Saturday Late Night Update…

Here’s the latest on the winter weather moving through the region…

Cold arctic air is moving into the Pacific Northwest and will stay through Tuesday.

The freezing level will drop to the valley floor before Sunrise Sunday.
Snow showers will be on and off and hit or miss with heavy bursts of
snow making it to the valley floor at times both Sunday and Monday. The
foothills and Cascades will see significant accumulating snow.he precipitation that we are going to see Sunday and Monday will be in showers, meaning it will be off and on and hit or miss.

For Sunday:

-The valley will see 1­-2 inches in some spots.

-The foothills in the Coast and Cascade ranges will see 3­­-5″.

-The passes and ski resorts will see 5­-8″

For Monday:

-Snow showers continue off and on for the valley for another 1-2 in some spots”

-The foothills in the Coast and Cascade ranges will see 2­-4″.

-The passes and ski resorts will see 3­-7″

As the jet stream moves back to the north, the arctic air will move with it.

This will move the snow level up to around 1,000 feet Tuesday. Showers
will still be in the mix at this point and this means the valley will
see a wintry mix while the foothills and Cascades will continue to see
snow.

-The foothills will see 0-1″

-The passes and ski resorts will see 2-4″

The fun doesn’t stop there.  By Wednesday night the freezing level will climb to around 6,000 feet.  Several storms are lined up for the end of the week, each packing quite a punch.  Wet and windy conditions are expected Wednesday and Thursday.
