Wednesday is shaping up to be another interesting day for weather in Western Washington.

KING 5 Meteorologist Rich Marriott expects showers and sunbreaks around Puget Sound, with the heaviest showers north of Seattle, which could include ice pellets. Rain is expected to steadily increase Wednesday night. Wind will also be a factor again at 10-to-15 mph and gusty later in the day. Highs will be in the mid-40s.

Expect to see another round of moderate to heavy snow in the mountains with 4-to-6 inches expected during the day and another 5-to-10 inches at night. Snow levels are expected to drop as low as 1,000 feet.

Drivers headed over the Cascades on Interstate 90 at Snoqualmie Pass and US 2 at Stevens Pass should be prepared for occasional closures for avalanche control or disabled vehicles.
