NWS: Hazardous Weather Outlook referring to snow and hail the size of dimes!

Yikes – just noticed this from the National Weather Service.  Forecast can and do change… I hope this one does!

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR THE INTERIOR LOWLANDS OF
WESTERN WASHINGTON.

.DAY ONE…TODAY AND TONIGHT

THE SNOW LEVEL WILL PLUMMET TO NEAR 500 FEET LATE TONIGHT BEHIND A VIGOROUS FRONT…RESULTING IN THE POTENTIAL FOR A DUSTING OR UP TO AN INCH OF SNOW IN PLACES ABOVE THE 500 FOOT LEVEL. THE SNOW SHOULD NOT STICK ON ANY OF THE ROADS AND IF IT DOES…IT SHOULD QUICKLY MELT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

THE AIR MASS WILL BECOME QUITE UNSTABLE ON THURSDAY…RESULTING IN
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WITH HAIL. THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY THAT
THE STRONGER THUNDERSTORMS COULD PRODUCE UP TO DIME SIZE HAIL OR
LARGE QUANTITIES OF HAIL ON THE GROUND. ANTICIPATE GRADUALLY
IMPROVING CONDITIONS THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY AS THE AIR MASS
STABILIZES AND HIGHER PRESSURE MOVES OVER THE REGION.

HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL PREVAIL OVER THE AREA THIS WEEKEND FOR
DRIER AND WARMER WEATHER. ANOTHER LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL BRING UNSETTLED CONDITIONS TO THE REGION MONDAY AND TUESDAY
