Is there more snow coming to Western Washington this week?
It’s cold around Western Washington, with temperatures into the 20s in some areas. In Eastern Washington, temps fell into the single digits. It doesn’t seem the frigid weather is leaving quite as quickly as it originally seemed.
KIRO 7 Meteorologist Nick Allard warns that snow or snow/rain mix could be headed for some Western Washington communities on Wednesday. Snow levels will be around 300-500 feet and Allard says moisture in the air should keep east of Puget Sound.
Expect another dry & sunny, but cooler than normal day for Tuesday. Morning lows will be in the mid teens and 20s, while afternoon highs will be in the 40s. Wednesday will see the possibility of rain/snow, along with the cooler than normal temperatures. #WAwx pic.twitter.com/Y9Dg8fDJXt

“Generally, snow levels for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be right around that 300 to 500 foot level,” Allard said. “Statistically, it’s harder to see real snow measuring up a bit. But I do think we’ll deal with scattered snow, wet snow, rain, mixed showers. Much like I saw 10 years ago at opening day at Safeco … wait, not Safeco anymore …”
“I don’t think we’ll see any huge issues, we just need to keep an eye out for some wet snow flakes mid to later portion of the week,” he said.
The National Weather Service also notes a potential for snow or wet snow, but rates it at a minor impact this week.
Dry and sunny weather will continue through Tuesday! Next system will approach the area mid-week bringing with it the next chance of precipitation. Snow levels will be low around 500-1000 feet. #WAwx pic.twitter.com/QuWb3ZJPUX
