Parts of Western Washington saw some light snow Wednesday, and colder air moving in overnight could produce more.

A mix of snow and rain will be possible tonight into Thursday morning. With snow levels hovering between 400 to 700 feet, that could bring spotty accumulations of wet snow near the foothills above 800 feet north of Everett.

"Up to 4 inches of wet snow is possible especially as you move inland more than 4-5 miles away from the water," said KING 5 Chief Meteorologist Jeff Renner. "Best chance of accumulations will be mainly from Mount Vernon northward and particularly along I-5 near Lake Samish where the elevation of the freeway is higher." Full forecast

Showers should decrease and drift south Thursday morning and change mainly to rain showers below the 800-1,000-ft. level.

KING 5 viewers in the north Puget Sound reported light snow/rain mix and minor accumulations in Kirkland, Redmond, Lake Stevens, Mill Creek, Everett and Lynnwood early Wednesday evening.

Meanwhile, Washington Department of Transportation said it's ready to call crews in early and have others staying late to handle the expected snow. Area school districts will decide if classes are cancelled or if they'll start late Thursday, depending on road conditions.
