SEATTLE – The calendar is about to turn over to May, but parts of Western Washington could still see snow Thursday. The good news is this may finally be the last of it.

A cold front and showers could drop the snow level to 1,000 feet Thursday morning, says KING 5 Chief Meteorologist Jeff Renner. It could briefly drop lower in the form of heavy showers. Wet snow or a rain/snow mix could lead to brief accumulations.

Thundershowers are also a possibility in the afternoon. Highs will only reach the mid-40s to low-50s.
There could be heavy snowfall Wednesday night into Thursday in the mountains, with 6 to 16-inches possible. That could lead to an increased avalanche danger.

Renner says computer models indicate a shifting in the weather pattern that may signal the end of the wintry weather and a push toward warmer and not-so-wet conditions starting this weekend. Full forecast.
