SEATTLE – If you haven’t dug your coat out of the closet yet, it’s time.

Snow is coming to the mountains, and the lowlands will experience their coldest day in five months Wednesday, Q13 News meteorologist Walter Kelley said on Tuesday.

Kelley said the high temperatures through Friday will be in the low 50s, the lowest since May.

Unsettled weather continues. Sun, hail, mountain snow, isolated thunderstorms, passing showers, chilly, breezy and more for your Thursday.

Thursday morning looks pretty darn wet from Burien to Chehalis with the heaviest rain around Tacoma. Crystal Mountain and Mount Rainier could see at least 8 inches of new snow! Thursday afternoon will have some sun breaks with passing showers and isolated thunderstorms.

Friday looks snowy for the mountains but the metro area should be fairly pleasant.

The weekend looks dry and pretty nice, enjoy.

Because we're looking at the first real Western Washington storms of the season next Tuesday and Wednesday. This system looks really wet and gusty.
