, Wash. - Residents in Western Washington's Convergence Zone received a winter's flashback Wednesday morning.

Snow and hail fell in several locations, catching many by surprise.

"We got two inches," said Kelvin Lawrence of Granite Falls. The city cooled off enough to see snow fall and stick around throughout the afternoon until the sun began to melt things.

"Not a pretty thing to wake up to in April," said Michelle Stetka. "I'm ready for spring."

A winter storm warning remained in effect for the Olympics and Cascade Range Wednesday morning.

"It's been a chilly morning out there. Snow levels this morning were running right around 1,500 to 2,000 feet. So, with heavy showers you can drive that snow all the way down that far to get it near sea level," said KING 5 Meteorologist Rich Marriott. "It was pretty consistently up around the Everett area out towards Lake Stevens and Granite Falls. And that pushed the snow down to the surface in those areas."

KING 5 viewers sent in several pictures showing light snow falling and accumulating on the ground.

More showers have been forecast for the area during the day with possible thunder showers or ice pellet showers in the evening hours, said Marriott.

Snohomish County did not dispatch any sand trucks because the roads never became a problem.
