattern has shifted, and that means less rain, more chills, says Atmospheric Scientist Cliff Mass, of the University of Washington.
The pattern is giddy news for mountain ski areas, all of which should be open with light, fluffy snow this weekend, he says.
Don't worry, though, the snow should stay away from the Puget Sound lowlands, although the higher foothills may get a dusting tonight or Saturday morning.
And if you're starting to get the winter glumness, complaining about persistent rain, Mass has an argument for why it's not as bad as you think, in this week's conversation (click the "listen" button above).
The weekly KPLU feature "Weather with Cliff Mass" airs every Friday at 9 a.m. immediately following BirdNote, and repeats twice on Friday afternoons during All Things Considered. The feature is hosted by KPLU’s Science and Health reporter Keith Seinfeld. Cliff Mass is a University of Washington Professor of Atmospheric Sciences, a renowned Seattle weather prognosticator, and a popular weather blogger.
