Lowland snow in the forecast for next weekon January 11, 2012 @ 5:15 am (Updated: 9:42 am - 1/11/12 )
"For Sunday, look for snow showers or possibly mixed rain and snow showers around the Puget Sound," said KING 5 meteorologist Rich Marriott, on 97.3 KIRO FM Seattle's Morning News.
The Weather Service says a front will move into the Pacific Northwest over the weekend that could bring snow showers to the Western Washington lowlands Sunday.
The possible amount of snow that far out is uncertain, and the National Weather Service is watching how conditions develop.
University of Washington Atmospheric Sciences professor Cliff Mass says in his blog that the chance of snow remains in the forecast through Wednesday.
While conditions are expected to provide the potential for snow, Mass says the forecast is not ideal "for a truly major event."
Even if the lowlands don't see a lot of snow, Mass says the mountains will get it for sure.
"The mountains are going to get it...no doubt about that...which is very good news for skiers. Wax your skis!"
Forecasters also say there's a good chance of snow next week accumulating in the valleys of Eastern Washington.
