We’ve got incoming precipitation overnight– but the good news is that most of us are too warm for sticking snow. We’ve got a WINTER STORM WARNING in the Cascades with 1-2 feet of snow in the next 36 hours. There’s a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for the foothills on either side with 4-6″ of new snow possible through 10p Sunday. A few isolated spots on the Olympic Peninsula and up north could see 1/2 inch of snow or less on Sunday too.
SUNDAY: We’ll be rainy in the morning with some areas seeing some fat snowflakes mixed on our higher hills around Puget Sound. Highs will again be in the 40-45 range with breezy conditions once the front passes. Widely scattered showers are still likely after the front passes too. It’ll be a chilly evening with the north winds– but we’ll dry out as we get temps near freezing.
MONDAY: Some icy and foggy spots are possible in the morning, but I think we’ll see some decent February sunshine in the afternoon. Highs are still going to be on the chilly side. Only again in the low 40s.
TUESDAY: Moisture returns and in the morning it could be cold enough for some snow or a rain/snow mix in some areas. Generally it looks to be all rain showers by the afternoon as we warm again into the 40s.
THE REST OF THE WEEK: Rain at times on Wednesday and then we’ll see some scattered showers finish up the week. We look to warm up about a degree or two every day. Next weekend at this early peek looks dry and warmer– but temps still a few degrees shy of the normal of 51 for this time of year.
