Yes, it's March and it's still snowing in Western Washington

KING 5's Alex Rozier reports from I-5 south of Olympia

Another round of cold air and rain has brought some lowland snow showers into Western Washington. Most of it early Monday morning was concentrated south of Puget Sound and along the Washington coast. Several school districts were reporting delayed starts.

The snow level has dropped to near sea level. That means as these showers spit out, those on higher hills and away from water have the best chance of seeing anything from a trace to a couple of inches of snow.

The only fly in the ointment at this time is the possibility of a convergence zone into early Monday morning. Should that happen, snowfall accumulations could be more like 3 to 5 inches in places like Everett, Lake Stevens, Monroe, and Bellingham. 

The National Weather Service has opted to hold off on any additional advisories for now, but will likely issue one should a convergence zone form and hold. Stay tuned for more on that.

As for the Monday morning commute, slick spots on area roads and sidewalks are something to watch out for as you head out.  

If you live or work in the northern interior or foothills, pay close attention to the forecast before heading out as most updates will happen in “real time” in that scenario.
