I grew up and lived in Seattle for 25 years; you don't need snow tires unless you are going take your car up into Stevens or Snoqualmie Pass. Even when it snows it usually rains within a couple days and most of it is gone by then. With the amount of hills around even if you did have snow tires during a strong winter storm it isn't going to help enough and you'll be one of the idiots on King 5 News that is videotaped sliding down a hill running into 15 parked cars along the way. I had all seasons on my 330i and they were just fine as long as you avoid the steep residential roads during a heavy snow.
