Decreasing showers or mixed rain/snow showers will fall on Western Washington overnight Thursday, which may leave some minor snow accumulations up to an inch in areas of Pierce County, the Kitsap Peninsula and near the Cascade foothills.

KING 5 Chief Meteorologist Jeff Renner sees a partial clearing, especially north of Seattle, and gusty winds developing in Whatcom County. Residents there could see wind gusts of 25-35mph.

Renner says expect low temperatures to hit the 20s, but possible bone chilling single digits to the north.

For Friday morning's commute, Renner says drivers should brace for local and freezing fog in the morning, along with ice back on the roads and lingering snow or slush.
