Second round of snow likely for most areas, beginning late Saturday night

SEATTLE — A rain/snow mix is likely to fall in most towns throughout Western Washington  on Saturday evening, turning to snow for many by the end of the night.

Some points north may begin to see steady snow by 7 p.m. Spots further south will see the changeover closer to 10 or 11 p.m.

Overnight lows will drop to mid or upper 30s, and snow levels are expected to fall to 200 feet or lower by Sunday morning.

Lowland areas will see anywhere from trace amounts of snow to 3 inches.

HEADLINES

  • Heaviest precipitation will likely fall along a track from Mason, Thurston and Lewis counties north over Puget Sound and the Strait
  • Snow amounts could potentially reach warning criteria along Hood Canal and in Mason County
  • Rain/snow mix possible, even down to sea-level with mainly wet snow above a few hundred feet through early/mid-day Sunday. Tapering off into Sunday afternoon.
  • As soon as snow winds down, a new threat — freezing conditions possible Sunday night with decreasing clouds allowing temps to drop below 32 in many locations.
  • Drier days expected Monday and Tuesday ahead of another wet system builds over Western WA by mid next week
