Snow in forecast for Gig Harbor all week
Probably not, according to the National Weather Service. We’ll have to settle for a white week-before-Christmas.
As of 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 19, the weather service’s forecast for Gig Harbor calls for at least a chance of snow every day this week.
An inch or more of snow could fall on Tuesday in Gig Harbor. A winter storm watch issued by the weather service predicts total accumulation of two to seven inches in some spots in the region through Tuesday evening.
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, however, are expected to be rainy, with temperatures in the 40s.
