See the 'snowy' Convergence Zone in action

The spits of snow here and there across the southern Puget Sound area Monday morning was due in part to a weak Puget Sound Convergence Zone.

Here is a great time lapse video of the event, courtesy of Dr. Dale Ireland's web camera over in Silverdale:

Notice how the southerly and northerly winds battle it out right over the Hood Canal.

Normally, the Convergence Zone's playground is farther north, but today, it the northerly wind component was a bit stronger, keeping the zone down south.

You can read more about the morning snow and how it's not quite time to dust off the snow panic manual, in my article on the main news site page.
