Short Break In Winter Weather This Weekend

Updated: January 22 at 9:50am PST

According to several local sources, a little more snow fell than was previously thought. As much as 6 inches of snow has been reported in Georgetown. Highway 193 is in great shape. Some side roads still a little slushy, but overall travel should not be a problem today. The sun even tried to make a brief appearance this morning.

The NWS Winter Weather Advisory has been extended until 8 pm tonight. Another 1-4 inches are expected and snow levels may dip down as low as 1,500 feet. There’s also a chance of thunderstorms which could produce small hail. Monitor the weather before hitting the road. Here’s several photos taken earlier this morning  by countrygirl of Georgetown.

Approximately 2 -3 inches of snow has fallen overnight in and around the Georgetown area. Temps are in the mid-30s this morning, so the snow is already melting. Some snow and ice may be found on some of the less traveled roads, but the plows are already out clearing  Hwy. 193, so travel off the hill today shouldn’t be a problem. Power was out in the Georgetown area for most of the night, but was restored early this morning.

Light showers can be expected the rest of today, with snow showers down to 2,000 feet. Snow showers early tomorrow morning will give way to a partly cloudy weekend with more inclement weather on the way the early next week. Enjoy the short break from the rains.
