Snow has been falling in Green Lake today (Monday, Nov 22, 2010).

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory, in effect until 10 p.m. tonight.  The weather advisory indicates that we can expect 2-6 inches of snow, and that gusty winds could result in local power outages.

Weather expert Cliff Mass wrote in a blog post this morning that “the worst [of the area's snow fall] is in a narrow band over north Seattle.”

We have confirmed that the  Green Lake Community Center and Evans Pool are open, although classes after 6 p.m. are canceled.  The community center is open for drop-in use until 9 p.m.  All Seattle Parks and Recreation athletic fields are closed.

The Green Lake Library is scheduled to open at it’s regular opening time, 1 p.m.

Woodland Park Zoo will close early today, at  3:00 p.m.

King County Metro buses are on snow routes. Note in particular this information from Metro about Route 16:

Route 16 is not serving regular stops in the Greenlake area between N 45th St and N 80th St or eastbound on NE 100th St just west of 4 Av NE at Northgate. In the Green Lake area, use the stops north of N 80th St or south of N 45th St. Or use stops on Greenlake DR N along the reroute.

Seattle Public Schools has announced that Middle and High Schools will dismiss early today at 12:35 p.m.  Activities (including parent-teacher conferences) at all Seattle Public Schools are canceled after 12:35 p.m.  Tonight’s Student Assignment Transition Plan Northwest region meeting at Ingraham High School has been canceled.

From Nancy: "My little kitty took ONE step out onto the back porch this morning. She turned right around and came back into the warm house, but left an adorable footprint behind."

    My son and daughterinlaw live a few blocks from Green Lake. We spent 3 weeks in July with them and very much enjoyed the area and Seattle. He sent me your blog and it was fun to see the area with snow.
