...MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES AND A CHANCE OF SPOTTY LOWLAND SNOW AT
TIMES THIS MORNING THROUGH THE WEEKEND...
SPOTTY LIGHT RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS CONTINUE ACROSS WESTERN
WASHINGTON THIS MORNING...AS A DEEP UPPER LOW MOVES SLOWLY
SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE REGION. LOCAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF AN INCH
ARE POSSIBLE THIS MORNING BEFORE DRIER AIR BEGINS MOVING IN FROM
THE NORTH THIS AFTERNOON.
HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL ONLY BE IN THE MID 30S TO LOWER 40S
TODAY...AND CLEARING SKIES TONIGHT WILL ALLOW OVERNIGHT LOWS
RANGING FROM THE UPPER TEENS IN THE NORTHWEST INTERIOR TO THE
LOWER 30S ALONG THE SOUTH WASHINGTON COAST. FRIDAY WILL BE A COOL
AND MOSTLY SUNNY DAY.
A WEAK WEATHER SYSTEM WILL MOVE THROUGH WESTERN WASHINGTON FROM
THE NORTHWEST SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT...WHILE A COLD AIR MASS
REMAINS IN PLACE. CONFIDENCE IS NOT VERY HIGH IN THE DETAILS OF
THIS SYSTEM. AT THIS TIME THOUGH...IT LOOKS LIKE IT COULD PRODUCE LOCAL
SNOWFALL OF UP TO 2 OR 3 INCHES IN THE WESTERN WASHINGTON LOWLANDS...
MAINLY SOUTH AND WEST OF SEATTLE.
