Get ready for one of the coldest nights so far this fall. Temperatures are expected to fall well below freezing Tuesday night.

"Unlike last night, there's absolutely nothing falling in terms of precipitation across Western Washington. What is falling - the mercury," said KING 5 Chief Meteorologist Jeff Renner. "Although temperatures will be very cold tonight, they're unlikely to be the coldest temperatures recorded this year. That is likely to happen either Wednesday night or Friday night."

Skies will mostly be be clear Tuesday night with temperatures dropping in the low to mid 20s near the Sound, and the upper teens to the mid 20s five miles or more inland.

Five to 15 mph Winds from Arlington south will result in wind chills of 15-22 degrees. North of Arlington, especially western Whatcom County, wind chills could drop to a bone-chilling -5 to 10 degrees.

Come Wednesday, expect another mostly sunny day with high temperatures in the low to mid 30s.

"The rest of the week looks sunny and even colder, except for a slight chance of snow flurries later Thursday evening into Friday morning, but there shouldn't be accumulations over the interior," said Renner.

"Another surge of cold air is likely on Friday into Saturday which could make it the coldest day of the week with lows in the teens and low 20's and highs only in the upper 20's to low 30's."
