The big picture:
We'll have generally quiet weather on Monday before wet weather returns by Tuesday afternoon. Lowland rain with foothill and mountain snow is expected Tuesday PM to Wednesday. We'll get a break from the active weather on Thursday before more unsettled weather makes a comeback Friday through Sunday.
Overnight, lows drop again to the upper 20s and low 30s. Patches of freezing fog are possible. Unfortunately, this could create slick spots and black ice along with the reduced visibility. Low clouds will be most common in the usual areas: the south Sound and other fog-prone valleys. Fog should clear between 10 a.m. and noon Monday. Into the afternoon, we'll have partly to mostly cloudy skies with highs in the low to mid 40s.
By Tuesday afternoon, lowland rain makes an appearance in western Washington. Meanwhile, some foothill and mountain snow are in the forecast. Precipitation continues through Wednesday. Right now, snow levels look to only drop to above 500 ft. We'll track the specifics as the time draws nearer. This weather pattern won't be extremely cold; highs will still range in the 40s.
Thursday should be quiet and dry. Mostly sunny skies are possible!
Friday through Sunday will be a bit more active. Lowland rain with foothill and mountain snow return to western Washington. Temperatures likely won't be cold enough to support snow near sea level. Currently, it looks as if the snow will be focused above 500ish ft. We'll track it!
Hope you watch at 11 p.m.!
