Winter is keeping its grip on western Washington. This weekend will be snowy, cloudy, and cold.

After record-setting cold Friday morning (21 degrees), forecasters are expecting lowland snow across the Puget Sound late Saturday into Sunday.

The National Weather Service in Seattle reports Saturday will start out with increasing clouds. Snow moves in beginning in the afternoon. Highs will be in the 30s and 40s.

By evening, the snow moves into the metro area. Expect 2-4 inches of snow overnight on Saturday. The northern convergence zone could see heavier snow accumulation.

From meteorologist Nick Allard and the KIRO 7 TV weatherblog:

Temperatures Sunday afternoon could exceed 40 degrees in parts of the lowlands from Seattle south, so some melting and thawing of snow is likely but expect that travel will be difficult from Saturday night through Sunday morning before some improvement in spots.

Monday morning there should still be some lingering snow or wet snow showers, which may be an issue for parts of the morning commute. During the day and through Tuesday we’ll keep scattered snow/wet snow and rain showers going. It’s looking drier and a little milder starting Wednesday. It looks warmer on Thursday with some actual pockets of rain coming our way.”
