A winter storm warning for Kitsap County was canceled on Tuesday afternoon.
Warm temperatures that accompanied increasing southerly winds turned snow to rain in many areas, said Mary Butwin, National Weather Service meteorologist.
Snow was brief at lower elevations, but there was still the possibility of 2-3 inches on Tuesday night in the high hills of the Kitsap Peninsula, Butwin said.
But that snow is forecast to be short-lived with temperatures above freezing overnight.

Lingering “post-frontal” showers are predicted for Wednesday and Thursday. While temperatures could drop to bring some snow, there will be minimal accumulation, Butwin said.
The next system, moving on Friday, could bring potential for snow.
