NASELLE - The extended winter-like weather conditions continued for the Naselle area at least through Sunday, April 20. Snow, hail and low temperatures were the norm for the last three days of the week and extended into the beginning of the next week. Snow accumulation in the lowlands of the Naselle area didn't amount to much more than a coating of the white stuff, but brief heavy snow showers did occur during a couple of those days. The temperature dipped below freezing at night during that time and the daily highs were only in the 40s. The lows were record setting, or near record lows, for the date.
In contrast to some northern areas of the west side of the state, the Naselle area got off easy. For example, Everett had eight inches of snow, with up to 11 inches in some of the small towns north of that city. One consolation is that the lawn doesn't need to be mowed as often as usual.
