Snow could strike Kent, Western Washington late Thursday night

A couple of inches of snow could hit the Kent area between Thursday evening and Friday afternoon.

The National Weather Service in Seattle issued on Wednesday a winter storm watch for Western Washington from Thursday evening through Friday afternoon.

Up to two inches of snow could fall around Tacoma and two to four inches from Seattle northward. The snow is predicted to hit late Thursday night and continue to late Friday morning, possibly impacting the morning commute.

A winter storm watch means conditions are favorable for severe winter weather.

If warm south winds are more effective than expected, the snow amounts will be less.
